Mixed media - Sewing project or canvas?


When I was growing up as a kid, my gram taught me how to sew. She started with cross stitching, moving onto other stitches as I improved. Today I went back to my childhood and spent my craft time in awesome memories of Gram and me. 

The canvas is wrapped in Aida cloth, which is woven and produces tiny holes that needles can easily go through. I didn't cross stitch on it. I first drew my mushrooms with pencil. After using acrylic paint to color my scene, I used a plain stitch to outline the fungi. 

After covering up the painted parts, I used glimmer mists to spray the sky blue and the earth green. I hot glued my two gnome buttons to finish off my project. So, sewing project or mixed media? I think I can safely say BOTH!
