Tutorial - Mixed Media canvas- Body Beautiful

Hello Everyone,
We are into second challenge of The Mirror Cracked.
The theme for October is The Body Beautiful.
And here is my DT inspiration for this challenge.

I've created mixed media canvas which is of 9"*4" in size.

I have step by step tutorial for this.

As ususal, I started with applying gesso to the surface. Next I adhered design papers and gauze. I know, I will be playing with blues and greens here, so I had chosen similar design paper for this. I applied clear gesso, and let it dry completely.

Next layer is with ink color sprays and water. I spritzed various shades in blue and greens from Lindy's inks and Dylusions. Moved the colors with little-bit spritzing water to get desired effect.

Next step was to add modeling paste through stencil.

With Prima soft gloss gel, I applied silver glitter randomly. I also attached  blue and green glass beads. I used my heat tool to dry it.

I applied Inka gold in blue and Jade on stenciled area. It gives nice shine and texture.

I've used Prima Resin Mannequin and her dress is made up of lace.

I've used border and doily die cuts here, which i colored with distress inks.

And here is final look of my canvas.
