Steampunk Canvas

Good Morning Crafty Friends, Followers and Visitors

Well the new craft room has been well and truly christened.

I got really messy creating today's blog post for you.

I decided to have a go at the Kit and Clowder mixed media class and this is my interpretation.


5 x 7 canvas, I gave a coat of white gesso and then stencilled cogs and gears and honeycomb modelling paste.  Once this was dry I spritzed blues, greens and rusts.  Once this was dry I dry brushed copper over some of the canvas and around the edges.

I printed the image Saturated Canary Steampunk Style and coloured with Copics then cut out. I painted the wings with Gesso and spritzed with distress ink once dried I dry brushed Pebeo Copper paint, adhered to canvas and placed the image over the top.


To finish off I added cogs, lace which has been painted with Pebeo Dyan paint and flower to her hair, to 2 of the corners metal embellishments and flowers which have all been spritzed with blue green and rust ink.

I would like to enter this into the following challenges:
