Mixed Media Mini Canvas

Hi everyone!
I am so happy to be part of the Mix It Up - Mixed media Altered Group at Color Me Creative.
The challenge this week is to use a book page in our creation. The final project can be anything: an ATC, a piece for a card, a journal page, a piece to hang on the wall, etc. The final project must always use different types of media in order to qualify. Challenges will run for 2 weeks and new challenges will be posted on Mondays. This Challenge will run from Feb 20th thru March 4th.
For my project I made a mini canvas (3in x 3in):
I used the book page as my background for the canvas and used water soluble oil pastels to paint circles and swirls, then used a black permanent marker to define figures (flower and leaves).
Before adding the paper to the canvas, I painted the borders with black acrylic paint.
Then added the page to the canvas using Mod Podge to seal the piece.
Once it was completely dried, I distressed the edges with Black Soot Distress Ink, and also used a stencil to add some details to the corners.
To finish this mini canvas I added black jewels to the center of the flower, created a border with sequins and added ribbon for dimension.
 Hope you liked it!!!
