i love crafting.  it keeps me sane.  if i'm having (or had) a crappy day, i can craft and sort of escape for a while. forget things for a while.  which is what i needed to do last night.  i needed to get my hands dirty.  this is the end result.  a mixed media canvas.  i had an idea in my head of what i wanted to do.  this isn't exactly that idea, but i do like how it turned out.  i used a bunch of butterflies from a butterfly assortment from creative cuts & more.  it has a few different kinds of butterflies cut out of a bunch of different material.  all which are fun to paint!

material:  canvas, grungeboard, velum, acetate, velvet
paint: gesso, acrylic
stamps:  susan weckesser/unity
other: bubble wrap, modeling paste, pen

Can't tell if the dots are textured or just stamped. Regardless, they look very textured and the color is great.
