Mixed Media Shadow Box Canvas with DecoArt

Two posts in one day!! I just had to share with you this awesome shadowbox picture I made with the backside of a 11x14 canvas and DecoArt products.
 
I started the beginning of the canvas by using a brick wall stencil and DecoArt Modeling Paste. Allow it to dry really well.  Then apply two coats of DA Gesso. Allow to dry overnight.,
 
Then I used DA Misters.  Yellow first.  Then I needed brown.  They don't have a brown-so I made one!!  That's right-I poured some Orange out of the bottle and added some Primary Cyan and Red -shook the bottle up well and viola' I had brown!!
 
The misters have a lot of pigment in them-so keep a water bottle handy to spray them immediately so they'll run and spread.  I kept layering until I achieved the color I wanted.
Then I decided I'd add some Metallic Lustre to the inside. Lavish Green, Iced Espresso & Cosmic Blue.  Talk about shimmer!!
 I used the Cosmic Blue, Majestic Purple and Champagne Ice to the butterflies (after coating them with gesso) Talk about beautiful!!!


 Added some Designer paper from KaiserCraft, mulberry flowers from Wild Orchid Flowers, some lace and twill from my stash.  This photo really does do it justice!!  It's gorgeous!!
