★ Timeless Canvas - Heartfelt Creations

Oct 22, 2014

Hello Everyone, it is Heartfelt Creations Wednesday and I have another project to share with you using the All Geared Up Collection.  As i have previously mentioned, this is one of my favorites from Heartfelt and wanted to  create a canvas with the papers.  I love how this turned out, lots of glimmer mist; a bit of fluid acrylic and many die cuts from the set.

This was another photo that Linda from HFC had sent me and what a gorgeous photo, that is her dad sitting in the photo and he was 83 when this was taken.  The colours in that truck matched this line perfectly, its almost like the line was created just for that truck :D. Here are some detail shots of the canvas.

bottom left flower detail, all that "webbing" look you see is just the glue gun dragged across, :D

the background colouring using the mists and chalk inks turned out beautifully to match Lindas Photo.

Prepare the creative embellishments chipboard by applying gesso to prime them, then ink with Tahiti chalk ink and baja blue chalk ink creating a aged patina look. Adhere to canvas, using art institute dries clear, also sprinkle mini beads around chipboard, mist with glimmer mist if needed. Lightly mist other pieces with verdigris glimmer mist. Add some speckles of gold lumiere paint by placing some on end of a paint brush and flicking the bristles towards the chipboard. Cut out several (9 - 10 sets) Geared up flowers from geared up papers, inking some with Tahiti, some with baja blue and some with walnut stain, mold using molding mat.

Distress the fab scraps hinges with glimmer mist and gold paint, add brads and hot glued to canvas for permanent hold. Add gold speckles to the flowers with the gold lumiere paint. Some of the flowers i hot glued down and i then took the glue gun and created glue strands going across the geared up flowers to give added detail and dimension. Feel free to add as many of the geared up die flowers to your project, this is such an incredible set. Feel free to use a small brush and add more gold glimmer mist, paint or baja blue and Tahiti chalk ink for extra colour.
