Altered Canvas "Dream"

Hi! everyone. Just finished an mixed media altered canvas and wanted to share. I used a 6x6 canvas. My image is a collage image from Gecko Galz. Here it is

First I used gesso to prime my canvas. Then I used texture paste and a stencil by Heidie Swapp.To achieve the striations I used a plastic knife. Next I stamped randomly with a script stamp. After that I used the colors in the image to spray my background with Lindy Stamp Gang "Nantucket Pearls".  I also sprayed the white flowers I got at Michael's with "Nantucket Pearls".  I used Salt Water Taffy, Cape Cod Coral and Sea Grass Green. The colors matched perfectly. I then used a purple metallic Gelato to deepen the color.

As you see I used a lot of embellishments, lace, punched border,  pearls, buttons, butterflies, metal findings, glitter and banners.  The sentiment Dream was from my stash. It seemed to express the mood of the image. Here is a close up.

Hope you like it. It was lots of fun to make.
 Leave me a comment and tell me what you think or if you have any questions about the products I used. 
Thanks for looking and have a great evening.

I am entering this into two challenges:
