Steam Punk Canvas

Hi Ladies!

I made this canvas a while ago and waited for  Sandy to receive it before I posted it.  Yes she has another one of my canvases, but this one is very different.  She deserves it!!

I modge podged papers to the canvas and painted the sides black, brown and blue.  I drew the girl and designed her clothing.

I love how her hair wisps in the wind and her hat I added some feathers to.  I couldn't make the goggles  that usually go on the hat but this was my next best option.  She has a leather belt with a feather coming off it.  I painted a ruffle on the skirt.

I love her boots, I pieced them with the paper to get the design I wanted and I love a little attitude, foot on the clock, my time, stop time, don't rush me, I have forever.....ect.

There are rub-0ns in different places to add flow.  I love the big metal corners and Tim Holtz film strip.

I painted her hair and added the birds, they are a free flowing symbol of her hair.  I love the sentiment, as we are all beautiful in one way or another.

More angles and closeups, I really love this canvas. She was fun to make and I will do another one.

I have been finishing up my accounting so I can concentrate on my canvas art. It is torture to not create for me so I snuck in a card today, that will be coming up later.  First things first. lol
