"Memories which last Forever" - Mixed Media Canvas | Tutorial

Hello everyone
I have a new mixed media canvas for you all today which is inspired by my childhood memories. This canvas is my DT inspiration project for ItsyBitsy and you can visit the blog by clicking HERE. You can see a full list of supplies used along with more pictures there.
As a child, month of May was the time where the schools were shut down and all the books were back in the cupboards. All I did was eat mangoes and play in my garden which was filled with fluttering butterflies and fragrant flowers. So gardens are nostalgia for me..... and I have tried to show that in my canvas.
The alphabet background I used to show that books have now taken a backseat and its time to play with butterflies in my garden and so the flowers are the focal elements on my canvas. I have added a lot of gold elements and empty frames to my canvas as gold for me depicts old or vintage.....and thus I tried to represent "Capturing old memories". The color inspiration of yellow and green comes from the King of Fruits - Alphonso Mangoes. So this canvas for me is my childhood memories of May vacation. Here are a few closeups of my canvas.
 


I have spoken enough....its time for the tutorial. I have a video tutorial for you all from the start to end....which I have sped up a little. I encourage you all to watch it if you want to know how I made this canvas.

I am putting my project up for the following blog challenges:-
  1. More Than words - May Challenge- Memories and Frame. 
  2. More mixed Media Challenge - Anything goes optional Pink
  3. Scrap and Craft - May Challenge - Use 3 chipboards - I have used 1 background chipboard piece, 1 chevron chipboard piece, 2 corner chipboard pieces and a chipboard sentiment.
