Belive in your dreams/May Arts-Lawn Fawn

Go check out my post over at the May Arts Blog, I made these super cute canvases :)

Hi this is Jenifer here with you today with a cute canvas project to share with you.  When I received the beautiful flutter by stamps from Lawn Fawn I was surprised to see that Lawn Fawn also has paper.  I received the Bright Side collection and these little canvases popped in my head.
These 6×6 canvases were very easy to do, the hardest part was waiting for things to dry.  The first step was punching a border on your background paper and Mod Podging it on the canvas.  Wait for it to dry.  I then took a couple shades of paint and just randomly spread it around with my fingers, finishing it off with a little bit of white to tone it all down.  I used Wow embossing powders in Metallic Platinum Sparkle for the butterflies and the quote to really have them stand out.  Cut out the butterflies and then crease them on body so it looks like they are flying.
I used the bakers twine to make it look like little butterfly trails, the wired pearls so it looks like the butterfly heads and antennae.  I also used the platinum velvet around the edges of the canvases.
I hope you have enjoyed my project for today; I now need to figure out where to hang these…
