For the background I used an old book page and some torn music paper and painted it with Granny Smith and Teresa Green Fresco paints.
I added some circles stamped in chalk paint with a bottle top.
This is watercolour card stock with PaperArtsy infusions : In the Navy and the middle panel was an experiment with a few greens, The Sage, Emerald Isle and Slime I think. I didn't use that one. I die cut some Tim Holtz wildflowers from the larger panel and used the TH butterfly punch.
At this stage I thought the canvas needed a bit of stamping so I added some text with leaf green archival ink and the bubbles in cornflower blue. Sticking to the blues and greens for the stamping I was happy with the background. I added the die cut flowers and butterflies plus a TH quote chip colour tinted with the infusions.
Here is a close up so you can see the book text still shows through the paint although they were opaques, I watered them down a little.
