I colored this canvas with Aquarelle Watercolor Pencils (blue) then spritzed with water and blended the colors with my fingers. I used the Stamper's Big Brush from the Mix & Match Mixed Media Sampler to color a script stamp and stamped on the background. After heat embossing the white circles, I used the Neutral Gelato to add another layer of color to the canvas (I blended with my fingers). I traced the large words and butterflies (adhered to the canvas using Gel medium) with blue water colors and used a wet paint brush to blend into the background. I used Mix & Match Art Grip Color Pencils to add definition to the journaling.
As a finishing touch, I painted the smaller butterflies with Egyptian Gold Luminarte Radiant Rain Shimmering Mist and flicked Autumn Leaf Luminarte Radiant Rain Shimmering Mist onto the background.
