Mixed media canvas

HI peeps
Well here's something I've been working on for a couple of days
 It took a while to do all the layering and getting the media to dry hee hee
 It then took me a day to sort the embellishment's ......... but I thoroughly enjoyed a bit of me time  
I was hoping to video it coming together but my camera is having a hissy fit and my phone wont play nice ... ah well maybe next time 

 Stuff I Used (this is as I used it)
30 x 40 canvas - one layer of gesso
Scraps of 12x12 stuck with watered down mod podge 
Imagination crafts stencils dots/damask/
Tim holtz large flourish - liquitex paste
Pieces of netting, lace, a crochet doily and scraps of tissue stuck with MP
Once dry I gave it two good coats of white acrylic
Then dry brushed with coloured (cream mixed with a touch of burnt umber and a dot of red)
Stenciled the words with paste
Lightly dry brushed white gesso over the raised areas

Made frames with various moulds -UTTE / P of Paris/ white mod podge stick
Various pics from collections added and glossy accents to seal in frame
Inka gold and white acrylic to shabby them 
Paper flowers coloured with tea stain and dipped in UTTE 
Various metal embellies from my stash 
Then I just layered them up and glued with pinflair 
I added a bit more shading with dry brush once it had all dried 

Phew all done 
Needless to say myself and my cave needed a scrub after hee hee 

Hope you like it, I had fun making it 
Be good
