Now it's a pair

Hello everyone,  I'm sharing another canvas today,  all the products are from DecoArt. It started as a twin!

On both canvasses I scraped Media Fluids in various greens and blues and heat dried them. 
Then out came the Media Mists. 


At this point these canvasses say good bye. I completly changed my mind and continued with only one. 

I decided I want this one to hang along side the canvass from Thursday. I am hanging them both in my passage by the front door.

I wanted more texture on this one and so glued some hessian which I had pulled about onto the canvass. 

I spritz the paints over this once it was dry, and to tie it to my previous canvas, I added embossing powders and Frantage before the Matt medium was dry, and heated it to make it do its magic.


I prepared my butterfly and although I loved it I felt it wasn't right.

I painted it white but still wasn't happy

I took the butterfly off and folded it in half. I used it as a template and cut anther one out. I used the waste as a stencil with crackle paste. I used the heat tool,  but before it was dry I used a pen lid to add some circles. Once completly dry I applied Antiquing Cream in burnt Umber. I loved the effect as I rubbed off the cream. This was complimented with Liquid Glass spread evenly over the butterfly and 
then dried.

I hope you like it. Take care
