I watched hours and hours of mixed media canvas tutorials on YouTube - especially those from Arlene who is Butterfly Kisses on YouTube.
I have never done something so unsctructured but I LOVED using all these great little finds from my stash. Here is the finished piece and some detail shots below. It won't be possible for me to call out every detail... just keep looking - like an I Spy game :)
I finished it off with watered down Gesso and a variety of ink sprays to highlight different aspects of the canvas.
Here is a collection of paper flowers and metal pieces and a large 'chunk' of ribbon trim. Honestly, that is the one thing I won't do again. It didn't adhere as well as smaller pieces, though the effect of the Gesso in the roses is kind of coo.
