I am building a range of mixed media canvases, pages and more for the Scrapbooking and Papercraft Shows. I am not a papercrafter and I don’t really get the ‘scrapbooking’ thing, but I do like working on canvases. Here is one I have just completed.
I have used a very eclectic mix of objects in here, but it is still a structured and formal layout.
There are two Tim Holtz products: A pre printed Hessian canvas from the District Market range (Clockmaker) and my all time favourite Clock faces – Timepieces from the Ideology ranges. The photo is one I have licenced from www.depositphotos.com.
the quote is transfered using Transfer Artist Paper on to Kraft Tex. I really liked the effect of this and to finish it of a bit, I have stitched around the edge with my maching.
The knives and the upholstery fabric behind them came from one of the local charity op shops. I liked the texture on the knife handles. I applied two coats of gesso and then painted two coats of Jacquard Textile Colour in Raw Sienna. Once it was dry, I heated some embossing powder over the surface to ‘tarnish’ it a bit. I don’t know the brand or colour of the embossing powder as it is very, very old and I can’t read the jar. The knives are no longer relevant as cutlery, they are there for their horizontal lineal look.
What do you think?
