Be your own kind of beautiful

Hi all!  I'm back with my first mixed media art canvas done on my own.   So excited.  I like it and can't wait to hang it somewhere once I have the sides finished and get it sealed.  :)  This was fun and fast.   I used a number of different embellishments from Tim Holtz, prima flowers, some Michael's metal embellishments, a Dusty Attic sentiment, and a butterfly from the dollar store.  I also used a couple of Crafter's Workshop stencils in script and the time clocks with Wendy Vecchi embossing paste.  I colored it all with Lyndi stamp gangs sprays.  Here are some photos from the beginning to the end result.  :)

I gesso'd the whole canvas and embellishments before spraying. 


I finished the tips of the flowers, the sentiment and the metal embellishments along with the script embossing with Viva Inca Gold in old gold for some bling.

Thanks for stopping in and taking a peak at my newest project.  I appreciate the visits and would love to hear from you.  :) 
Until next time....
