Father's Day Mixed Media Canvas

Hi everyone, hope you've been able to play with your art this month and get those fingers messy. Today I have a project I created for my dad for this Father's Day. Inspired by Art Anthology's mood board this month I made a canvas utilizing the blues, burgandys, greys, and textures from the photo below.
I started with a small canvas and stenciled through it using AA's dimensional Shine paints. 
Then I cut up a pair of old jeans and saturated them with Sculpture Medium. The denim flowers were cut with Tattered Floral diecut and also saturated with Sculpture Medium. 

Red flowers were white and I painted them with the same paint used with the stencil and then added silver seed beads. 
And there you have it a gift keepsake for my daddy. Hope he likes it and that you enjoyed my canvas. For your pleasure I have included a Snapguide tutorial below for step x step process. 
Entering this piece in the following challenges:
