Dreams do come true...

Hello Everyone...

Here i am with my second mixed media canvas.Another quote which i strongly believe in.."Dreams do come true". Yes lots of mine came true and i hope the same for keep dreaming...

Here are the pics..hope you like it..

And here is how I made it.

1. I covered the the canvas with thin layer of gesso and once it dried, i added some pattern paper and white net lace randomly using modge podge to give some texture.

2. Next I painted over it with my fingers using acrylics paint ( color used - Lemon Yellow, Crimson Red and Viridian) till i satisfied with the background.

3. Then I added Chronlogy Urban Stamp from docrafts randomly using memento black ink. 

4. After that i added some texture using modelling paste, here i used my paper doily as a stencil ( though it is not so prominent because i have applied a thin layer, which i realized later ;)).

5. Once everything was dried, I glued the twine, my hand drawn butterfly (add some red color blings on it) and the sentiment ( highlighted the sentiment with black marker).

6.Then i spattered white gesso on my canvas using the paint brush after covering the butterfly.

7. Finally i covered the whole thing with a coat of mod podge and it was done :).
