Steampunk Canvas - Gabrielle Pollacco - WITH A VIDEO TUTORIAL

Hi All!  Gabrielle here with you today to share another mixed media canvas I made using some of my favourite Dusty Attic chipboard!  This is a small 5x7 canvas on which I used texture paste and stencils and lots of bits and pieces of my Dusty Attic chipboard.  Here are the Dusty Attic chippies I used for this one:
Dusty Attic Chipboard:
Jumbo Cogs, Wings, Wrought Iron Trim Set, Cogs 1, Zippers, Chains 4pc, Decorative Keyholes 8pk, Vintage Keys, Keys & Locks, Nuts & Bolts. 
~ Dusty In Color: Raisin and Cranberry Paint, DA Gloss Varnish (on heart)

I began by making a heart center piece using some Martha Stewart 'air dry' clay.  I just formed a heart shape using the clay and then used the tip of a pen (unopened) to put the little circle etchings into the clay...then left it to dry overnight.  You could use baking clay for this as well if you don't want to wait for your clay to air dry.  Once I had that done I was ready to create!  Here is a full video tutorial on how I made this canvas.  Enjoy!

Here are a few close-ups of the canvas....

The bottom strip and the 'V' shaped piece on it I just hand cut for this project from some left over chipboard.  I used a stencil and texture paste to make the measuring tape design.
I hope you enjoyed my video tutorial using Dusty Attic chipboard and hope that I've inspired you to give this type of project a try! xo

  1. I really love your work! I was so inspired by your pretty garden canvas, I made something similar for my mum! This is quite different, but every bit as gorgeous! You are truly gifted! Thank you for sharing your amazing talent! Julie Ann xxx
