My First Decorated Canvas

Morning everyone and hope you are all well.Today is the start of the second challenge at Crafting at the Weekend and the challenge is ATG and you have a month to link up so do hope you join us.The sponsors this month are Aurella,Nicecrane and Sunrise Crafts.I have been dying to decorate a canvas(10"x8") and bought one a few weeks ago and this week thought go for it lol.I covered the canvas in gesso,then made some modelling paste to use through a stencil and sequin waste,I then added die-cuts,dewdrops,corrugated cardboard,keyring chain,chipboard letters and flower shapes,odd flowers,lace,tiny key,washer,hessian,metal hook,broken locket,fabric butterfly,plastic earing-then covered the lot in gesso and added cosmic shimmer sprays,glitter,and Twinkling H2O's.Quite pleased with a first try but dying to have another go and next time will use less flat stuff and let colours dry before I try to add another!!!
