A Canvas!

Good evening Lovelies! Hope you have all had a fab weekend and good weather! We've had gorgeous weather, still a bit nippy but the sunshine's been glorious! We've not had a lot of chance to enjoy it, we've all had that dreaded tummy bug that's going around, started Wednesday with baby, spend 4 hours up A&E with her! Well you can't take chances when their fostered, then I came down with it early hours Friday morning, I asked hubby to take the day of work to help with baby as it was too much for me, then low and behold he started in the morning, so not only was we all poorly but I didn't get any help! Because of course men always suffer more! Lol and to top that, I was due to go to the theatre at Canterbury in the evening to see Dirty Dancing! So gutted it was the last night last night and a sell out :( still my Mum said it was brilliant!

So less of my woes, I've had a jolly good play tonight in my craft cabin, I've had my melt pot going! I made this canvas using several techniques!

I used acrylic paint to creat the colour, iridescent texture paste through a Dylusions mask, I stamped onto tissue paper and adhered it using beeswax, I used cosmic shimmer gilding wax to create some shine, I coloured the face with Pan pastels, the butterfly is a die cut then dipped in UTEE in melt pot! I hope you like it?

I'm pretty pleased with it as its not something I'm comfortable doing but it's nice to challenge myself once in a while! Thank you for visiting!
