Canvasing 'Happy Thoughts'

Hi there and Welcome!
Today's post is for the current challenge
of Felt/Cork or Canvas etc over at CAS Mix Up Blog
All the details are Here
You will have seen my first entry using cork.
This time I thought I would play with canvas.
It really is a fun paper and gives a great
texture look to your project.
I started by spritzing some Turquoise Brusho's
onto my canvas then decided to add a bit of texture
with Mont Marte Pearl White Acrylic Paint
then some White DecoArt Crackle Paste - 
I should have added more but was just an experiment.
I left it overnight and was happy with the result so continued
by cutting out 2 Spellbinder Butterflies in canvas.
 Attached them to my background and adhered to white card for stability.
Mixed up a little more of what I used for the background,
covering both cutouts and attached an oval gem.
Added some splatters and finished with my sentiment
from STAMPlorations Bloom Happy in Oxide Salty Ocean.
To blend with my pearly background I chose some
Pearlescent Textured card stock.
Here is a close up of the shimmer/texture - 
My Mix is Canvas, Stamping, Die Cutting, Mixed Media.

Thanks for dropping in today
Till next time - Cherrio from

That canvas butterfly is a gem on the beautiful mix media background. Love that you used only the Turquoise Brusho, it gives it so much cohesion. Beautiful done Ina, love it.
