Collage on canvas - "Summer Garden"

Here is the latest offering ! (This is only the second collage I have done so as always your comments would be appreciated.)
It is part painted, there is hand made paper, stamping, ribbon, gems etc. The gold sun is made by stamping in black ink into a pool of hot encaustic wax and cutting it out. The pink flower petals are made of wood.

Fat Pages

Found these Aqua Glass butterfly outline stickers amongst the stash , it prompted a bit of a butterfly fest!

Butterfly Cards

I do love butterflies, maybe you can tell!
These 2 cards are simple enough - the pinky/red paper is from PM "Inspirations"which has been pleated then a butterfly, chipboard letters & some clear gems added.

The blue paper is DCVW with a ruffled blue organza ribbon & stamped greeting. The butterfly is an Aqua Glass outline onto acetate, glittered with ultrafine art glitter & wire "tails" added.

Altered tin

Started with a plain tin which had had some tags in . Stamped the top with swirls (Studio G) which was then heat embossed with clear powder, then the whole lid covered in embossing powder( whilst it was still hot) and reheated. It has bubbled a little bit - I think I over heated it ! Added some eyelets and crystal gems around the sides and some pretty blue ribbon around the edge of the lid. Because of the eyelet holes I think this would be good for pot pourri.
