A canvas for Scraps of Darkness on-line Shop

Good day to all my Bloggy friends!

For this post I would love to share with you a Canvas I created for the Scraps of Darkness on-line Shop. I used the 5'x7' canvas from Winsor & Newton. As you will see in the next photo, I ripped the canvas and peeled the canvas back to expose the wooden frame. This way I got some lovely texture without having to go to the trouble of adding cloth to a frame...






I simply cut an x in the middle of the canvas and tore the pieces apart. I then plied the canvas and glued it with Heavy Body Gel.




This was my initial look and idea I had for the project...After this was done I wanted to add some Rust effect...But once I started I just could not stop adding the Rust Paste! Up to here I had Gesso'd all of it. In the background one can see the pink Fancy Pants Corrugated Sheet that was also Gesso'd. I have used windows from the Prima Shabby Chic Treasures Window III. They are layered with the smaller one in the crevice and the taller one on top of the frame. I used US Artquest Prills: Minni Pearls for texture as well Art Stones. All was painted with Prima Opal Magic Paints: Aqua Rose and  Pink Blue.

As said before....this is were you can stop if you like a more Shabby Chic look...or you can go wild and add Ruste Paste or even different colour Acrylic Paints.














I have used Distress Stains: Evergreen Bough and Peeled Paint on the corrugated Sheet, but the same effect can be achieved using any mist or paints or even Brusho Crystal Colors. The rust effect in the corner is watered down Rust Paste.










Although the final project differs from what I had in mind in the beginning, I do hope that I can inspire you to try something similar...

Capture this Moment
June 2016 Dusty Attic DT Post

Hallo dear Blog Friends...

Recently I was asked by a friend to create a page for her of her darling Daughter ... This then is for her...



The papers I used are from Blue Fern's Timeless and Serendipity collections. Using Dusty Attic Texture Paste I stencilled some designs on the background. I then embossed them with Lindy's Stampgang Embossing Powders Byzantine Bronze and C'est la vie Cerise.




Using the two Decorative Frames nr 1&2, I dressed them by first giving them a lot of texture using a heavy texture paste. I then painted them using Dusty Attic paint Oceania. I also embossed them randomly using the same embossing powders as on the background.







I also added some glass beads for texture...








The Word Strip was first gesso'd lightly and painted with the Oceania Paint.



The heavy Texture Paste gives the chipboard a real weathered look.





These are the products I used from the Dusty Attic store...





















Thank you so much for your visit...Wishing you Happy Scrappy days...
