Butterfly Squad creative team inspiration: Melina
Hello fellow Butterflies!
It´s Melina here today with a mixed media canvas to share.
This was one of those projects that have been in my head for a while and suddenly needed to come out.
I´m an impatient crafter and usually I just get to it, get it done and move on. This one was a bit different and I struggled a bit to actually achieve what I had in my head. For some reason my feelings for the piece didn´t match that picture...
The last piece of the puzzle fell into the right place after some advice from a very talented butterfly named France, and leaving it to the next day to be able to look at it with new eyes.
Here are a few detail photos of the yummy stamps and texture, and I hope that you will enjoy the process video I made for you. It´s quite long, but there are so many layers on this one I didn´t want to leave any steps out.
Thank you so much for stopping by today!
