Jan McKenzie 's inaugural post for Memory maze.
 Jan has created an amazing canvas ,using a range of amazing techniques.

Hello and welcome to my first ever post as a member of the mm design team.
This canvas was created by first using mm stencils and texture paste.
I then added some mists and allowed to set, whilst this was happening I sealed the mm cross and assorted mm butterflies with gesso and then outlined them with liquid perfect pearls in gold and silver.

Using a thicker canvas I decided the edges were in need of some personality, I added some texture shapes with the mm 6 x 8 butterfly stencil and let it dry , I them stamped them with dark charcoal ink to the butterflies.

I have added brass corners and feet to the canvas so that it can stand  on its own.
I have used glitter mists and semco sprays to add the needed color.
The quality of the mm products allow you to do so much, this has been a great project to work on.

This is the front of a board book using one of the new maxi sayings 
some of the new bling and butterflies
