MIXED MEDIA STEAMPUNK CANVAS BY TANYA CLOETE

Hello  Buddies,

Tanya here with a Mixed Media Canvas using the beautiful Decoupage Specialty Papers and Premium Textured Chipboard by Bob n Betty. I’ve decided to go with a Steampunk theme. Here are the basic steps to follow:

Tutorial:

  1. Cut the textured chipboard to make an 8×8 size canvas.
  2. Cut the decoupage papers to fit the 8×8 canvas/chipboard. Apply with clear gesso and give another coat of clear gesso on top. Leave to dry.
  3. Randomly stamp some brick images on the canvas and then add crackle texture paste using a stencil.
  4. Randomly spray some gold mists on the canvas and leave to dry.
  5. Randomly add some rub on elements.
  6. Add the metal corners.
  7. Paint the various chipboard elements with black gesso, build your composition and adhere with gloss gel. Leave to dry.
  8. Start applying some different colour waxes to the chipboard composition.
  9. Emboss the chipboard piece (DOCUMENTED) with Ranger Embossing Powder.
  10. Arrange the rest of your embellishments (metal, sequins, string) as per the picture or as you like.
  11. All done!

Here are some close ups…

Hope you like this as much as I enjoyed making it!

Happy Papercrafting!
Tanya Cloete
