Here is a canvas I created this week. I started out with blue paint and added water to as I didn't want the blue so dark on the entire background. I paid $2 for the canvas at ACMoore - coupons work wonders!!! I used Shimmerz Dazzelerz in blue with one of my templates. I had chipboard that I purchased at the Scrapbook Expo a few months ago and painted it white and added glossy accents to so that it's puffy. I wanted it white so that it stands out from all the blue. I have a little metal clock tied in and Prima black butterfly to match the black crystals. I cut her picture out into the size of the circle of the chipboard which I also added stickles to for more of a pop.
