Mixed Media Jewelry Findings/Metal/Paint/Photo Beaded Mosaic

The print butterfly and woman is from Moonlight Journey (Thank you Lynn).  I used jewelry findings, buttons, beads, gold sand, stick pin, key, wire, chain. The chippy butterfly's were purchased from Alda Steven's - The Flying Unicorn (Thank you Alda).  Scrapfx -Lacewings Flutterby.
I started by painting the canvas with textured paint and mixing it with gold paint.  I used my fingers - no brushes. I added drops of Espresso color wash.  When dry I added the print with hot glue.  I used Elmers glue and created a design for the micro mini beads to adhere to. 
I started adding beads, buttons and jewelry after the micro mini beads dried.
