Little Thoughts

This is a canvas for a baby ..... a little baby.

First, I applied Distress Crackle Paint (Picket Fence - by Ranger) over some parts of the canvas and I waited for the its gettin dried. Then, I colored the new background with Alcohol Ink.

I sprayed over the canvas with Tuscan Sun Shimmerz Spritz and I covered it with Glossy Accents.

The blue applications on the edge of the canvas are made of white wax colored with Sapphire Shimmerz Spritz. I heated the wax with the embosser in a small jar and then I added Sapphire Shimmerz Spritz. I mixed the wax and Shimmerz Spritz and I poured down the colored wax on canvas.

I used Sunflower Shimmerz to highlight the outline of the green rhinestones, marking the flight of the butterflies.

The final touch: I used Blueberry Cobbler Shimmerz on the edge of the canvas, over the wax to make them even more brighter and around the photo, to create a small frame.

Have a great day with creativity!
