Butterfly Art

Love how this one came out! I have it hanging in my front hallway!

Mixed media butterflies and flowers

Piece I made to hang on the wall in my bathroom. I painted the background with white gesso first to cover the old image then drybrushed a blue on so the white would show underneath. Using mod podge I used scrapbook paper around the frame and then adhered the butterflies and flowers. After all that dried, I used Faber Castell pitt pens to highlight and shade and put some texture on the flowers and butterflies using heavy body paint. After that dried I made an antique wash of raw umber paint, water and mod podge and applied that in sections with a brush and wiped it off with paper towel. I am soooo pleased with how this came out! It makes me happy!
