Dream a little creativity canvas

I've been itching to try my hand at a little mixed media canvas. It was really fun to put it together. I got the similar idea in a magazine from the UK and the artist is Linda Elbourne. I hope she doesn't mind my take on her canvas. I'm calling mine Life-Create a Dream. I was thinking about all the things that pull you along in your life. Time, a compus, locks and keys, nature all crowns you in your journey in life. Make your dreams come true. Don't be afraid to venture out and enjoy the journey.

The canvas was painted with different colours of red in acrylics. Grungepaper was embossed with different styles and cut in 2" squares and coloured with Tim Holtz Distressed inks using Spiced Marmalade and Fired Brick. All embellishments came from stash.
