Wanted to share with you this altered canvas
that I created for a friend.
Many techniques went into this canvas and
it actually took me several days to do it.
I started out with a smaller canvas and
had to redo it on the larger size.
Here is a list of the products I used:
Red 25mm Open Roses # FM-00293
Ivory 10mm Open Roses # FM-00064
Light Ivory Wild Curly Roses # FM-00410
Lace # LA-00011
Long John's Silver
Crows Nest Copper
Van Dyke Sepia Walnut
Buccaneer Bay Blue
Treasure Island Aqua
Dark Chocolate Truffle
Broken China Distress Ink
Prima 4x6 Hex Net (Chicken wire)
Tim Holtz Salvage Stickers
Graphic 45 Steampunk Debutant
Tim Holtz Mini Gears Set
"What I did"....
Canvas is approx. 14x12 in size (its a big one)
I sprayed the entire canvas with the listed LSG and
dried between layers. I used the LSG "Noodle Brush" to
put brush strokes in the LSG on the canvas to add a little texture. Once it was all dried, I stamped it with the Prima Hex Net stamp using Brown Stazon ink. I then rubbed my Broken China Distress Ink pad
directly onto the canvas and along the edges. I then rubbed a small amount of Patina Rub-n-Buff around the edges and in small areas on the front of the canvas. I fussy cut the image from the G45 paper
and added Glossy accents to her lips, earring and clock. I added some Diamond Glaze to the wings and the bird. I like Diamond Glaze for covering large areas because it does come out faster and does the same thing as Glossy Accents. I painted the ivory 10mm roses with red metallic paint. When they were dry I rubbed them with a little bit of Walnut Stain distress ink and some LSG Dark Chocolate Truffle Stain. The gears were cut from the die out of chipboard and I added 3 layers of Pewter embossing powder to make them "metal" and then rubbed with some finger rubbings to alter the color a bit. I distressed the 25mm Red Roses and the 40mm Wild Curly Roses with Walnut Stain Distress Ink. After all of the pieces were added, I added the lace trim at the bottom from WOC, that I colored with Antique Linen Distress Stain to make it more of a Vintage Lace. Then I added the black beaded trim at the top as well as the beaded trim down the sides. When everything was added I "drizzled" the ballchain around from the top "Create" to the pocket watch in the hand of the G45 image. I used the Claudine Hellmuth Matte Multi-Medium to adhere it to the canvas.
I had a lot of fun doing this canvas.
I hope that my friend likes it.
If you have any questions just let me know :))
