Time Heals The Soul....Canvas

I couldn't resist using the beautiful and delightful "butterfly frame" die!
I always have a canvas sitting close by as a place to give leftover stucco/gesso mixtures, extra paints and little scraps.
Ready for something to spark in my creative mood....

Die~Namites Dies: "Butterfly Frame"

NEW - Butterfly Frame

Again I took regular printer paper and cut out the beautiful butterfly frame die..then glued the whole piece together to give the frame a backing...Then I started inking the outer frame piece with Prima's chalk inks, then using gesso to give tooth and texture. Lastly glimmer mist painting on the edges around the frame...and of course a little glitter glam to adorn the butterflies....added some stamping and more mist sprays....
and you have a beautiful canvas piece and background.
Speaking of the background of course I used leftover stucco, inks, paints and watercolors. Twinkling H2O's add the most fabulous and smooth color tones.

Everything you see here as embellishments I found sitting on my creative desk, little pieces and doo dads...just love the look of this....frame so bright and cheerful so out of my comfort

"time heals the soul"
speaks loudly to me and my heart right now....

Don't be affraid of trying something new and off the wall in your creative style...slap leftover mediumns and create beautiful backgrounds...and scraps left on your desk.

Thanks for stopping by,
Peggy Lee
