Give Us A Hand

This is a canvas that I flipped and decorated the back of. Lots of Tim Holtz tissue tape to cover the frame, stuck and sealed with matte medium.
The inside is a piece of sticky backed canvas that I've transfered the image from some Prima paper onto. I've also frayed the edges, this was very theraputic, took me back to the 70's and my size 10 flared jeans ( I'd be happy to wear flares again if I could get into a 10, or 12,or... lol)The photo ribbon and little frame are holding images from Graphic 45 paper.
I'm entering this into the Lets Ink It Up - embelish it challenge, and
Simon Says Stamp and Show - hands.
Thanks very much for looking x
