Reality v. Imagination Canvas

Today I am sharing a 5" x 7" canvas I worked on yesterday.  I used tons of metals from Flying Unicorn and Finnabair (Prima).  The quote "Reality has limits - imagination is boundless."  Unfortunately, I don't know to whom the credit of the quote should go - I've just seen it several times without an author.  I added some texture, stamping and a few little faux gems.  Thanks for taking a peek.

Canvas: 5x7 canvas board by Art Alternatives
Paper:  Prima's Timeless Memories
Metals:  The Flying Unicorn Country Garden metals;  Prima Finnabair's Vintage Trinkets; Webster's Pages Cameo
Flowers: Prima Bristol Blooms Teal; Prima Coffee Break Flowers
Ink:  Inka-Gold Gold; Tim Holtz Vintage Photo (around edges of canvas); Black Staz-On for stamping
Chipboard:  Sentiment chipboard - Sa Crafters
Mediums:  Art Basics Heavy White Gesso; Art Basics Soft Matte Gel; Art Extravagance Copper Crackle Paste
Miscellaneous:  Blue faux gems; Gold faux gem center of cluster; Tim Holtz Bubbles Stencil

Thanks for taking a peek!
