A Small Memory Canvas

 I started this small canvas months ago.

Then I just set it aside.

I had painted it with Heavy Black Gesso, added some stenciling with modeling paste, and started adding Mica Powder Sprays on top.

Then I used a sponge to add Metalliques in various blues, greens, and purples. Some splashes of white paint brightened it up a bit, and then a layer of black ink stamping.

 Then it got pushed around on my desktop for months. Many months. But I found it just laying there, and decided it needed to be finished.

So I got out the Mechanicals and the Art Pebbles, some gold ric-rac and a paper doily and set to work.

The silver Steampunk Blade was painted with white gesso and Pink/Blue Opal Magic paint. The Pebbles are painted with different Metalliques and the stars have Gold Opal Magic Powder layered onto them. 

Some Glass Glitter and Micro Beads with a few strands of metallic thread finish off the background. 

The little girl is from the Finnabair Vintage Collectibles set in the small watch face with glitter and beads. 

You get a different color every time you turn it with the metallic paints and sprays.

Hope you enjoy!

What a great way to showcase lots of products and ideas for them! Sometimes a project is meant to be sitting around for the right time for it all to come together! Love it!
