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.
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!
