Final DT piece using Stampendous Stamps

This is my last piece using Stampendous Stamps Steampunk Shoes for JB Crafting Supplies.
I decided to move a little out of my comfort zone & try a canvas.
I applied Gesso to the canvas, then applied some spotty tissue paper. When this had dried I spritzed the canvas with Cosmic Shimmer in Mist Bronze Blush, waited for that to dry then spritzed with Adirondak Colour Wash in Cranberry.
While this was drying I cut small pieces of paper from Papermania Chronology pack, I ripped the edges then inked using Frayed Burlap Distress Ink.
I stamped one image onto a piece of the paper & one onto some tissue which I inked with the frayed burlap.
Once the inks on the canvas were dry, I mixed some Americana acrylic paint in Lamp Black and Americana Texturizing Medium to spread through a cog stencil. This gave the cogs some dimension & texture.
Once the cogs were dry I adhered the papers to the canvas & covered them in a layer of gesso.
I brushed some Cosmic Shimmer Mica Powder in Blue Lilac over the cogs (I think you can just about see the shimmer in the close up photo!).
Found some charms & added these with some brads.
I am quite pleased with how my first attempt at a canvas has turned out.

Happy Mother's Day to all you mothers out there & hope your day has been good. I am just going to get a cuppa & look through a great book James has given me - Mixed Media Girls by Suzi Blu - hoping to try my hand at drawing! Watch this space!
