Challenge entry "Stenciling"

Assalam-o-Alaikum everyone!!

I'm back with a post, after almost a year. It has been a roller coaster type of year. I was not well, and then my daughter happened :D *yayy* She's mashallah 4 months old now. So i'm getting some time for myself as well. Well, Sorta! haha. Although she's very sweet. Won't cry much. And sometimes she lets me play some android games while she plays with her fists. :)
Anyhoo, today's post is all about Artful Crafting's 1st Challenge. Which is about Stenciling. Now who doesn't love stenciling, Right?! So do I. I went ahead and create a mixed media wall hanging for this challenge.
I have used around 80% things bought from Artful Crafting.
Below are the photos of some of the material I have used in my project.

I forgot to mention the Sizzix flower die and fanciful flourish die I have used in the project, also bought from Artful Crafting.
After spending almost 4 hours, I ended up with this 12"x12" canvas.
 You can see the stencils used in the background. I went a lil crazy with them, hehe. After applying textured paste through these stencils, I colored my canvas with Deep Teal bloom sprayGold Foil spray and some distress inks(Black soot, vintage photo, salty ocean, walnut stain and Spiced  bought from Artful crafting. I randomly stamped my backgrounds with different background stamps. Tried heat embossing (the messy one :P) in the background too; both clear and black embossing.
 I used two chipboard pieces in my project. A chipboard frame and chipboard word "dream". I heat embossed the frame, and colored my word "Dream" with Gold foil spray. And then applied Glossy accents to that.
The flourish die you are seeing is my all time favorite. And I use this die in almost everything I create. Thanks to Shereen apa for making these things available for us. Seriously, She's a crafter fairy for all us crafters.
That's it for now. Hope you would like what I have created so far. Please leave your comment, and let me know how you like it. And dont forget to subscribeeeeee!!! :D :D :D

Have a great day.
Allah Hafiz.
