I'm starting my 4th year on the Scrapmatts Design Team so I thought it was about time I made a new display canvas for them to show at craft expos. I had such a blast playing with a couple of different techniques and getting to mix old and new chipboard together to come up with this piece. I'm actually a bit sad that I have to send it away. :)
I covered the canvas in sewing pattern paper, then covered that in gesso. I applied texture paste through a stencil in a couple of random spots. Randomly sprayed 4 different mists over the canvass and selected chipboard pieces. Applied some builders tape randomly. Painted the honeycomb black and embossed the chains in silver. Stuck it all down, added some flowers and bling and there you go!
I've used quite a few different chipboard pieces here: CB5132 Chains 01, CB6113 Scrap Words 32, CB5137 Ornate Toppers 01, CB5124 Hexagon Mesh 03, CB1017 Keys 01, CB1230 Hinges, Keys & Keyholes 03, CB1124 Hinges 01, CB1078 Gears 05. I also used ST5007 Stencil Stones on the background.
Just in case you're wondering what my original canvas looked like, I hunted down a photo. I think the new one does a much better job of showcasing the amazing chipboard designs Scrapmatts sells. Let me know which one you like best.
