You'll need to get comfy and perhaps
get yourself a cuppa.
We have a scrummy canvas today from
and here she is to talk you through it:
I stencilled with modeling paste onto a canvas board using a
Carabelle Studio stencil and a circle stencil [brand unknown],
I also used matte medium to glue some gauze to the canvas,
when everything had dried I gave it a coat of gesso.
I coloured the canvas with Gelatos, spreading the colour with a baby wipe.
I sprayed some dragonfly blue and brimstone wings Color Bloom
onto the edges of the canvas and let it run down.
Whilst this was still wet I coloured the edges with
blue and black Gelatos and used my finger to spread it.
I stamped the collage image onto tissue paper
and glued it to the canvas.
I stamped the circles twice onto card and
cut them out leaving one image whole and
cutting single circles from the second one.
I left the circles black and white
as the background has a lot of colour.
I coloured some card with the dragonfly blue Color Bloom
then stamped and die cut the butterfly.
Using my finger I spread some gold wax over the raised areas
and added some coloured resin circles that I found in my stash.

I glued the butterfly to the canvas and added
a metal pointer for the body and some gold wire for the antenna,
I also added a Tim Holtz small talk sticker.

I said it was scrummy. I was't wrong.
Those Color Bloom Sprays are so sparkly,
full of pigment and really good value.
This would brighten up any shadowy area
never mind sparkle in the sunlight
Thank you Hazel
