Butterfly Canvas Collage

Hi, sweet friends! I’m up over on the Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft blog today with something that I’ve NEVER EVERRRRR done before. A collage on canvas. Yep! This is my very 1st one. Eeep!

I really had no idea where to start. I’m being super honest here. All I knew was that I had certain colors in mind, so I grabbed papers, GelatosĀ®, PITT Artist Big Brush Pens, textural items, stamps, and embellishments. And then I got started! I have the step-by-step tutorial on the Design Memory Craft Blog, if you’re interested in how I created this. But, for now, here is my finished piece.:



I’m REALLY happy with how it turned out and can’t wait to hang it up in my craft room. It matches perfectly! I am NO expert on this kind of thing, but if you have any questions on what I did, please ask me. I’m more than happy to answer. But, check out the post on Design Memory Craft 1st as the answer may be there. :)

Not listed: Butterfly stamp is from a retired Donna Downey stamp set from Unity called “Where You Are”, the washi tape is from Target, and the canvas, I can’t remember where I got. I think from Dick Blick. It’s 8″ x 8″ square.
