Butterfly Dreams Canvas

  Welcome back Memory Maze friends and chipboard lovers!
I am excited to bring to you today my first DT projects for 2016.. A truly lovely and girly canvas that actually has quite an airy feel to it - A matching card - And a layout that I had already shared a few days ago thrown in as an extra.. :)

 Butterfly Dreams

This canvas is approx. 12"x6" which made it perfect for some 6x6 pattern papers the brand new range out by Magnolia Lane.. I adhered the paper to the canvas using a Heavy Gel medium paste and then coated the top and added some strips of torn paper in the middle..
The next step was to lightly paint all over the canvas with gesso, lightly wipe some away - Spray with some mists, coat again with gesso and again lightly wipe away..
Then it was time to have some fun with a brand new Memory Maze stencil!! LOVE LOVE!! I used clear impasto for this, so it is difficult to see in the photos, but in real life it looks great! The design is a Diamond pattern.. 

The flowers are from the Adalyn collection by Couture Creations, plus that big white flower in the middle which I painted the centre Gold to match the butterfly.. I actually painted the Butterfly gold with Ranger Adirondack alcohol ink so it would match the centre of the mini flowers.. I continued this by painting a Gold rim on the edge of the canvas also..
The Butterfly Dreams circle and the hanging Hearts chipboard pieces were simply painted white with gesso.. The last additions to the canvas were the strip of pearls on the right side and the Memory Maze bling at the top..

Matching CARD

 A simple card created with the leftovers..
This time I coloured the chipboard piece with some heat embossed powder.. Added a couple of flowers, the butterfly, gold rim edges and the pearl strips... This card took me no longer than 5 mins to complete.. Such a lovely and quick card!

 TOGETHER layout

One last layout to share with you.. I made this the other day and am loving it so much that I really wanted to share it with you again.. I have used a beautiful Memory Maze Doily piece.. Coated it black using Gelato and a paintbrush dripped in water.. Then spread some white gesso on top lightly..
I used only one piece of 12x12 pattern paper, one piece of 12x12 cardstock, gesso and impasto pastes for texture and the embellishments that you can see - Flowers and title letters.. It turned out much better than I thought it would.. lol..
Thank you so much for joining me today
