Canvas - Sleeping Beauty

I went to a crop at The Scrapping Bug last night with some friends, old and new. I really didn't have anything to scrapbook, so decided to take along my art journal and a canvas. Earlier in the week I had been sketching, still working on my faces (see earlier posts for progression of my attempts). I did a sketch that I quite liked and could then picture it on a canvas....so decided to give it a try. Here is the result...acrylic and Pan Pastels for the face...the background layered with tissue and gauze for texture and then painted with acrylics and topped with "bling". I may add some more bling to this...but as usual it will need to sit on my fireplace mantel so that I can have a look at for a while until I decide what it needs.
