This past week has started me down a new path in life and I am excited for it. So this piece signifies my new beginning, off the beaten path.
Pictures below are the supplies I used.
I was going to do a WOW (white on white) but wasn't feeling it today, maybe tomorrow.
I started with a small black canvas and my inspiration was the butterfly ($1.00 bin score!) and my FolkArt Metallic paints.
I used my new BoBunny stamp and Very Berry chalking ink to stamp the purple hash marks (don't forget the sides!) Then another BoBunny stamp and the Blue Topaz FolkArt paint to add the corner stamp.
While that was drying I worked on my sentiment "Off the Beaten Path" that is another new stamp. I used the Amethyst FolkArt paint on that stamp. I tore the paper down to the size I wanted, then used a clear embossing powder over the sentiment to give it a glossy appearance. Shiny!
Lastly I added some cheesecloth and the butterfly. I shaped the butterfly with my fingers to make the wings stand off the canvas.
Here is another close up, the light is reflecting off the butterfly and it makes it look like there are yellows and reds but that isn't true. The butterfly is all purple and blue. The color spectrum is a wonderful thing!
Thank you for stopping by and leaving your lovely comments. It brightens my day! Carpe Diem!
