Canvas project

Here is a canvas project I started last week.  The size is 8x8.  I used Tim Holtz paper and floral paper I had laying in the scrap pile.  I then used Mod Podge and started gluing it all together.  I added a chipboard subway tile and painted it white but not too much paint so it looked worn and old.  I added some flowers and bling,  a little Prima shabby chic little flying guy, a metal key for the door and the door.  The door is from Michael's miniature section, it's a bit curved so I had to use several layers of pop dots to keep it on.  I also have a plastic twig at the bottom.  When I use little flowers I tend to cut the green stem made of metal off and then just glue the flowers where I want them.  I then take the green stem metal and wrap it around my tweezers and make it look like a vine.  You can see it closer in the 5th picture below by the door.
