Mix media canvas

Hi all ! Today i bring to u a mix media canvas using sizzix die cuts !! 
For me painting often meant Oils or watercolors , brushes , paper / canvas ....
But when i stumbled upon some videos on you tube regarding "Mix Media Canvas "
I was just more than interested ! Believe me it was a feast creating this one !
It took me 2 days to make it. 
Mainly coz i used Oil colors for the sky (it takes a while to dry) 
Here is what i made (Caution - Picture heavy post !)

Here are some painting supplies i used for this project.
Believe me when working with Oil colors 
painting knifes are the best to spread around the color
I first Modge podged my blank canvas , then i stuck a paper as shown 
and modge podged it all over again. (i deliberately left the paper puckered)

 The fence is a Sizzix Bigz Die - Fence 
on chipboard and colored using acrylic colors   
and then i used some crackle medium on top
I first colored the lower part of the canvas with "Pearl green" acrylic color.
I used only one coat over the paper as i wanted it to be seen from underneath. 
Then i used the crafting knifes to spread the blue color all over the top 
Since this was Oil color - it took about 24 hrs to dry completely. 
After it was dry i modge podged it.
* never forget to color the edges* 
And a splash of yellow with the smaller knife for the lamp to glow !
here is how it looks 
The lamp is again acrylic colored  its a
The birds are my fav part ! they are colored using pro markers and modge podged onto the canvas. 

Some stamping to fill in the gaps !
