Collage Picture Inspiration Canvas

Hi Everyone...........thank you so much for visitng today.....I really do appreciate your visits and comments. 

Today I am sharing my DT make for this fortnight's challenge over at Craft Room Challenge blog, which is Picture Inspiration. 

The  first challenge theme of 2014 was chosen by one of our Facebook group members, Christine Cesar, who resides in France. Christine is an avid fan of collage and you can see the picture inspiration  she provided over on our blog. HERE

The sponsor for this  fortnight's challenge is Ali Craft and you can win a £10 voucher to spend online............I do hope you can join in the fun. It would be great to see you there :-)

I was inspired by the keys, metal and timepieces from Christine's picture :-) and I was desperate to use this 3" by 11" canvas :-)
 I  literally started off with my  blank CANVAS :-)   and applied texture paste through a harlequin stencil, then I painted with TH Distress Paint in Vintage Photo.
The La Blanche images were stamped on to tissue and adhered with CH Multi Medium in matte finish. I used TH Distress Markers in Tumbled Glass and Barn Door on the eyes and lips. 
The mesh was adhered with some small TH brads and the ideaolgy pieces were  painted with  Ranger Adirondack Paint in Silver, then sanded to create an aged effect. I used  Ranger Glossy Accents to adhere the wings to the timepiece and then on to the mesh.
 
 Salty Ocean Distress Ink was applied through some TH stencils both at the bottom and top of the canvas, then some Treasure Gold Gilding wax in Sapphire was applied to the textured areas, finishing off with Walnut Stain DI to create definition around the edges.

I would also like to enter this project at Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenges, where the challenge theme is Blues. 

Within my project I have applied Salty Ocean Distress Ink, Treasure Gold  in Sapphire Blue and Distress Marker in Tumbled Glass.


Over at Country View Crafts the Challenge theme is Monochromatic and I have used Browns and Blues

At Sandee & Amelie's Steampunk Challenge you have to use some 'new stuff 'and I have used some of my new Ideaology pieces. ( Thank You Anne x )


Best Wishes to you all and I wish you all a very creative and Happy New Year
