A Canvas for Sparkles

No, this isn't the third in my trilogy.  That is still pending...................................................Lol.


This is a canvas painted and stamped round the outside with words.  Then a layer made up of chiffon stitched to silver metal and melted.  With the odd blob of pearly glue.  The next layer was metal, angelina fibres and chiffon but that all went a bit Pete Tong (and very black!) for some reason so the old silver embossing powder came to the rescue.


Then some stampboard tiles stamped and etched a little bit.  Smaller stampboard tiles embellished with bits from my Mum's hoard of costume jewellery and Bob's your Uncle.  (Where on earth does that saying originate from?)
