Always find time ... Nicole Doiron - Canvas Off the Page

Hello Dusty FANattics! 

It is Nicole here with you today and my fingers are still blue and purple 
from this latest mixed media project that I created for you!

I totally fell in love with the many new chipboard Industrial series from Dusty Attic,
and I wanted to use a few pieces on a canvas. I opted for this long and narrow base
which I primed with gesso and then covered in different mists and paints.
I then added some texture using modeling paste with the DA Squared stencil
and then added more mist and paint and added some glitter.

I used the Industrial Border #2 as well as the Industrial Corners.
These pieces I have covered with embossing powder and then dabbed with
Dusty in Colour Oceania and Capri paints.

I thought that this Winged Key would be a great focal point for my canvas.
I used gold embossing powder on it and then dabbed on some blue, lilac and gold paint.
I thought it would look cool to add a metal key on top of it.

My canvas being so tall and narrow I had to look in my stash for a title that would
fit and thankfully Dusty Attic has titles of all shapes and sizes.
This one was also perfect for the type of sentiment I wanted to express.

After all my chipboard and embellishments were stuck down,
I sprayed some aerosol adhesive and sprinkled lots of sparkle
using the Dress My Craft Angel Mix sequins.

Here is the list of Dusty Attic products that I used on my canvas:

Winged Keys - DA1955
Clockworks Small - DA1749
Industrial Border #2 - DA1950
Industrial Corners - DA1952
Always Find Time - DA1458
