Mixed Media Monday - Tell Me a Story

I'm hosting the challenge on Mixed Media Monday again this week, I need more volunteers before everyone gets thoroughly sick of me, grin! I chose the theme of "tell me a story" as the challenge and then created this canvas as an example. Maybe I should do it the other way around in future because I don't think this piece really tells a story, Instead makes some rather soap opera type suggestions and leaves it up to everyone's imagination. It was fun to do anyway! The canvas is 8 x 10 inches or 20 x 25 cms and is done with acrylics, tissue paper for texture, found text (from magazines) and images printed from my computer. I've also used foam stamps, stencils and sequin waste.
