Double Frame Canvas for Studio 75 DT

Hi dear crafty friends! Today I want to share with you a Double Frame Canvas for Studio 75 DT. This canvas is a combination between paper crafting and mixed media. You don’t always need to have a full mixed media background or project to get pretty steampunk piece.   Double Frame Canvas. Studio 75 DT I started with painting the edges of the canvas with black gesso. Then I attached a piece of pattern cardstock on top. I used the Mrs & Mr collection by Studio 75. For added texture I added chipboards which I painted with acrylic paints to the background. I added two frames as my focal points for the vintage photos I used.         To enhance the steampunk look I added some metal embellishments. When you use metallic paints, cogwheel shaped chipboards and metal parts you can have that steampunk look on any project!       Have you Joined the VIP Room? Where every month …

Recycled Mixed Media Steampunk Project

Hi dear crafty friends! Today I want to share a Recycled Mixed Media Steampunk Project I created completely by accident. I planned to create something else and then while planning my project I found a chipboard sheet of a used chipboard shape that I used for another project. The only thing that was left was the empty chipboard sheet, but that gave me an idea…     Recycled Mixed Media Steampunk Project         I wanted to use this chipboard sheet as a base for a mixed media project and include more recycled materials. So I added  a piece of corrugated cardboard and a string. From there the project just had a life of its own and took shape almost automatically. I also added some cogwheels and lots of texture with art stones. The focal point of the project was some metal pieces that were placed on another empty chipboard piece. Then I painted everything with metallic acrylic …

Fearless Mixed Media Canvas

Hi dear crafty friends! Today I’m sharing my Fearless Mixed Media Canvas I created for Words & Paintery challenge. The theme was to use red colors and give an interpretation to the quote: Courage is not the absence of fear, which I think is a very true quote, at least for me. I always try not to let fear guide me both in my life and in my art.     Fearless Mixed Media Canvas I started this canvas with an idea. I was working on a different project, using some chipboard cogwheels and when they were all finished only the outer sheet remained. I looked at it and knew immediately I had to use it in a project. I just loved the square sheet with the different size holes. So I started with adding texture to a canvas with modeling paste and then glued the chipboard sheet on the canvas. The textured paste created enough height that the chipboard …

Steampunk Canvas Set with Rust Pastes

Hi dear crafty friends! Today I want to share my Steampunk Canvas Set with Rust Pastes. I entered this piece to the Lindy’s Stamp gang challenge because the colors really fit. Btw, if you haven’t participated in a challenge before try it it’s really fun and you might win something too…     Steampunk Canvas Set with Rust Pastes For this set I used three 4×4 canvases and lots of metal embellishments. I used the larger embellishments to connect the canvas together into one unit. If you want to do something like this make sure you use heavy gel medium to glue everything to the canvas and wait until it’s dry… it can be awhile.          Then I painted everything with black gesso. When it was dry I sprayed everything with sprays to add the initial color. After it was dry I added rust pastes which gave all the metal a rusty look complete with the grainy …
