Game Piece Canvas

Hi everyone,
I have been working on a dimensional piece for several weeks now. You probably saw it on my work desk last Wednesday when I was getting ready to apply the gesso. It all started with a 12X12 painted  canvas. I used a stencil and applied embossing paste to the surface in a square pattern. Here is the link to the post showing the beginnings. Well I did get it coated and dry.  I have photos of that for you. I actually did two coats of gesso before I was happy.


Once the gesso was applied, I created my picture frame using metallic tape and an embossing folder from Tim Holtz's alterations.
Next came layers of Adirondack spray inks. After the ink was dry I applied embellishments from the Idea-ology line by...you guessed it, Tim Holtz. 


The final touches where the Perfect Pearls Mists
It gave the cogs a little metal shimmer.

So here is a little video tour.

I hope you enjoyed seeing my creation. It's going to someone very special. 
Have a great day and thanks for stopping by.
