Explore - Mixed Media Canvas

Hey guys
Welcome back to my blog.
Today I am sharing a new canvas that I made which is very special to me. I usually do not make dark canvas but this one is different......I had a bonsai orange tree with me since 15 years and this June...it died and I decided to make a canvas using parts of my tree. A lot of you might find it strange...but this tree was very special to me and I am going to surely miss it...a lot of memories are associated with it...it is hard to say goodbye to the things you love.

The canvas is inspired by moodboard at Mixed Media Place and More than words challenge blog. I have used Lindy's amazing sprays, squirts and shakers only shades of green and black. Here is a small clip of my project followed by few closeups.....
The top of my canvas might look teal but its actually deep bottle green and black...no matter how I click it...this is how it looks....though I must say Hockey Puck Black Magical Squirt is an amazing color...its black with so much magical mica with green undertones....love this color. 
I made my own door and lamp for this canvas as well as green foamiran flowers in various shades. To add more texture to the canvas, I used finnabair white crackle paste, paper texture paste and art stones. I created a lot of interest by adding moss, old laces, clay pieces and few chipboard pieces int he background.
I am super happy with the outcome and I hope you guys love it too....I am adding this canvas to the following blog challenges
