Rebecca Baer Stencils GDT: Fearless Art Canvas using Steampunk Clockface Stencil

  Hi all

 I am guest designer over on the Rebecca Baer blog  and  i am sharing a canvas i made using the Steampunk Clockface Collage Stencil ST-613  . I love these because there are so many parts of the stencil that can be used to create unique backgrounds.

I took a 7x7 inch blank canvas and using thick texture paste i created a textured boarder using the flourish along the side of the stencil. I dried it with a heat tool to prevent smudging.

next i took the clock in the center of the stencil and applied it to the center of the canvas. I dried it off and then applied another layer of texture paste to make it stand out.

I then painted the whole thing in bronze and copper paint and did an undercoat of red shimmer paint over the clock before painting it copper.

I then mixed brown and orange acrylic paint together to create a rust color, which i added cinnamon powder over while it was wet to create texture. I then dabbed over the top with more paint to seal it and left to dry.

I used some of the paint mixture on the clock face which i dabbed on with my finger to give the fine details an even covering of rust.

I used blue shimmer paint on the clock hands to create a peeled paint look and adhered them to the clock with a glue gun, adding an ornate brad to the center to finish it off.

The quote was made using an alphabet stamp set and smooth card. I cut out the words and spritzed them with Sepia Ink before adhering to the canvas.

Thank you for visiting
