Butterfly Canvas

I hope your having a lovely spring day.  It is so beautiful here today.  The sun is shining and the sky is blue.  The grass is in it's full shade of green and lots of dandelions.  Which I know are a weed, but I just love them.  Their beautiful yellow/orange color always look so happy to me.

Today, I will be taking part in the following challenges, and their links are provided below as well.  City Crafter, Anything But A Card, Through The Craft Room Door, and Artistic Inspirations.  I have a painted canvas to share with you.  One of the things I just love about being a Designer is using all sorts of mediums.  For this canvas, I used some acrylic paints along with some other items.  I will share all the details below the pic.

I layered a piece of Design Paper that had come in one of my Stampington Magazines onto a canvas. Then I used some white acrylic paint around the edges of the canvas and Design Paper.   I added some metalic blue and bronze acrylic paint to the canvas.  To create more of a white space in the middle, I then painted some more white paint across the middle portion of the canvas.  I then stamped a butterfly stamp in brown ink and stamped the butterflies across the canvas at a diagonal angle.  The last steps included adding the gold filigree heart charm in the middle of the canvas which I had used some distress paint on the edges.  And then trimmed the canvas in some white pearls.  Here are some more photos.
