Mixed Media Art - Shaker

Hello everyone and happy Thursday!!

I have an announcement!
I am excited to announce that i am a Lavinia World DT
It’s time for a new Lavinia World Challenge featuring Lavinia stamps.
          We are a bi-weekly Challenge Blog and the theme will be Anything Goes using stamps
(either rubber or clear, but no digi stamps). 
                               Details are found under the "rules" tab on the Challenge Blog.

 Here is my inspiration for you!

I have a step-by-step photo tutorial for you:
I have a wooden frame canvas i purchased at a Charity shop (Escape).
Then i stamped the Lavinia stamp set - Tree Scene 
(using VersaFine Clair - Nocturne and Morning Mist)
I adhered the stamped paper to the top of the wooden canvas with Mod Podge.
Then i added another layer of Mod Podge and sprinkled some Stampendous Shaved Ice on top.
Next i printed off another sheet of We Are 3 Digital Paper - Watercolor Batik and cut out a circle for the inside of the Tim Holtz pocket watch.  
I adhered the paper circle with tacky glue to the pocket watch base.  
I added Mod Podge to the top of the paper and sprinkled it with Stampendous - Shaved Ice.
I then stamped one of the Lavinia Fairy Forager's to the top of the glass of the pocket watch
using Stazon Pigment - Piano Black.
I die cut Tonic Studios - Wings & Things Damselfly & Dixie Wings (twice from cereal box)
I glued those together and cut them apart a the base to make two separate wings.
I painted the wings with black gesso and waxed them with Art Alchemy Turquoise Satin and Firebird.
I glued the wings on the top of the wooden canvas positioning them so they'd be underneath the pocket watch with Mod Podge Dimensional glue.
I also painted the sides of the pocket watch with black gesso and waxed it using the same waxes.
I glued just the back of the pocket watch (base) on top of the wings.
I added a few sequins to the base of the pocket watch and then attach the top of the pocket watch.
Now you have a shaker canvas mixed media art you can set on a shelf or hand up!
