 This canvas project when completed measures 7 3/4" x 7 3/4" ( 20 cm x 20 cm.) The photo used is cut to 1 1/2 x 2"  ( 3.5 cm x 5 cm. ) Start this project by sealing the canvas by applying gesso to the canvas front and sides. When the gesso is dry, place the mask over the canvas and apply a thick layer of modeling paste. Remove the mask then put the canvas aside to dry and clean the mask and spatula. When dry, spray the canvas with the Lindy's stamp gang sprays randomly. Taking into account only the sides will show later. Taking the pink cardstock cut this to 6 1/2 x 6 1/2" ( 16 cm x 16 cm ). Then find two of the design paper squares used in the project. Fussy cut the sentiment and surrounding flowers of one of the squares. Distress the edges then adhere both the squares together with the double dots or foam tape to give height and to form one paper. Fussy cut the butterflies, shape the wings then adhere in place. From the remaining off cuts of the design paper and pink cardstock cut rectangles for the frame of the photo. Distress the design papers then adhere the design papers to the cardstock papers to form the frame. Using the cardboard cut it smaller than the papers as to be able to raise the papers from the canvas when adhered in place. Put a layer of cardboard between the cardstock and design paper to give depth and shadows where wanted. This will also allow you to tuck the embellishments between the layers. Adhere all together with the aid of the hot glue gun, double sided tape and wet glue. 

While putting this aside to dry, make the flowers, leaves, flower baskets and flower bouquets. Stamp the flowers in black ink on white cardstock using both the Classic Petunia stamp and die sets. Color and shape the flowers and leaves. Adhere all the embellishments in place in and around the layers and photo. When all is dry and secure apply the crystal lacquer and stickles. When this is dry, apply clear drying glue to the flower centers and where you will want the prills on the canvas. Place the canvas in the funnel tray then spoon the prills in place. Once dry tap the excess prills back into the funnel tray then the extra prills into it's container. Touch up the edges of the papers and flowers with the Lindy's stamp gang sprays with a water brush to finish the project.
