Butterfly Wings Mixed Media Canvas- Prima's Finnabair Products

This mixed media canvas canvas was created for Prima using the new Finnabair Mixed Media Products

I wanted to create a collage style mixed media canvas using some of the new Finnabair products. I mainly used the Art Basics Soft Matte Gel Medium, Craft Matte Gel Medium and Modeling paste. I was able to seal paper and colour on the background and create texture using the modelling paste.

I really like the quote I made up as I really feel its very meaningful to me and you guys all know how much I love butterflies so its befitting that I created this canvas.

I used a few Color Bloom sprays to add colour to the canvas: Vintage Coal, Gilded, Gold Foil and Tangerine.

as you can see, the butterfly is 3D and sticks out of the canvas as if its ready to take flight!!!

Here I'm holding the wings with my hands so you can see they are loose. I covered them in gel medium to make the wings much thicker and malleable.
