Soul of a Butterfly- Prima's Bloom Collection Canvas

I created this canvas for Prima Summer Shows, using one of the new Bloom Stencils designed my Jamie Dougherty. 

The stencil's name is Sharon but she might as well be called Keren. I really Identified with this woman. I felt connected to her soul. I know it sounds funny but somehow this woman has the soul of a butterfly and I could see myself flying free like her.

I used a combination of Color Bloom Sprays and Molotow Acrilyc paint markers to give her life. I then added some texture on the sides to bring it all together.

Prima Products:
980238- 12x12 Bloom Stencil- Sharon
573942- Color Bloom Glistening waves
573836- Color Bloom Tea Stain
565923- mini sachet plum
575908- 6x6 Stencil basket weave
          577612-  Manhattan Times square
             577520- Melbourne Harbour
           961404 - Finnabair Art Basics Light paste
