Sunshine and Butterflies

The weather has been bitterly cold here and when I saw the challenge at   Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge  was the letter "B" I knew I wanted to create a summery canvas with some butterflies floating in a summery scene. 
I had started a burlap canvas awhile ago and had set it aside.  This was the perfect backdrop to create my summery scene.



 I painted a coat of gesso added some texture wit the embossing pasted and stencil.  I misted a combination of yellow, orange and purple.  

I created a mix of tissue paper grass, stems and flowers by misting the tissue paper.  I stamped words on the tissue paper for the flowers and tore petals.  I added seed beads to the middle of the flowers.
