Canvas Wall Hanging

I made this today for a creative team contest entry.  My chances of getting on are slim to none,  but it was a great excuse to work on this project, which I've been wanting to do for some time now.  The little 4x4 canvases are painted black-ish with acrylic, then I added photos I had colored in PSE8 (sepia-ish).  I put them on top of some decorative fish netting, and attached to 12x24 canvas (painted in cream).  The words are all cut with SCAL/black vinyl and were a PAIN to put on the canvas.  The little charms were from the jewelry section of Micheals - I was going to use real starfish, but then when push came to shove, I just couldn't stomach buying something dead for my wall.....I'm such a wimp.  Wish me luck!  Thanks for looking :)

I think it's fabulous! I love the textures and dimension that you gave to it...I need to do the same with my pictures (they are really blah). Thanks for the inspiration!
