B is for......Buttons and Butterflies

Morning all!! Whoops a daisy!! Well slap my hand and call me naughty! I apologise for not being on here nearly as often as I should of.......pls Santa dont ignore me for being a naughty girl!!! I will make a new years resolution I promise to blog more regularly!
Anyway enough pathetic grovelling lol.

Today's project is from last Sundays Splogical Inspirations show I began playing with the canvas and my acrylics with the intention of making a hanger! Hmmmmmm not quite eh?? lol best laid plans and all!! All the canvas are pre loaded with gesso so it was straight in with base coats of beige and pale blues
On the bigger canvas' I took the tri butterfly mask and simply blended the pale blue and turquoise over the top with a good ol' kitchen sponge!
For the smaller canvas' I free painted turquoise circles on the blue and then took the swirl part of the same mask and applied silver Ferro paste through the mask for more dimension.
After that it was free wheel time with the buttons, tim holtz muse tokens and wooden embellishments some of which I stamped using memento cottage ivy to add a little extra interest.
I hope u like this offering would love to hear your feedback!! Take care stay safe
crafty cheers for now!
Love and Hugs Rae xx
