PaperArtsy canvas

I've seen a couple of crafty challenges this month related to crafting styles and so I thought it would be a good time to share this canvas that I have been working on.
Anyone who has looked at my decluttering or WOYWW posts will know that I don't shy away from mess and so, unsurprisingly I am quite at home with inks, paints, mists and pastes!  If I have some free time with a bit of work top cleared, then I like to experiment and let my creativity out.  (If there's no worktop clear than I am just as happy getting down to some serious colouring with stamped images, but that's another story.) 
I've used so much (too much?) on this canvas that I don't think I could possibly list all of the supplies.  There is some 7 Gypsies tissue with keys on at the bottom somewhere under many layers of Claudine Hellmuth paint.  All the stamps are from PaperArtsy.  Some are stamped directly onto the canvas and others, like the text and the clock/sun, are stamped onto plain tissue paper first and then glued on.  The houses are stamped onto GCD Studios papers and then paper pieced together.
There is some modelling paste for texture. The clouds were made by punching the shapes from card using a Fiskars punch and then using the negative that was left as a stencil.  There's also a bit of stencilling through a Crafters Workshop chicken wire stencil, to ring the changes from getting the sequin waste out all the time.
A bit of tissue tape to finish everything off, you have to, don't you?  Well I can't help myself and so I did.
