"Cogs" by Amy C

Hello D-Lish Scraps fans!

It’s Amy back here again, with a canvas project. I was quite inspired by Jane Tregonza recently on a crafty retreat.

I thought that the August ‘Off the wall’ Just Add Paper (JAP) kit was the perfect kit for this canvas project.. as you can see from the photos.

It went from this 
to this:

For the background, I have prepared with Black Gesso. 

Once dried, using a paintbrush I applied some ColourBlast Heavy White Gesso randomly. Using the 5x5 stencil and colour paste with a spatula, I applied it around the canvas. While the colour paste was still wet, I sprinkled some Colour Blast embossing powder then I shook off the remaining. Using a heat gun I melted the embossing powder into the colour paste. It achieved both a metallic and bubbly effect. This was one awesome technique I learned from Jane! Once I finished preparing the background, I moved onto the clipboard cogs ‘Off the Wall’ kit.

As shown here, to create the rustic industrial look, I did a combination of heat embossing with embossing powders.
I applied both colour paste and embossing powder, and used the heat gun to dry it.
I also adhered the orange ‘Micro-Beads’ from the ‘Summer Squeeze’ JAP kit released this January. 
Once each cog was transformed, I adhered them into their clusters of three and topped it off with D-Lish Enamel Dots from the store. Enamel dots are little beauties! – as you can see here.

In this closeup here, I have adhered the completed cogs onto silver ‘Punchinella’. I roughly trimmed the Punchinella to my liking. The Puncinella can be adhered either gel medium or a strong glue. The title ‘This One Time’ was trimmed down to small blocks. This title is from the ‘Off The Wall’ Kit Bit – Journal Pack. I have also sprinkled some of the ‘Orange Microbeads’ from the ‘Summer Squeeze’ JAP kit.

I hope you are inspired to go and create!

Ciao for now – Amy
