Canvas art romance

Just made an art picture for the wall
Canvas is 11 x 14 inches.
To make it look like I painted all of it ........
I first primed and painted the canvas pale aqua
Printed the picture full size.
Glued it neatly down, and proceeded to paint over it.
Some colors were re-touched. I added some gold.
I painted a bronze border all around
Then to incorporate the picture into the back ground I painted the branches and blossoms to match
The whole thing was varnished and let dry.
To further embellish I threaded an old pearl buckle onto satin ribbon and affixed that around the top.
Three vintage buttons were glued to the bottom corner and my art was done.
