Hello friends! Today I would like to share a mixed media canvas I created. When I saw the new Flight of Fancy Butterfly Girl from Gina's, I was truly inspired to create something fun. I used this
5 x 7 canvas and sprayed several colors of my Fireworks sprays on the background. I really wanted this to be a fun and colorful piece. I then tore up some dictionary paper and layered that on top, then added more sprays and some texture paste and white gesso just to soften the look.
Once I finished the background, I took the beautiful butterfly girl and used some chunky white embossing powder and covered the whole piece of chipboard. While the embossing powder was still hot, I made an impression with my large script rubber stamp in the hot powder and it leaves behind a cool textured look. After that was cooled I used some of my iris blue Gilder's Paste and gave the whole piece a light going over to pick up the script.
I added some lovely resin butterflies and fussy cut out some paper ones to add to her hair. I love the effect it gave. A few little flowers finished it off nicely.
I hope you have enjoyed my flight of fancy today, and don't forget to check out all the new items in Gina's Store!
