A Wall Hanging done in Mixed Media Style!

Hi friends,
 I am sharing with you a wall-hanging I have made in the mixed media style, which is also my inspiration post at the Crafter's Corner blog for our current challenge which is Anything goes!... I have to tell you all though this is my very first attempt doing a full fledge mixed media work and  I am not sure about the right's and wrongs  in it ..But I did have a lot of fun getting all inking and playing with the mist and various texture's... I have gone with the clustered look and tried to use different mediums to create my overall look !! ..So here's a look at my work :-                                
Another view :-
And a closer look at my handmade flower which shines with the shimmer from the Lindy's Mists :-          
   And a look at the clustering I have done ...Lol as if its not visible on the other full picture ..But I just have to share another picture ..So please bear with me :) 
I really had a lot of fun creating the background for this wall-hanging...First I  cut out two circles using the lid of a biscuit tin as my template and then I have colored the entire surface with white acrylic paint and then used texture white paste to make the base....Then,using the Mini Hexagons template from The Crafter's Workshop I have tried to create some textured background with Gesso ,then used the Lindy Mists 'Hottie Patottie' to color my background....Used some fabric lace from my stash and various small embellies like Buttons,Charms,Can opener tab,Soda bottle cover to create the entire look of my project and then again coated all of these with the texture white(Gesso)...Also,I have done some stamping using Staz on Black ink and used some die-cut flowers,butterflies and frames to complete the overall look.
