Butterfly Canvas

{jane bosi}  Happy Thursday, Junkies!!  Today, I am sharing a canvas I created using some goodies from Technique Junkies!

I had purchased a package of these sweet little 4 x 4 canvases a while ago.  I wasn't sure what I was going to do with them, until I realized that they are perfectly sized for use with the beautiful Palettini background images!  I've chosen the Vintage Botanicals Collage for mine, but am a little obsessed with making a set and also using Vintage Bicycle Collage, Vintage Balloons Collage and Vintage Daisy Collage or Vintage Ship Collage!  Wouldn't that be a sweet wall collection?

I always use a combination of acrylic paint and gellatos to add color and shading on my canvas work.  For this one, I've also added a dusting of glitter glue to several areas.  The butterfly is colored and glittered on the first layer. I also added a vellum butterfly over the top to simulate the fluttery beauty of these amazing creatures!

Enjoy and have an inky day!  Don't forget to be awesome!
TTFN, Jane
