Flourishes and Butterflies

Good Morning Crafty Friends, Followers and Visitors

A quick post tonight as I have quite a bit of admin to get sorted tonight after a busy day putting up shelves in my craft room and then sorting out all my stash and filling up my new storage.

Tonight I am sharing one of the canvases  I made yesterday at Kath's, It sure was lovely to be crafting with my good friend and we sure had a good time getting mucky paws, Kath's were worse than mine, I don't know how she does it :)



I painted the canvas first with Gesso. using Imagination Crafts Apple Blossom Stencil and Gesso with glass beads in at the top I stencilled this along the top 3 times.  I then pale blue with a touch of dark blue acrylic paint to tone it down.  Once this was dry I mixed Translucent paste with blue mica powder and stencilled the flourish mask around the bottom of the canvas.
I stamped the butterflies which are from Chocolate Baroque onto card which I had painted with what was left from the translucent paste with Versafine and embossed with clear embossing powder.
I added PVA glue spots to parts of the flourishes and dropped crushed glass onto this and left to dry.
Using Tim Holtz distress paint in white and dusted over the blossom.



This is a close up of the canvas.

Thank you for visiting today
