My life on canvas- with Scrapmatts

Hello my dear crafty friends! This is my very first post as Scrapmatts DT member.

For this post we were asked to make a kind of a " selfie" canvas.
I hope  that I am seen in a proper way on this project as usually I am on the other side of the camera.

 So as you can see I made it to fit the photo. Actually those are two photos from the same vacation, but I managed to destroy to lower one with mists. Then I realised that I don't have another good photo that was in a portrait way and every single piece of chipboards was already glued with gel medium over the canvas.
So when life gives you lemons, try to make a lemonade from them and try to correct your mistakes. The other similar photo was a landscape kind. I just trimmed it and made this 2 layers double photo and it seams to be unique and interesting after all.
My background was made with two Scrapmatts stencils: Circles  CT1001 and Alphabet  CT5017. I used texture paste (DecoArt) to make the whole background and let it dry.
As the next step I added paints and mists all over the canvas, using Plaid Mixed Media gel paints and their new mists. After it was dry I added some stamped frame with black permanent ink (Ranger) and Andy Skinner's stamps.
The next step was to paint the Retro squares chipboard, to cut it into two parts and to glue over the canvas.

Then I heat embossed  one window from Windows  04 CB5120 set and three pieces from Ornate frames 22 CB1220 and Ornate toppers 01 CB5137 sets  using clear embossing ink and opaque white embossing powder.  Those pieces were arranged on the top and  on the bottom of my photo.

As the next step I painted the Flowers 12 CB1220 and added them over the window chipboard.
I used two pieces for sentiments, both from Scrap Words 21 CB6103 set and they coordinate together to make the statement of Life being a journey and adventure that just begins.

As my last touch I added a bunch of 3d stickers and a few drops of blue mist. Yes, the mist that ruined my lower photo.
I really hope  that you like my canvas as much as I do, but it goes to Scrapmatts shop, not to my craft room wall.
