Create Your Destiny Without Fear @ STAMPlorations

Hi everyone! Wishing you a blessed and wonderful 2016 with good health and prosperity. I started the new year preparing for the new school term commencing today. That's's the return of school where I live while other states in Malaysia starts tomorrow. The children and I were away vacationing for five weeks, hence my silence from blog land. Holidays over and play time done so it's back to higher thinking level to my children and behind them is their mother who will screw them up from time to time {chuckle}.
 Today I am back with fresh mind but unfortunately the flu bug came from nowhere and hit me so bad. Breathing is difficult when one nostril is runny and blocked. I hope to feel better soon.

On a cheerful note, here's bringing you my newest artwork to kick start the year designed for STAMPlorations.
Click here and have a see at the wonderful mixed media projects by my fellow teammates.

This is my less is more canvas artwork sandwich with paper strips, gesso and and modeling paste for simple texture.
I created a homemade canvas from chipboard and added layers of paper strips. Then gesso-ed the surface with two coats and let dry naturally. I used acrylic paints and blended four to five colors for the background and let dry once again.
 I used modeling paste through Tribal Triangles ARTplorations stencil to create patterns randomly and highlighting them with some coordinated colors. I also used STAMPlorations stamp set BOLD SENTIMENTS - Create for the sentiment. 
Next I stamped three butterflies namely Blossom Like A Butterfly on cardstock, cut them out, colored them with different shades of color pencils and adhered them on the canvas. 
Are you all set for 2016 challenges?
