Work in Progress Dresser

I have been working on this dresser for about a week. It has been raining so I had to keep stopping! I am almost done. I can't decide wether to do a little sanding to distress it or to stain it with a glaze? If anyone has a suggestion let me know! I haven't had a lot of practice with painting furniture but I think it is looking alright!
Thanks for looking!!!

TRAVELER Mixed media Painting

Here is another painting I have done using a vintage atlas page for the dress. I painted with acrylics and chalk. It is on a 12 x 16 in. canvas panel. I photoshopped the next pic and changed the colors. I kinda like it so colorful!

Here are a few more ATC's I made with the new watercolor paper I bought. It works ok but the water doesn't soak in at all! I couldn't blend colors very well without lifting color off. I guess I will have to find some different paper.
These are all listed on Ebay. The link is in my sidebar. 
Thanks for looking!
