Good morning! It's a cold snowy day here in Minnesota - so I'm home crafting today! My latest project is this altered canvas. I am a HUGE lover of all things steampunk, so I tend to hoard gears, clocks, computer parts and all kinds of odds and ends...they always eventually end up on a project!
A couple of close up shots of the pieces & parts...
I'm entering this project in the latest challenge at Craft Hoarders Anonymous - check out the challenge blog to see the details of the challenge and some uber-amazing art from the DT!
I created some texture on the canvas using my favorite - Paint N Patch. Yep, drywall patch compound :) It works just like any other kind of craft modeling paste and it's cheap! Plus it dries really fast so I can get on with the creating! I colored the canvas using a few shades of Perfect Pearls pigments and then spritzed the canvas with water to make it "stick", then topped it with all the gears and chains and miscellaneous pieces from my stash.
