'Escape' canvas *with video

Hello scrappy friends!
Displaying MTW-201604.jpgI feel very honored to be a guest designer at More Than Words challenge blog!
Thank you so much for the invitation, I really appreciate it!

I created a canvas inspired by the lovely April moodboard and used the word 'escape' as the challenge required...

I got inspired not only by the beautiful colors of the moodboard, but also the flowers and the black and white tree and tried to incorporate all these elements on my project.
Displaying MTW-201604.jpg I therefor used flowers in many colors, a chipboard tree which I painted black and white, wooded sticks, as well a keyhole, out of which all the flowers 'Escape'...  I love how they peek through the rusty metal keyhole, as to represent the beauty of  nature escaping from an enclosed secret garden.

...and of course I made especially for MTW fans a video
on how I used many mixed media techniques on my canvas to make the background crackle and shimmer, layers upon layers of different colors and products to add depth and texture.

I hope you will enjoy it :)
