Graphic 45 Altered Canvas
My first 12 x 12 Altered Canvas using Graphic 45 Steampunk Debutante collection. The canvas was first painted black/brown using acrylic paint. When dried I sprayed it Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist (Gold) in the corners where the paper was torn away. You can't really see it in the picture and with the embellishments. I could have left that out with no change in the look. From there I just went ahead and glued the papers and embellishments down using Gel Medium. I had layed out the canvas in different ways before settling with this one. Once I got started gluing down the first piece for the background..it all just came together. I used the T!m Holtz gear die to cut some gears and distressed them with Vintage Photo and Soot Black. Flowers are from stash and I Glimmer Misted those a little too and added a little Stickles here and there. The pearls are from Stampin'Up and the gears from T!m Holtz. Voila!!
