Soul of a Butterfly- Prima's Bloom Collection Canvas

I created this canvas for Prima Summer Shows, using one of the new Bloom Stencils designed my Jamie Dougherty. 

The stencil's name is Sharon but she might as well be called Keren. I really Identified with this woman. I felt connected to her soul. I know it sounds funny but somehow this woman has the soul of a butterfly and I could see myself flying free like her.

I used a combination of Color Bloom Sprays and Molotow Acrilyc paint markers to give her life. I then added some texture on the sides to bring it all together.

Prima Products:
980238- 12x12 Bloom Stencil- Sharon
573942- Color Bloom Glistening waves
573836- Color Bloom Tea Stain

Always So Happy - 7 Dots Studio Video Tutorial

I'm on the 7 Dots Studio blog today with this earthy and natural looking layout using the Nature Walk collection.

My daughter finds happiness in everything she does. Here she is swinging on a tire swing ready to take flight like a butterfly. This is why I added a fussy cut butterfly wing to her back.

 I compiled a step by step video below to show you how I created this mixed media layout:

 I used the 7 Dots Nature Walk collection to create a natural scenery around this picture. After creating a textured background I framed the picture with a Blue Fern Studios Chipboard frame and then added lots of matching Prima flowers and Flying Unicorn Metal embellishments.

I really wanted to create a lot of natural texture. That's why I also added the burlap.
