The Mirror Crack'd Challenge.

Welcome to all my new followers, hope you enjoy the journey.
Here we are again for another challenge at The Mirror Crack'd and this month it's to decorate a Canvas.

Hope you like mine........ I have named it:
Beyond Time.

Instead of a physical prize this month we would like to offer our Winner a Guest Designer spot for a future challenge.
So here we go.......

I started by covering the canvas with Gesso and then applied some Tim Holtz tissue paper which I screwed up to produce texture and glued this down.

Next I added some grunge paste through a stencil and covered parts of it with embossing powder and heated this. I allowed everything to dry and then applied a thin covering of stain to the canvas and then attached some embellishments, including cogs, frame, birds, pen nibs etc.
These were allowed to dry before adding more gesso to seal everything and then further paint can be applied.

Once this was dry I added some Treasure Gold which makes the detail pop out.
I also screwed in a door pull at the top.

And here is the finished Canvas.

I hope you will pop over and see what my DT members have made for your delight.
I look forward to seeing your entries for the challenge which you will find by clicking here: challenge.

and happy Crafting,
