Game On - Beach Collage

Hello there, everyone!  It's Broni here today to show you my entry for this month's eP Get Altered challenge - Game On, that's hosted by the super talented Bonnie!  Did you see her awesome altered game board? Wow!

I chose to work on a smaller scale - one I'm a little more comfortable with.  And my Game On theme is Bingo!



I started with a 5 X 7 stretched canvas and chose some patterned papers that I thought would work well with a beachy theme.  This project is all based around some small Beach themed bingo cards that I had in my stash.


I glued the papers together making sure there was enough to cover the entire canvas, including the sides.  The edges were sponged with Distress Frayed Burlap.




Next I sponged on Tumbled Glass, Peacock Feathers, and Salty Ocean using my TCW Tiny Circles and Mini Confetti stencils and then some Frayed Burlap using my Mini Chevrons stencil.



I covered the entire back of the papers and the entire surface of the canvas with Claudine Hellmuth Studio Multi-Medium in Matte then adhered them together.  I used straight pins to help hold any double layers until the medium was dry.

Then I spritzed on some Dylusions Vibrant Turquoise ink spray.  When that was dry, I covered the entire surface with another coat of the Multi-Medium and added the die cut wave border while the medium was still a little wet.  Then I spritzed once with White Linen ink spray.



I colored some hemp with Frayed Burlap and added it to my #5 kraft tag  that had also been stenciled and had a starfish stamped on it.







I stamped the Dylusions sentiment from The Right Words on another #5 kraft tag and cut it out to be adhered progressively down the front of the canvas.






Then I added the wood bingo number (for the year) and date stamped the canvas at the bottom right.

I added some sequins randomly then spritzed the entire canvas with some Perfect Pearls pearl mist.  Here you can see some of the shimmer:



And here are the sweet little beachy bingo cards, with their edges sponged, up close:



And how about one more look at the entire canvas:



This was really a fun challenge!  I hope you'll play along too.  There's still plenty of time left to get your entries in!  Here's the link to the challenge: Get Altered challenge - Game On!

Thanks so much for stopping by today!
