Be Authentic

Welcome, today I have a canvas for you. This was one of those projects that I got totally lost in creating, I just went with the flow and it was such a joy to do. I am showcasing my A4 Stamp, Layered Grunge, my A7 Stamp Set, Date It and my Butterfly Stamp Set all available from AALLandCreate. A list of our stockists are available HERE, simply scroll down.
I began by layering my texture and Kassa's stencil #18 was perfect for the background. I then began adding layers of paint and this time around I used Distress Paints Twisted Citron and Peeled Paint. I adore green.
I also added a vintage oil dropper to my piece which gives fantastic dimension and adds another element of interest to my design. My butterfly sat perfectly on the dropper and I also incorporated some stamping on the wings using my A4 stamp set.
I incorporated an mdf piece in the background, again to add wonderful dimension. Can you spot the little face, I couldn't resist but to use this in my piece, it was lying on my desk and I thought, why not!
Some wonderful random stamping in the background using my A4 Stamp Layered Grunge and my Date It Stamp Set.
I also incorporated some micro beads for added texture and some gears for added interest. I also added my trademark cotton threads for further texture.
Delicate white splatters echo the white on the butterfly.
I also added some stamped numbers using my Date It Stamp. I love adding vintage elements to my designs and I am so pleased with how this piece came together.


These are the stamps incorporated in my canvas.

Thanks so much for stopping by. Tracy x x

Oh Tracy you can really see from the sheer movement of this canvas how much you have enjoyed creating it. Those moments are just the best as if creating with our eyes closed only to open when it's complete.
The green is divine and I love the layering and detail upon the Butterflies, they are fabulous stamp sets although I have yet to get the A4 one tut tut!!
Thank you for sharing wishing you a wonderful weekend.
Hugs Tracey xx
