Something for the boys- altered dragon canvas

here's something for the boys!
well actually I have a feeling that a girl will probably buy this- as they seem to like dragons and skull stuff just as much these days- if not MORE!

I have had a bit of fun with 
some lovely double sided gold stitched braid, for that 'medieval' look
DCWV once upon a time dragon paper
12x12 inch box canvas
black jo sonjas paint to prime the canvas
and 3 resin dragons which i brushed with gold jo sonja's paint and added some of their opal glitter as well.
The ornate corner pieces were chipboard flourishes from 2crafty which i embossed with gold glitter embossing powder.
I thought the chunky rhinestones looked perfect for this look- i've had them for ages with not a clue to do with them and voila!

'Once-upon a Time'
