Artastic Canvas

The challenge at Artastic is this

I've made this canvas using multi layering of mixed media items.
First I stamped with Kaiser "moments" stamp.
Next I've used rub-ons with words such as love ,promise, moment, happiness in quotes.
The background was painted with white gesso then I used gesso through a clock mask to create the raised texture.
Next I misted with Tattered Angels turquoise mist.
The Memory Maze chipboard cogs were also misted then placed randomly on the canvas.
The white gauze was placed in a criss cross pattern going both vertically and horizontally.
On the right hand side I've used all that remained from my Prima metallic.They were glued to the canvas.
After measuring where the photo was to go, I added blue foil then my photo and a flair button from Shopevalicious.
The canvas sticker and inked bird are then added.
I keep humming "If I could turn back time" and I don't know why, except that I would dearly love to visit Venice again one day.
Here are some close ups
and here is the complete canvas.
