Look on the Bright side Canvas
By Emma with Bonus VIDEO

Hello 2Crafty friends.
Emma with you today with a canvas project.

Here is the awesome chipboard used:

Fancy Damask
Decorative Rod set 1
Steampunk gears small

This project started with a 5x7in canvas. Knowing that I wanted a slight medieval/steampunk vibe, the pieces of chipboard selected set this off awesomely.

It has multi layers starting with a So EmBellishment rice paper and then adding texture with texture paste and Seth Apter baked velvet emboss powder. Then came a little colour with a couple of Distress oxide sprays. The Fancy Damask and Decorative Rod were painted first with  a layer of acrylic paint and then another emboss powder, again Seth Apter, but in a baked texture.

The Steampunk gears and resins were painted with black gesso and then coated with a Distress Glaze. Then the resins had a hint of Prima wax added for more texture.

The finishes on the chipboard really make them pop and compliment each element on the project. You can watch these pieces and the whole canvas coming together in the video.

I hope this inspires and you get to have some crafty time over the long weekend.

Stay crafty, Em xx
