Imagination Crafts USB 2 - Enchanted

Print off two sheets of the Enchanted rice paper. Using a paint brush wet around the edge of one sheet, and gently tear it away. Adhere to the centre of the canvas.

Dry brush using white gesso and dry. Dilute some of the purple paint to create a wash, and add colour to the butterflies and foliage.

I used a pencil to dry in the Butterfly wings to go over the edge of the rice paper. Splatter the remains of the dilute purple all over the canvas.

Next add shading around the outer edge of the rice paper to create shadow and an aged effect. Blend this outwards for a vintage feel. Repeat until you are happy with the depth of shade.

Dilute some gold wax and add to the Butterfly wings and cobweb.

Add gold wax splatters to the canvas to add subtle fairy lights.

Adhere the other three Butterflies from the second rice paper to a piece of waste plastic packaging using the fabric decoupage glue. Add a layer of diluted purple paint to the inner wings and let dry.

Once dry carefully cut out the wings and add a little gold wax around the edges before adhering them with foam pads to the canvas.

Happy Crafting.
