Altered Embroidery Hoop

Hello friends!
Today I would like to share my altered embroidery hoop with you. I have had this idea for a while and finally got to bring it to life!

 I started doing "background" on raw cotton cloth with 2 coat of Finnabair Heavy white Gesso. 

metal used on this project

2nd step, texture paste (clear crackle) on corner side with crafters workshop 6x6 "Flower Fency" stencil. After drying , i just drop the pearl paints (olive green, light blue & violet) with water on corner side. Center portion i added some sand texture paste (finnabair). 
After all this, gluing metal charms, flowers , resin embellishments (prima product) on the hoop....and i did touch with gesso on top of all embellishments ,after drying all i used some dark shade lindy's spray for the finishing .....

Here are some close ups of my project
