Trinkets and Treasures ATC Canvas - The Dusty Attic

Hi everyone!  This month's ATC theme at The Dusty Attic is Trinkets and Treasures, and for me this  was open to a plethora of ideas!  So far the ATC's everyone have created are just so gorgeous!  I decided to make an iddy reverse canvas that I had into an ATC, since it was ATC sized!    

I love trinkets and my favourite trinkets are my butterflies, so I have used these sweet Dusty Mini Butterflies #2 to represent them.  

I've popped some plain ones into a little bottle and as they've escaped they've been brought to colour!  Each was painted with Dusty in Colour acrylic paints {I've used Dusty Pink, Lavender Blush and Faded Denim} and then they were touched with some Viva InkaGold Rub in Platinum to highlight them.

The canvas had some texture paste added in random areas to add a little texture and then was sprayed with Smooch Spritz as well as Lindy's Stamp Gang Starburst Stains to create a rainbow of colour.  To pick up and highlight the textures it was touched with some Viva InkaGold Rub.  Once all the butterflies, jar, flowers and title was set the inside was coated in a thick layer of Dusty in Colour Clear Gloss Varnish and set aside for a few days to dry.  The Varnish really makes the colours pop!

So even though this wouldn't fit into an ATC sleeve... I do hope you like my Trinkets and Treasures inspiration!  I've titled it 'My Trinkets become my Treasures" because they do... once I've used them in my projects, layouts, cards etc... I've created a little treasure with them.
