Mixed Media Fly Canvas

This project actually started out as an attempt to make a card for one of my Graphic 45 projects.  As you can see it did not turn into a card.  I immediately felt better once I decided to turn this into a mixed media canvas project. My inspiration colors were: Tuscan Sunset, Bon Voyage, Heritage Kraft 

I used Steampunk Spells and a few precious butterflies from a coveted sheet of Olde Curiosity Shoppe. Here are the rest of my supplies.

Steampunk Spells 8x8
Steampunk Spells 6x6 Pattern and Solids
Steampunk Spells Flowers
Steampunk Spells Chipboard 2
Staples: Ornate Keyholes and Keys
Olde Curiosity Shoppe 12x12
Craft wire
Burlap Canvas
Matte Medium
Tissue Tape
Ideaology Newsprint Letters
Ideaology Tissue Wrap
Gilders paste, copper
E6000 adhesive

Lots of layers, matting, gilders paste and embellishments give this canvas piece a lot to look at.

I even made a snaguide for how to make the flowers!

Hope you enjoy!
