Clockwise Manniquin Canvas

I spent a few (too few) days scrapping at an annual get-together of friends that we’ve come to know as Maggi Camp: a long weekend of wine, chatter, laughter and crafting. Our hostess always has a fantastic project or two for us and this year was no exception: a mini album (more on that later) and a mixed media project using our new obsession, products from Stamperia.

The image is patterned rice paper, perfect for decoupage, adhered to a canvas board with mixed media glue. Once this was dry, I added lace here and there around the edges before applying crackle paste all around the border.
Next came the misting all around the edges, using my heat tool to dry each layer of color before adding another. 

I also saturated the flowers with mist and allowed them to dry.

The chipboard gears were heat embossed, some with smooth embossing powder, others with Stampendous enamel to give a more textured appearance. The corner piece was embossed here and there.
Next came my other obsession: Prima waxes!!!! I went around the borders with Aged Brass to give the “frame” some consistency.
 All the chipboard pieces were covered with a variety of colors (I love the way that this allows the details to come through.) before being adhered to the canvas with matte medium.
And now it was time to put it all together: some layers of chippies, a few metal pieces and a cluster of flowers and I called it done!
