Sparkle & Bling Mixed Media Canvas

Several months ago, my boss came into work to bring in some inventory that had just arrived.  As she was pulling things out, she handed me a bag and said "Here, I bet you can do something with this".  It was a cake topper that a vendor had sent her (we don't carry any cake decorating supplies).  I held onto it for a while, but pretty much knew it was going to go on a mixed media piece - and, when I found the time, that's just what happened!

I had a ton of fun making this, and the friend I gave it to seemed to love it.

I did film a process video, while making this.
