Decided to deepen the color of the canvas by making a wash of copper Perfect Pearls and water and then brushed this wash over the canvas. Used the extra wash to color another mini canvas for a future project.
Used metal russet Lumiere paint to color the edges and parts of a brocade polymer clay butterfly I made last spring, most of the cut skeleton leaf and some letter beads.
Sewed the beads onto the brocade butterfly to look like the body and spell out "DREAM". Adhered the wings, a flourish and the image to the canvas with medium gel mat. Difficult to see in this photo, but I colored the hair in the image with a mixture of medium gel mat and copper Perfect Pearls. The flourish was colored with copper Perfect Pearls and a Copper leafing pen.
