Ok, so here is the finished canvas.... after two more colour changes when I got home!
When I left the class I was a bit disappointed with the background colour. It was a pale pink-ish tone, which would have been ok, but it sorta clashed with the inked tags etc placed on the canvas. So.... when I got home (cos it was annoying me, and I couldn't WAIT to fix it somehow) I added a layer of Fired Brick Distress Ink (yup, RED)... then, in desperation, I added a layer of Spiced Marmalade Distress Ink (erm, yes, ORANGE).
And this is what I have ended up with:

So now I am happy enough with it to take it to work and hang it in my office. PHEW!
