Here is my 16X20 canvas I made for the hop using the Frog Dog Studio January mixed media kit.

I mod podged the tissue paper on the canvas, then added lots of gesso, stamping (using stamps in the kit) and mixed the red and blue Liquitex ink with modeling paste and applied through a few different stencils.  I used the pages of the GJS telephone booth book as mini canvases for my close-pin people, who are wearing dresses made out of the kit's telephone embellishments.  Here are some close ups:
