Life in Color Altered Mixed Media Canvas with Irit

Hello my Dear Crafty Friends!

Welcome to my new BoBunny post. Today I am going to share a pretty big altered Mixed Media canvas.  I am still waiting for my new BoBunny collections to come from the US and thanks to our very " fast" postal service it will take  a few more days or even weeks. So I decided to make a project with the Life in Color collection using BoBunny products which are just perfect for any Mixed Media project.
"Trust Your Journey" an Altered Mixed Media Canvas by Irit Shalom

The base was made over the flat 13.5*9.5'' canvas, but if you don't have any you  can use a thick chipboard piece as this is just a base for those chipboard rectangles glued over the canvas.
I used old recycled chipboard and just arranged them to fit the canvas size. Four brads were added in each and every  piece,  the very simple small craft store brads for the background. The larger, decorative ones are from BoBunny.
Then the background was first painted with black gesso, misted with bronze spray and waxes were added randomly.
Three BoBunny stencils were used with glitter paste mostly on the outer spots of the project with large clock added partly in the middle.
I used a couple of chipboard sets for the main spot in the middle as the background and the sentiment.
Die cuts were made from BoBunny Double Dot Cardstocks and painted to this vintage patina look with a combination of Pentart Paints.  BoBunny flowers were painted and misted too to achieve this metallic look (originally green).
 Now let me show the whole project again and then to show you some close-ups.

 This is the central spot from the front:

And here how it looks from the side:

 And my altered flowers :

 More close-ups to background:

 On this photo you can see the white stamped background and 3D powder mixed with gel paste and acrylic paint.
Also you can see the gold transfers, stenciled part and different mediums over the background.

I hope that you liked my Mixed Media project today.  Everything here is BoBunny or Pentart, except the recycled chipboard and small brads.  So you don't need to scroll a lot of shops, but to go to BoBunny shop and to get whatever you need to make the similar project.
