Summer is always a mixed bag for me. I can't stand hot temperatures, but I do love some of the pretty aspects of it. Like flowers blooming and winged things flitting about. So, in one of my more "Be Kind to Summer" moments, I was inspired to do the above piece.
I began with a 5 x 7 canvas that I covered in gesso. While still wet, I smooched a piece of iridescent punchinella (also known as sequin waste) into the paint -- the gesso acts as glue as it dries.
After the canvas was dry, I stamped on it with stamps from RubberMoon, using yellow and pink craft ink. I also smeared around some blue StazOn Studio Glaze and gave it a spritz or two of blue irRESISTibles.
I coated the butterfly circle and extra butterfly with blue irRESISTibles and, while still wet, sprinkled on blue glitter and gave them a spritz of white irRESISTibles.
When everything was completely dry, I glued it all together. Now I have a pretty little reminder that Summer, even with the obnoxious heat, is sometimes not so bad at all.
