Like A Butterfly Canvas Collage


It’s time for another step out showing how I created one of my mini canvas collages!

I started out with a primed 4×4 hardboard panel:

Collage on a bunch of vintage ephemera for a base:

Add some stenciling with acrylic paint:

Then collage on some tissue paper, pattern tissue and mulberry paper:

Outline title in gel pen and glue on butterfly:

Using charcoal pencil, outline the butterfly image:

Splatter acrylic inks all over:

Edge the whole piece with charcoal pencil and finish it off with a coat of gel medium to seal it!

collage on 4″x4″ hardboard panel

using ephemera, book text, security envelopes, sheet music, postage stamps, stencils, liquitex inks, acrylic paints, tissue paper, pattern tissue, mulberry paper, die cut butterfly, distress inks, charcoal pencil, solvent ink pad, rubber stamp, pitt pen, uniball signo pen, gel medium.

This item is available for purchase via my etsy shop!
