Fly! Mixed Media & Genuinely Jane Studios

Happy Tuesday! Today is my first post over at Genuinely Jane Studios
as a Design Team member. I am so excited to be there and very excited to share my project with you as well...
Once upon a time there was an old discarded canvas... and when it thought its time had come and it would no longer be... it found itself on my desk!

I started my covering the canvas in a layer of gesso. You can see where I pulled off the paper that was on the canvas. In the lower left you see the gesso... I covered the whole canvas.
Once the gesso dried I painted it with my Behr paint. It is a sample of the color that I am using in my bathroom renovation. I am creating this canvas for my bathroom...

Next time for a little Tim Holtz Tissue Paper and Creative Inspirations Paint...
 ...and some more Creative Inspirations, some Stampendous Mica Fragments, an altered zipper...
I decided that I wasn't feeling the bright yellow and orange butterfly. I brushed over it with more of the Behr Paint.. I then used the accent color I am using in my bathroom and dry brushed some of it on to the canvas... and then for the inspirational saying..
My little birdie was also painted with the accent color from my bathroom. Once the paint dried and covered with Tim Holtz Crackle paint in Rock Candy. This little birdie came from the Genuinely Jane Studios Bird Book. 
...and then he got a nest full of Prima Flowers and other embellishments.
...and waa-laa!
