Create Yourself!!


"Life isn't about Finding...Its about Creating Yourself"

And what goes best with this...other than Butterfly!!!

Yup its especially for More than Words challenge whose 1st challenge is about Personality & Selfie.

This is one of my personal favorite selfie and i love to use that for this theme. Butterfly symbolises a free spirit kind and it just matches my personality. This art form has given me such freedom and liberty to let free of myself to explore me much.


Took 8"x10" canvas and primed with gesso.
Then roughly figured out the area for the one side of butterfly wing and started to paint it with Prima's Antique pink chalkboard paint, as other side decided to use Picture.
The edges of butterfly are made with the Prima's modelling paste and hit with Lindy's Opal sea oats spray.


Used TCW stencil "Art is" for all outer textures and its hit by LSG glory of seas gold spray. This spray edged butterfly's wings on its periphery so well.
Applied prima crackle clear texture paste inside the wing and hit the heatgun. Wanted to mimic the butterfly a bit for its textures and so used TH bubbles stencil using Prima modelling paste. Then hit by LSG cocklebells coral spray.

Then for the embellishments part, used florishes chipboard which was primed with gesso and misted with LSG glory gold spray and highlighted with Inka gold gold. It topped up with Prima resin piece which is gessoed, misted with LSG coral spray and highlighted as above.

A floral cluster is made using roses, hip roses, mini roses and mulberry flowers.  Roses are heat embossed using Ranger fine gold Ep.


And the bubbles textures are highlighted by inka gold gold. To mimic even more butterfly wing, took cabochon domes, sprayed with Glimmer mist black and hit by heat gun. When the mist were about to dry completely, took baby wipe and wiped central part, so that a circle is formed mimicing the eyes on butterfly wings.

Diagonal corner of the canvas are heat embossed using Stampendous Shabby pink Ep, which is new in my stash. Am in love with those chunky Eps. Then Black gelatos are used for the corner highlighting of canvas and the stencilled textures.

Two butterfly stickers for the extra final touch to finish off the canvas.

Hope you like it!!

  16. This is a really visually clever project! This is a wildly creative interpretation of a butterfly and I love how skillfully you mixed photography with the soft elements like flowers. I love how the picture is incorporated into the side of the butterfly, but not in a totally obvious way. You did a remarkable job and have made me think of butterflies in a new way. Thank you for the inspiration and for sharing your talents with us for this week's Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge!
