Build Your Vision Spring Canvas – “Spring & Butterflies” Challenge

Today Crew Member Christine Santos share a gorgeous project inspired by our current Spring & Butterflies Challenge. Christine tell us:


“Lush greenery of Spring inspired me to create a canvas which is my vision for this year…to build just the way I want to. I have paired Spring’s gorgeous green shades with Pantone’s 2018 ultraviolet color. Flowers, butterflies and texture adorn this canvas, featuring 7Gypsies’ Spectacles Architextures and Parchment Rub-ons.”



Products from Canvas Corp Brands: 

7gypsies Architextures Findings – Spectacles
7gypsies Architextures Parchment Rub-On – Build
Canvas Corp Spring Showers: Butterflies on Ivory Paper
Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist – Kiwi
Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist – Periwinkle Boquet
Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist – Pearl
Tattered Angels Chalkboard Mist – Violet Rose


step 1


Prime the canvas with gesso and stencil some texture paste through. Spritz and layer the Tattered Angels Glimmer Mists on the primed canvas and let dry completely. Build a flower cluster on the middle of the canvas and generously spritz with the Tattered Angels Chalkboard mist and let dry. Then, spritz a different color of Glimmer Mist on top and let dry completely.

step 2


Add some 7Gypsies Architextures Build Rub Ons around the cluster. Add some beads and flakes around for added texture. Fussy cut couple of butterflies from Canvas Corp’s Spring Showers: Butterflies on Ivory Paper and adhere these on the canvas. Add some last touches of Glimmer and Chalkboard misting around the canvas.
