Remain Creative & Curious - Mixed Media Canvas

Good morning! Popping in quickly with a little canvas I made recently. I started it at the Create with Kate craft event last weekend and have been playing around with it since. 

On the background I used a mix of Dylusions & Glimmer Mist sprays, drywall tape, stencils and stamps. Then I layered on some buttons, flowers, chipboard lattice, washi tape, chipboard butterfly/bird cage and chipboard letters. I Gesso'd them all and then sprayed them with more Dylusions.

 Taking a flat brush I added 2-3 layers of Silks 'Emperor Gold' acrylic glaze to the raised areas (buttons, butterfly, cage, letters, etc) and to the edges of the large flower. 

I added some Chit Chat stickers, sealing them with matt medium. 

And finally I added some crackling paint to the butterfly. Seriously cannot get enough of this stuff - LOVE IT!! 

 I am entering this into the Mixed Media Place Emotional Challenge which is Curiosity 

Have a creative day!
