Butterflies are in the Air

Welcome back for the final day in the Maya Road and Stampendous blog hop! Remember to go leave some love along the way for opportunities to win prizes.

I took a canvas tag book and turned  it into a wall hanging:
I spent the longest time playing with the hanger and trying to get it into the right shape. :)

I painted over the surface with Gesso.  I stamped music across the background with a few other postage stamps.  I stamped the butterflies on tissue paper and colored them with STAEDTLER Karat Aquarell  watercolor pencils. I then used Americana Decoupage to apply the butterflies.

I accented with the Maya Road ribbons and trims.

Hop along to all the other wonderful inspiration:
