How vintage is this?????

Happy Friday all....

Has been a hard week and felt the need to splash some paint and stuff so off to my room I went and came up with a vintage canvas.  I actually quite like the look of this.


dark brown acrylic
Metal brooch
mulberry flowers and buds
silver leaves that had been forgotton about and getting dusty lol
an old earring for top left corner (disks and sequins)
lace cut from doily
plaster frame and tiny cupid plaque I cast
photo from magic moonlight
distress ink for photo and splash of water
metal butterflies
diamante look trim
metallic paints and inka gold

I think that is all.  I threw it all into mixing bowl shook it about, scooped up all that I dropped on floor.  Let it stand for 10 mins - poured over the canvas, smoothed the edges with pallet knife and voila!

Here's the finished product

Hugz and love to all
