Altered canvas

Hello ladies and gents! Today I would like to share with you a piece of canvas that I altered using lots of goodies from G.C.D Studios and Tattered Angels. I've included my supplies list and instructions so that you can create one of these of your own. I love how mine looks up on the wall.

Altered Canvas
1 4”X4” Canvas (Canvas Corp), 1 Flower (Maya Road), Large Chipboard Butterfly(G.C.D Studios), 1 Yellow Candy Dot (G.C.D Studios), Chipboard Word Tiles (G.C.D Studios), Foam Squares (Creative Memories), Chip Art Metal Embossing Stamps (butterflies) (G.C.D Studios).
Glimmer Glam: Organic Garden, Be Positive
Glimmer Mist: Aquamarine, Dark Denim, Spanish Moss

*Coat canvas with Aquamarine Mist. Once dried, remove the cap from the Dark Denim Mist and tap some of the mists on top of the Aquamarine. Coat the edge of the canvas with the Organic Garden Glimmer Glam. Coat the top of the canvas using the Be Positive Glimmer Glam. You will see a little bit of the Aquamarine Mists show through especially around the edges.

* Emboss the chipboard butterfly wing using the Chip Art stamps and then coat the surface of the wing using the Dark Denim Mist. Adhere the wing using foam squares to the far left of the canvas about a half inch from the edge.

* Spray a piece of white flower with Spanish Moss Mist and then gently apply the Be Positive Glimmer Glam to the center of the flower with a brush. Apply a yellow candy dot to the center of the flower and adhere the flower to the butterfly wing.

* Glue to pieces chipboard word stickers to the bottom right of the canvas. Facebook

I have wanted to try something like this but I've been a big chicken. This looks so cute and yet also doable. TFS
