End of summer canvas (SSSC)

The theme on SSSC is anything goes so I'm entering this canvas for that.
Last night I saw a splendid photo that my SIL took of the ceiling of Winchester cathedral and she kindly let me pinch a copy to do an image transfer, now you might just spot in under the layers of paint and ink I got a little carried away once I got started ;-)
Inkjet printed image
Mat gel medium
Acrylic paints white, green & a tiny touch of brown
Vintage photo distress ink pad
Paperartsy Hot Pick 1006 script stamp
K&Co - Flora & Fauna Die-cuts
Martha Stewart stencil
Accent beads

I took this photo late this afternoon outside and the colours are looking a bit brighter than they do now! Normally the sun bleaches the colour a bit, very odd. lol

I'm back to work tomorrow morning after having the summer holidays off but I'm looking forward to a great weekend, hope you all do too!
