Mixed Media Monday - Layers

It's my turn to host a challenge on Mixed Media Monday again, and I have to admit to being a little self indulgent in chosing "layers" as the challenge. At the moment I'm really enjoying painting using lots of layers and this painting is no exception. I've used lots of paint glazes, tissue paper, modelling paste, paper doily, printed images etc. to create this 20x25 cm or 8x10 in canvas.
