Mixed Media Monday - Layers

Layers, lovely layers....gesso, paint, textured papers of every variety....it is so freeing to just play and see what results from the interplay of elements isn't it? That's exactly what I did with this canvas. I thought it had a dreamy, contemplative look to it when I was finished so I added elements accordingly. This is my entry for this week's Mixed Media Monday challenge.
