Vintage Floral Butterfly Tree Canvas

Hi all

This is a Canvas I have created. I've been working on it over a few weeks now. I initially decorated the base of the canvas with various papers, inks, paints, texture paste and script stamps; and painted the tree but was then stuck on what to add to it. I left it for a while whilst I came up with what I wanted to do. Then I decided I wanted some bigger flowers, and found some Prima flowers and added some additional mixed media elements and smaller flowers I already had in my stash. Along with glitters and diamante embellishments. I also die cut a fancy flourish for the corner (not that you can see much of it, oops) and a quote. I did two layers for the die cuts and glued them together so that they were thicker.

Well here's a picture of it

 I'm quite pleased with how it has turned out. 

This is a video which shows some of the elements in more detail. You can even see the glitter sparkling. (Sorry it's a bit shaky I used my phone. It's the first video like this I've taken of my makes).

I have decided I am going to enter this into the following challenges:

Well that's it for now, as always thanks for stopping by.

Take care all and happy creating
