Imagination on canvas

Challenges:
The Crafty Pad-wall hanging
One Stop Craft-3 things (3 butterflies, 3 dragonflies)
Simon Says Stamp-buttons
PaperPlay-button up
DYSU-teal
Totally Paper Crafts-stitching
Sweet Stampin-photo inspiration
Incy Wincy Designs-stitching
Simon Says Stamp and Show-recycle


This project all started with a blank canvas board and some butterflies, dragonflies and flowers that my sister in law got me from K & Company. They are in paper and acetate and I just love them. She also bought me two Tim Holtz stamp sets. This sentiment is from Lifes Possibilities. I recycled a tag, I cut the used part off with my scallop scissors and rounded the corners. It was already inked so I just stamped on it and then put stitch  marks around the edges, then added some ribbon. 
For the canvas, I painted it white, then used crackle medium, then this teal blue. I put ribbon around the edges and then added some buttons. I put butterflies, dragonflies and these gorgeous flowers. I wanted to fill in the bottom so I just added some prima flowers and buttons. I have a ribbon on the back so it can hang on the wall.
