Due to my addiction to Truth Coffee at the moment, I seem to be rather into the Steampunk style, so I have been playing around with some textures and ideas as seen in the canvas I did where Truth meets Tim Holtz. but I could not leave it there...
Here are some close up photos to show you some of the layers and techniques I used on this canvas.
I glued tissue paper to the canvas, painted it with brown acrylic paint, added some black for where the bird cage was going and then some bronze Heritage Magic Touch to catch the creases.
In this photo you can see the depth of the plastic cogs which were taken from a dead printer and painted with some brown Maya Gold paint and clipped with bronze Heritage Magic Touch.
The edge of the canvas was done using some cogs and the tissue paper under sticky foil strips and black paint.
The clock inside the cog is done using the packaging from Tim Holt's metal clocks which I cut and glued behind the cog and the two cogs to the left are covered in distress ink and then clear crackle paint.
This is some part from the printer I think (as I have a huge bag of bits from printers and computers that have died) which I sprayed with bronze perfect pearl mists and the lock was brass which I painted to match the cogs.
The electronic bit here is from the inside of the CD rom of my old computer.
Here you can see some of the studs I got from my local habby store to use for added dimension and the raindrops made with glossy accents under the paint.
Thanks for the visit.
