A Happy Accident

Hi Everyone
Today sees the start of a few days off work for my, Yippee!!! So what better thing to start my break off with than a bit of painty playing. My final make isn't at all what I had started off making, but I did it wrong so had to turn it into something else. I will be having another go at what it should have been lol. So quite unexpectedly I have an 8" x 8" canvas board for you, which I mounted my piece on.

I have used another of the fabulous new stencils from Stencil Girl this one is Talaya, Goddess of Rain. I have stenciled her over my background using Dylusions black paint (Love those paints).
My background was created firstly with Brushos and then once dry I moved the colour around with clear gesso, which also seals the Brushos. I have also done this to several Brusho backgrounds I had that I didn't like for future projects.
I then randomly stamped over it all with various Carabelle Studio Stamps.
Finally I stenciled on the words with Dylusions paints using another Stencil Girl Stencil - Dube.

You can see the stamping on the background better here.
I am also entering this into this months challenge at Stamps and Stencils who have an Anything Goes month.
Hope you like it and thanks for stopping by
