My First Try At Mixed Media On Canvas

I've been watching videos on how to do mixed media
(didn't even know what it really meant)  and after seeing
a video by Angela Holt, I got down to making a picture
of my own - and this is the result.  I must
admit that I rather like it!  It was also fun to do.

I didn't have to put gesso on the canvas as it came
with that already done. On the background I put a few
layers of pattern paper and I used a few stamps and
Modge Podge.  Also used molding paste and stencils.
I loved using the ink sprays.  I  used embellishments
that I had to hand (I was lucky to have some Petaloo
flowers).  Luckily we have a few shops that sell
lace so that wasn't a big problem to find.  It has been
a problem finding ink sprays here, so I have to wait
for holidays abroad (not too often) to get some items.
I searched online for the profile, as I wanted a
Victorian look. As you may have guessed, I like
glitter too.
