Butterfly Bliss

Last night, I sat down and began working on a new 11x14 canvas, that I named Butterfly Bliss.

The first thing I did was put down some scraps from the blue paper bin.
Next, I painted a border on using Master's Touch Acrylic in Ocean Green.
 I used a cloud stencil and modeling paste to make the clouds.
Then, I took a stencil and misted on some teal, black, and red.
Some of the butterflies are Bo-bunny rubons.

Now, I took the bliss embellishment and sprayed it with some red mists, and distressed the outside of it with Vintage Photo.
I added the butterfly and the white flower on the embellishment, both by K&Company.

 Next, I wrote this quote by Nathaniel Hawthorne on card stock, cut it out and adhered it to the canvas.
 This guy here is from K&Company. It was origanally a cream color, but I used my distress inks, Victorian Velvet and Peeled Paint.
 Look at the bling I added to the wings! I also added bling to some other butterflys.
 And last, below "Bliss", I added a white lace ribbon, and a blue bow on top of it :)

I had a lot of fun with this canvas, and I tried not to be too serious about it,  I just wanted to enjoy it!
Thanks for stopping by, and HAPPY WEDNESDAY!
