Altered Canvas

This is a design team project for SaCrafters Zibbet store. I altered a 6x6 canvas to create a steampunk/vintage name sign for my YT channel. I started by using Claudine Helmuth multi-medium gel to adhere Tim Holtz Idea-ology tissue paper to the canvas. As I was adhering the tissue paper, I bunched it up in areas to create a wrinkled texture effect. I then used some Lindys Stamp Gang pink color to add some pink hue to the canvas because I didn't want this canvas to be too dark in color, although it is of a steampunk design. for a little more pink, I added a pink flower and at the top of the wooden lamppost, I used German glass glitter with some pink shimmer mist to tie all the "pink-ness" together!  I then used tons of SaCrafters product, as well as prima product to create the look I wanted. I wanted this canvas to portray "what art means" in a fun way. I also used acrylic paint mixed with sand to apply some texture to the tops of the embellishments/flowers. Here's the pics:
