Summer Butterflies -- mixed media canvas

I love seeing all the mixed media and journaling projects that have been so popular lately. This gal was created using a Unity stamp from Christy  Tomlinson,  along with Hero Arts Music Background and  Friends Definition.
The canvas is small and I decided to just stamp half  of this gal for a different look.  Ranger White enamel accents came in handy for a bit of texture and Claudine Hellmuth's matt medium is a must have for applying  paper to your canvas.
My neighbour decorates weddings and is always sending my hubby home with Flowers. I love the layers in this soft pink bloom. Just amazing!

I've also been doing a bit of late night baking. Which also means late night eating too. Yikes!
My Hubby pulled a name for the K&Co Stickers from my last post "mini giveaway"
Yay Leslee!!  I will contact you for your snail mail details :)
Tomorrow's Friday and a long weekend! Hope it is a good one for you :)
