Owl Canvas

Hi everyone this is my latest entry in the clarity challenge, anything goes.
To do this I used,
The clarity Journalist set
Clarity owls
Clarity Stencil
White Gesso
Grunge paste
 A variety of distress inks
Paper artsy chalk paints, prawn, jade, buff, and southern skies.
Printed book pages.
Canvas board.

Firstly I painted the board all over with white Gesso and left it to dry I then attached the book pages with gesso but didn't paint them completely.
Next I painted the board with various colours of chalk paint leaving the centre.
Stamped the owl image and images from the journaling set,.
Applied grunge paste through the stencil around the edges and left to dry.
Finally coloured the owls using chalk paints  and painted watered down chalk paints onto the grunge paste leaves.
Hope you like it, it was a real challenge never used a canvas before but really enjoyed it and I am happy with my first attempt.
