Working with new elements

Last year I played with shadowbox canvases and came up with some cool designs..this year I am using these canvases and adding a layer of collage covered with a layer of pouring medium to seal the paper and yarn in.  In the photo the pouring medium is not quite dry and is still milky...but you can see how it is going to give a real layered look. On the second I love the way the paper looks as is and will leave it "dry."  It was great fun to dig through my huge basket of yarns to find just the right ones!! Now, to decide...does it need the molding paste flow..or not??? We will see as I go along.....hard to plan when working with new materials.  Thus..the experiment....will it work?? or not?? If it does, you will see the results.
