Decorated Canvas

Morning and we have a new "Something New" challenge at Daisy Chain--I decorated a canvas.The background was made with DIY ready made filler put on quite thickly and marked into strips,then wiped over with distress ink when dry.I added fibres and a new MDF frame/new foliage dies from Elizabeth Crafts/new hessian flowers from Prima which I won last month/a couple of flowers made with Joy dies,pin/ribbon/pearls and dewdrops from stash-everything was adhered with silicone glue gel for dimension.
