Dies and inks - dreams on Canvas

This is influenced by Tim Hotlz as he recently showed in CC3 book how to use burlap panels with
Ink and tissue paper. So I wondered if it would work with some bare basics canvas.
I would like to enter this into 'A Vintage Journey Challenge ' to be found here :-

And Top Tip Tuesday - Material Girl , Top tip is to use Gloss medium to add tissue & ephemera to canvas.
To join in  the fun , click on TTT on the side bar.

Below are the goodies I used to create this & lots of lovely paints & inks

Below is the canvas covered art board.
I plastered on the studio gloss medium & added the Madame Payroud tissue.
More medium painted on top. When dry I used the two inks shown to smudge in a little colour over the tissue paper also adding the stamped saying on the right with more medium.

See the 'Saying in close up below'  with a 'Vinyls' butterfly
& some chit chat stickers 'time & 'to

I couldn't find my little metal clock parts so I dig out a much loved die die (see below) to cut out a couple of clock hands. Not sure you can still get this die , but if you see it, it's very useful for clocks & steampunk.

The final photo below was take in the garden on my table, looks nice on there don't you think ?
