steampunk canvas

The current trend seems to be for that Steampunk feel to altered art and mixed media pieces and with the gorgeous cogs available I decided to try my hand at a steampunk inspired canvas....

the base was a canvas which was painted with acryllics and then using a Tim Holtz mask was hi-lighted using inka gold.  The cogs were painted with crocco paint by viva decor....metal embellishments and an image from graphics 45 were added to finish off the piece...

Nice work there Carol. Steampunk seems quite a difficult style, but you have carried it off really well.
