Mixed media canvas for Gina's Designs

Hi Everyone! This is my take on an inspirational  piece. You can find the inspiration piece here .  I started my project with a 10x10 canvas and used texture paste with Punchinella in different shapes for the background effect.
I used water soluble wax pastels in blues, pinks and yellows. Once that was dry I went
over the whole thing with some gesso. I used an old credit card to apply the gesso, and that allowed me to scrape some off and make thicker in other spots for more texture.

Then it was time to add stuff! I used the scissors from the Vintage Seamstress Shape Set and wings
from the Garden Fairies Set ( well...their wings :). They were painted with gesso and inked with Vintage Photo Distress Ink.

I hope you like my take on this project, it was a lot of fun to make! Thanks for taking a look. :)
