Mixed Media Canvas

Happy Saturday,

What another gorgeous day in paradise. I started this canvas about 3 weeks ago and it has gone through several renditions before I was happy with the way it looked.

I painted the canvas with heavy black Gesso. Used molding pasted and Prima acrylic paint to create a portion of my background. Have you used the Prima foils yet, you should try them. That is how I added that glitzy gold in the background. To take the edge off the black I sprayed my canvas with gold and white Prima spray. I chose Julie Nutting's Ruby for my design, I paper pieced her and some beautiful jewelry, she has sparkly tights and shiny shoes. I chose her paper Belle Vie (just love this paper). The butterflies were cut from a Cheery Lynn Butterfly dies. I used Prima flowers, metals and stickers.

 I am entering my canvas in the following challenges:
Brown Sugar Challenge - #195 Anything Goes
