For our introduction on the Canvas Corp design team, they asked us to create a tiny 4x4 canvas that represented us. Of course, I knew I would go with an industrial themed piece.
I tried to incorporate some of my favorite products while making this fun steampunk niche. The back of the canvas was used so that I would have a small space to tuck things inside. I used this project to utilize some completed elements that had not been used like the resin encased tin type and resin filled bezel.
Paper tape from 7 Gypsies was added behind these ladies to add some interest to this background. I also used a lot of gears from 7 Gypsies as well.
The layers of metal embellishments were built up with matte medium. Lots of copper mica flakes were tucked in as I built up the canvas as well. This adds a lot of glimmer and glitz. There are so many little bits tucked inside! To keep the element of movement present in this piece I attached a bird charm that has the ability to swing on the tiny pin.
I hope you enjoyed seeing a project that hopefully represents me as a designer. Thank you as always for your readership!
