Inspired by Kassa

Addicted to Art - Tim Holtz Butterfly Duo - Painted canvas
Hi everyone and welcome to my 300th post! Wow how did that happen and where does the time go?
I have been meaning to post these for a while - completely inspired by some recent creations of Kassa Hayselden - do check out her blog! 

First I played with a canvas - lots of distress paint colour in lines and splatters and then an upcycled picture frame. My butterflies are Tim Holtz butterfly duo - and I added sparkly mod podge to give a bit of sparkle to my dark images!
