Mixed media

Hi, thought id post photo of my latest mixed media project , this is actually a square canvas although it doesnt look so in the photo. I started with a blank 9 x9 canvas and coated it with  a shaving foam and mixed ink layer. I then sprayed a few inks on top . The flowers are made from  parchment paper and i used the Tina Cox "groovi plate" after cutting them out i coloured the from behind and then glued them together adding a coloured bead in the centre. I also ran a line of beads on either side and sprinkled some around the board.
Id like to enter this in the mixed media challenge at Creative Artiste
