Memories Canvas


I am so glad you have joined me, Corina, today for my post! I have created a shadow box style canvas of my two boys (Tyler and Colten) to share with you.

I started my project by picking my Chipboard embellishments and having them in front of me on my work surface along with my Canvas. I decided to flip the canvas upside down and use it as a Shadow Box style frame.
I cut the Lg Frame Gears into a few pieces and glued them in the opening of the frame using Multi Medium. I also cut the keys from that design, using one in the frame (under the picture in the middle), one on the left side of the frame and two on top of the Gears Banner - jumbo.

I added burlap and a few metal embellishments to the layout. I used a paintbrush to cover everything with a even coat of black gesso. I painted the sides of the canvas plus the banner and the Memories Word with the black gesso. I set it aside to dry.
Once dry, I used Lindys sprays to add the colour and heat set between colour layers. I love the look that I have created and the depth that the different embellishments give. I added paper to the frame and used a gear stencil and distress ink to create a soft design.

The Gears Banner was adhered to the frame at the top, bottom and right side. To finish off my frame, I added the metal bolts to the corners, the Memories Word and Key embellishments.

  1. Love me some Steampunk and this is definitely right up my alley! Fantabulous reverse canvas and details. Love the subtle patina effect and the lovely chippies by SRTC. So many wonderful details to take it and every time I look, I see something new! Awesome sauce design Corina!
