Today I have a butterfly canvas to share with you - I did have fun making this one although it kind of developed as it went along - over a few days!
I started off with a blank A4 canvas and started by doing some diecutting. I added some memory box flowers and grasses along the bottom and a marianne butterfly in the middle. Then I used whites stencil paste and an imagination crafts stencil to add some butterflies in the top area of the canvas. I then coated everything in gesso and once dry got my distress paints out.
I used mowed lawn at the bottom of the canvas and broken china at the top of the canvas and smooshed this about and left it to dry. Next I applied some sprays - cosmic shimmer mist sprays in purple and gold and also some london blue dylusions. I mopped up some of the spray with some kitchen roll.
Next I added some cosmic shimmer golder pearl texture paste through another imagination crafts stencil (hexagons) and left to dry. Finally I did some script stamping (its my fave stamp again from Crafty Individuals) and then stamped the scrolls. I stamped the butterflies onto paper and coloured them with distress inks and stains. The butterfly stamps are from Sheena Douglass.. Then I fussy cut them and added them and the sentiment to the canvas.
