- Painting and collage: Paint the sides of the canvas brown and the top 11⁄2" lilac. Let dry. Cut out the art pieces and use the paintbrush to apply glue to the back. Glue the blue patterned strip along the bottom edge of the canvas. Stamp the swirl border on the bottom edge of the bird cut-out and glue it in the center, overlapping the blue strip.
- Tear a 2"x6" tan catalog paper and ink the torn edge. Glue on the left, overlapping the bird and the blue strip. Glue the “Ledger” cut-out on the lower right corner. Tear the left edge of the butterflies cut-out, ink it brown and glue above the ledger. Glue the large butterfly and word cut-outs as shown. Cut out 4 purple flowers and glue over the paper seams.
- Seal: Mix even amounts of Tacky Glue and water to make a sealant. Brush over the canvas to keep the papers from peeling off. Let dry thoroughly before the next step or the stamp may stick to the surface. When sealing the canvas, you will need to apply ONLY a small amount. Too much sealer will take longer to dry and may warp the frame.
- Stamping: Stamp the swirl along the lower left edge with the swirl off the edge and the straight edge as a flower stem. To keep the canvas from bending under the pressure when you stamp across the top, apply ink to the swirl stamp and place face up on a flat work surface. Then place the top edge of the front aligned with the straight edge of the stamp and press from the back of the canvas and wood frame to insure an even image.
- Embellishing: Fold the brown fringe in half and wrap around the bottom of the canvas then glue the fiber ends on the back. Cut an 8" length of ribbon and glue behind the top of the frame for a hanger. Glue the flower on the top of the stamped stem and Zot™ a ribbon bow below.
