Every End is a new Beginning ♥♥

       Happy new year 
       Today I'm sharing a New Year themed mixed media canvas I did in a hurry to gift to my dad's friend's family in Canada. 


       It all started with a Brustro's 10x14inch stretched canvas board.
       Added a layer of gesso & once it dried used my homemade texture paste with Hot Off The Press Butterfly Focal Stencils to add some butterflies & corner flourishes.



       Few more shots to show the amazing detailing in this stencil, I love it 



       I was in a hurry & forgot to take photos, so here is what I did. Used acrylic colors to color the butterflies pink, the flourishes green & the rest blue. Just rough coloring to give a distressed finish. 

.

       Then stamped some flourishes from ItsyBitsy stamp set all around & embossed it using clear embossing powder.
       Used Inca gold Gold color to give some highlights to the textured surfaces & the clear embossing. 
       Finally added some snow flakes using Liquid platinum embossing powder (snowing there in Canada ).


       And stamped the sentiments with black Archival ink & added few highlights with my Uniball white pen.


       Not my best but just something I put together in the short time I had & I think it came out okay 

♥♥ Dream, Create, Inspire ♥
