Art on Canvas

Well I tried my best to get a good likeness of this canvas but couldn't quite get the right colors to come thru. It's very dark and not very vibrant. And yet the blue and purples can be seen enough to be appreciated but not as obvious as in the photo.
 Painted canvas, and brushes, splattered specks of purple, blue and white in varying thick blobs and thin strokes. Gold powder.
Some items used are half a butterfly made of Tim Holtz grunge board, a pearl dangler and hand made flower to represent the body. Touched with perfect pearls powder.
ART  is premade chipboard and painted
Preassembled Frame painted
Hand rolled, die cut (spellbinders) flowers and leaves in purple cardstock. Touched with gold, or blue perfect pearls powder.
Tim Holtz 'live in the moment' metal tag.
All held together with the hot glue gun. Sure hope it holds!
I think I'll call it: Beauty Beneath the Darkness.
