Butterfly Dreams Canvas - by Toni Herron

 Welcome back Memory Maze friends and chipboard lovers!
Toni here today to share with you a truly lovely and girly canvas that actually has quite an airy feel to it and a matching card made with the leftovers. I hope you enjoy!

 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 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!
