Starting to make gifts again.......D

I went a little mad today. like you do, when you in a craft shop lol.  I bought 8 canvases and more paints.  So what could I do but to break open the plastic on the canvas and get messy.  I have many stamps that have never made light of day.  I decided on steampunk divas, beautiful set of stamps.

First of all I gessoed the canvas and the following layer was a mix of white and taupe acrylics.  I stamped the entire background with a clock collage stamp using coffee archival ink.  I stamped the images from the set onto tissue, seperating them by tearing and layered them onto the canvas.

Once dried I used a TH clock diecut as a mask and used texture paste mixed with a little brown acrylic to fill the gaps.  Does that make sense lol.  I pulled the mask away and dried it off a little.  I then spread crackle medium over the top to age it a little. I used the actual diecut, after having the same treatment, cut and placed on the canvas.  The hands of the diecut I triple embossed using black utee and wiped perfect pearls over the top.  I deliberately snapped one of the hands before sticking to the Crafty-Emblies pocket watch face which had the rock candy treatment.

I used a couple photo holders (forgotten their proper name lol) with timeless and search on them.  I created the sentiment using my thingymajigmachine!  - Use your time wisely to create yourself.

I used brushed cordurouy round the edge of canvas and brushed sporadically over the entire piece.  I then sprayed a golden mist over it. 






Well I think thats it for now.... I do hope you like my effort tonight.  I certainly enjoyed making it.
