August Mood Board - Dusty Attic

Hi everyone,

This is my first attempt at a canvas hope you like it! Its for someone special and I hope she doesn't see it until her birthday!

Its a 30x40cm canvas I've used a 12 x 12" Kaisercraft "flutter' template, "Damask" 7 a Heidi Swapp "Stars, Hearts & Dots" template with homemade smooth texture paste (1/4 cup Baby powder, 1 tablespoon school craft glue, 1 tablespoon white craft paint, a little water, mix together) actually this recipe is from the lovely Gabrielle Pollacco's blog click here 

Using Versa color inks in various colours for the butterflies with Perfect Pearls to add shimmer, I added a little BoBunny Silver glitter paste to the corners and BoBunny Doubledot in Island Mist, Tutu & Coral in the 'waves' at the bottom of the canvas.

The Birds nest #2 and Vintage key are from Dusty Attic, I just love them, the bird cage is Tim Holtz, the words are Kaisercraft "True Romance"..

I'm pretty pleased with how this turned out, the photo isn't great as its raining hard here so the light is poor, so my apologises!

I would like to enter this into the
