This project for Tattered Angels also features canvas. This time I wanted to incorporate canvas into a layout. There are a ton of great canvas embellishments on the market right now, and they are perfect for altering with Glimmer Mists. I’d already run through my stash though – so I used more canvas scraps from my sewing room.
I started by spritzing the background cardstock with Glimmer Mist (Tattered Leather, Walnut Gold, Jack O’Lantern) and added some stamping for texture using the Rockin’ Renaissance Tattered Textures set.
I used a mask on the larger piece of canvas, to get the look of bricks, and sprayed it with Glimmer Mists in Indian Corn, Santa Baby and Tattered Leather. Once it was dry, I wanted to tone it down a little, so I gave it a light coat of Chalkboard mist in Hot Chocolate.
The canvas strips, canvas letters and corduroy brad were all coloured with Glimmer Mist in Artic Blue and Denim Blue. I applied it with a brush to the letters and brad to get a more intense color. The gears have been painted with Oilslick Glimmer Glaze.
