Using the theme "Forever" this is Michelle's last canvas. Using the Graphic 45 Steampunk Debuntante collection. Flowers created by Tim Holtz rosette die, T Holtz gears and metal flowers from 'unknown'. She lived the way this one turned out. This is for her sister in remembrance of their Dad.
One of 3 canvases that I'm doing for a friend. Using a 12x12 canvas, adhered beautiful papers from Graphic 45 Curtain Call collection. These canvases are for her and her family to remember their dad. Her dad doesn't have much longer to live and she wants to surprise him with this gift.

Tag is first distressed with Glimmer Mists (Tattered Angels); stamped with the Lady in a long coat by Altered Pages, the flower image is also by Altered Pages, sheet #598. Buttons from stash. What is her secret? I guess we will never know. Maybe it's hiding under her long coat, or maybe she has been stood up in the garden.

This is actually not a stretch canvas but a piece of 7.5x7.5 mdf board that I painted the edges and covered the surface with some paper by K&Co. The image is cut from Graphic 45 LeRomantique collection. The pearl and lace are by Prima. Handmade satin roses and metal flowers by Graphic 45 finish the piece. I just love doing these little canvases. So many of the new papers by Graphic 45 and other companies really inspire me. Enjoy

This is not my best steampunk, but it was fun to do. I found this old dessert spoon from a collector's series. It has a kangaroo at the top..but it's from a Canadian collection. In the bowl of the spoon I glued in some watch parts to look like they were spilling out. It's for a swap so I hope my partner likes it. The group has been doing some really awesome spoons. Mine pales in comparison. I will do another one later on.
