A Canvas..........

Hi Everyone, hope you are all having a wonderful festive season:):)  Christmas has been and gone for another year, we are still getting over it in my household and finding new homes for new toys and games!  Anyway, today I would love to share with you, a canvas, I created.  When I was asked to create this for a friend for her Secret santa gift to her brother in law, I was thrilled.  Little did we know how hard it was going to be to get a picture of their twins, 1 boy and 1 girl.  But we got there in the end,  I kept the canvas very neutral and I was quite surprised with the result.  Not much of an olive green person, but I just love how it turned out. 

Shimmerz used:
Ivy Leaque Coloringz
Vibes Egg Noggin
Shimmeringz Heavy Metal
Blingz Gold Glimmer
Shimmerz Antique Lace

Here are just a couple of shots of how I created the background.  First off I sprayed on my butterfly mask with Vibez in Egg Noggin and Coloringz in Ivy League.  I always let my paint drip and flick it back onto my canvas.

I then added some texture to the butterflies with some modelling paste and then I added some Shimmerz in Antique Lace and blended it in with my finger.

I then added all of my embellishments and added more highlights of Shimmerz to the flower edges and paper edges:)

Thankyou for visiting today, I hope you all have a wonderful and Happy New Year:):)
