‘Free’ Mixed-Media Butterfly Canvas

This small black 4″x 4″canvas is one of my many “tried to do something on here but it didn’t work'” canvases that I have lying around.  Today it got a make-over. First, I covered it with a thin layer of fiber paste.

Taking this pretty silk butterfly, I gently removed the wings.

I brushed fiber paste on the backs of the wings and adhered them to the wet canvas and let it dry.

Meanwhile, I found the perfect word.

Then some Titan Buff acrylic was lightly brushed all over the canvas.

Then some Burnt Sienna and Raw Umber was brushed around the edges.

Then I left it alone! I tend to overdo things like this so I just took some pictures and walked away.

Hope you’re having a wonderful weekend.  Thank you for coming by to see my art!

Ladybugs and Toadstools

These are some drawings I did recently. Not sure what to do with them yet.  They were drawn with ZIG pens onto old blank book pages and then colored with pencils.

I flipped through some books and found some cute phrases that went along with the drawings.  Maybe I could get them printed up as  cards for Knox’s Etsy shop?




Hope you’re having a wonderful Memorial Day weekend!

As always, thanks for stopping by. If you’ve got a blog, please leave me a quick comment so I can return the visit.
