Mixed Media Mini Canvas: Be You

Hi folks!

Hows the weekend looking for you? I look forward to getting started on some new supplies and experimenting :) Today, I'd like to share a mixed media mini canvas titled "Be You", this was my first try at working on a canvas and also at using crackle texture paste and I must say I love the cracked effect. I enjoyed it a lot and hope to make more canvases in the future :)

There are many layers in the canvas i.e. gesso, texture paste, layers of color added using sprays, inks and brush pens. Stencil work was done using a brick design stencil. For added texture, I'd added some small beads and gauze. The project is embellished with a stamped butterfly, gems, flowers, buds and tendrils. There is copper colored shine and shimmer on the project due to embossingSplashes of white gesso were added at the end. 

I really love the stamped sentiment that reads, "Don't let people discourage you. Just fluff your tutu and dance away." I think I will hang this canvas in my room to look at it and help me stay encouraged.
