Zeus and Zoe - Friends Canvas

Hi Girls,

I am back with my 2nd project for the month using some of the gorgeous items from my Zeus and Zoe vintage kit.
For this project I decided to create a canvas to give to my sister for her upcoming birthday in January.  I started by altering my canvas background with gesso, glimmermist and a mesh stencil which I masked with some old gold Viva Inka Gold paste.  I then added some gorgeous vintage lace to the corners which was in my kit.

My kit also had some beautiful pp and an envelope from which I fussy cut the floral elements.  I layered the flowers with a crochet doily, some lace ribbon, vintage buttons and heart and key charms and  finished off with a few rubons, some paper roses and a glittered chipboard title.
