UPDATE - Stenciling is done

Big Sigh.....
I have finished the painting(stenciling).

Tomorrow, "I hope", I want to begin antiquing and glazing, all in one process.
But first, I need to experiment on a piece of remnant canvas 
to see just how that will work.  
For this step I'm thinking about using Modge Podge tinted with???
Not sure of color but it may be burnt umber or burnt sienna.
That is why I say "I hope".

Here are some close ups of design along the sides. 
Maybe I am not finished painting, cause I'd really like to
do some subtle marbleizing in those lighter side areas.  
Just thinking...  
 Whatever I do, 
the final step will be to glue the 1/2" hems on all four sides.
Then I can say


 Did you know that the 'Pineapple' is a symbol for Hospitality/Welcome?
