I submitted this canvas project for last week's Swirlydoos Design Team challenge. Our challenge was to create a dimensional canvas project using a variety of mediums.

I started by painting a background using watercolors. Then I used a stencil and modelling paste to create the butterflies, which I then painted with glimmer watercolors. I misted the canvas with pearl Glimmer Mist and added some vintage paper scraps as a base for my photo. I added some white gesso to the paper to mute the colors even more.

I added a layer of tea dyed cheesecloth and vintage tulle trim beneath my photo of Lily Munchkin frolicking in the sand.

I used a large swirl from Dusty Attic as a frame for the photo. I painted and inked the swirl and added Diamond Dust glitter here and there along with some tiny flowers.
Unfortunately, I won't be continuing on in the challenge, but I had fun creating!
