Canvas & Journal Page

 Tiny Canvas

Hello 2Crafty friends!
Today I'm sharing a tiny canvas I created for a friend of mine as a present.

Before we get started though......

Please remember to become a blog follower & leave a blog comment to
be eligible to go in our monthly draw for a great chippie prize pack.

My canvas only measures 8x7 cm and I really love how small and cute it looks.
Even though it is so small I managed to use 7 chipboard pieces and 2 metal pieces 
 to create a dimensional cluster like a pyramid!
This is how it looked before I altered the chipboards and paint it all.

In order to alter the chipboard pieces I used H2Os watercolors and silks by ColourArte
 and black embossing powder by Lindy's Stamp Gang.

First I created a mixed media background and then I started gluing all the 
embellishments with 3D Gloss Gel.

I really love how this  mixed media pyramid looks!
Here are some closeups with details...

I like making pages with quotes I love in my black journal.
For this one I used some small butterflies of the Butterflies set to represent
 the crowd and one big Marianne's Butterfly to be main character of the quote.
I also used some pieces of the Circle Lace Panel - I think it matches so
 beautifully with the butterflies.

First I glued all the chipboard pieces on the page and then I painted them with
 black and white Gesso to create a light and dark shading all over the page...

For the small butterflies I used ColourArte sprays to color them and Lindy's Stamp Gang embossing powders with stamps on them and also on the background to embody them on it.

For the big butterfly I used irridescent silks to color it. They really make the perfect paint for black surface. I also used a White UniBall pen to make some doodling on it and also write the quote.
