Welcome Thermoweb friends, Becki here. I’m excited to share a fun butterfly mixed media canvas with you. This canvas is similar to the “be brave” canvas I shared earlier. Both canvases have a larger sentiment, a few embellishments and a watercolored blue background.

This is a 6×6 canvas. I started creating this canvas by watercoloring the entire canvas with blue watercolor. After that was dry I added some clouds using metallic teal metallic texture paste, a stencil, and fine iridescent glitter. Then, the fun part began! I embellished the canvas with Deco Foil™ embellishments.

I created the butterflies by cutting concentric sizes of butterflies from Deco Foil™ Toner sheets and foiling them with new Emerald Watercolor Deco Foils (coming soon!) and Summer Rainbow Deco Foil™ (coming soon!). After I foiled the butterflies I stacked them together and ran them through my sewing machine to adhere them together.

After adhering the butterflies to the canvas I foiled the “fly” portion of the canvas. The “fly” portion of the canvas was created by die cutting “fly” with my electronic die cutting machine and toner sheets. Then I foiled the die cut with Amethyst Deco Foil™. (coming soon!)

I adhered everything to the canvas with SuperTape™. It stayed in place beautifully. You should try creating your own mixed media canvas. Decofoil makes it so easy! Thanks for stopping by the Thermoweb blog, I’ll see you again soon!
