eP ~ "Laugh" ~ Canvas Wall Hanging for my Friend

Hello Everyone, it's Sue Lelli here today to show you a wall hanging I made for my friend to commemorate one of the funniest nights in my life!  Check out my blog if you want to "hear" the details!
 Here's a more up close version:
I used LOTS of Prima goodies on this one!

The Prima Baroque frame is made from resin and I painted it with several shades of gold.

The BG paper is from the Prima Stationer's Desk 6 x 6 paper pack.

All of the trinkets are Prima Mechanicals painted with Emperor's Gold Silks Acryllic paint.  LOVE the shine it adds!
My 6x6 paper wasn't wide enought so I cut it in two because I knew the frame would cover the empty space.
Can you see the texture the embossing paste adds?!!!
Here is where I added the metal trinkets and Prima wooden scalloped edge with Dina Wakley's gel medium which is a FAB adhesive!  Then I covered EVERYTHING with Dina Wakley's media gesso.
I wiped on TH Distress paints in antique linen and victorian velvet using a baby wipe to make the BG not so white.  I also applied victorian velvet distress paint through the Dina Wakley plastic canvas stencil.  It makes subtle little dots and adds some interest.  I think I use this stencil on EVERY project!

Here's where I started adding the Silks acryllic glaze.

I added the four bottle caps to elevate the 5x7 canvas with Pam's picture on it.
There is also some pretty lace glued to the bottom.
In case you forgot with all of the photos:
I hope you like it!

I love it. Nice way to cover a missing spot of paper. You can't even tell, it all bends so well together. Techniques are all great together!
