A Different Perspective SteamPunk Canvas

by Deb Adams

Hi There,

I am sharing my first project for the Scrap FX Design Team of 2019.

Featuring their wonderful steampunk themed products of chipboard embellishments, stamps & stencils.

My focal image was chosen & fussy cut from an older Graphic 45 paper pack (Steampunk Debutante).  Love the way he looks hovering over the moon.

The moon image was made using a circle mask on my Gel Press plate with various acrylic paints in blues & neutrals on mixed media cardstock.

The Canvas Board (30 x 40.5 cm) was base coated with Black Gesso. Various Blue Acrylic paints were applied through the Intersections Stencil to the Paper & Canvas.

Randomly cut papers from the Collection were edged with a Picket Fence hole punch & everything stamped with the Head Circuit Stamp in Walnut Stain & Faded Jeans Distress Oxide Inks.

The Main Sentiment was coloured using Brushed Pewter & Tarnished Brass Distress Stain Dabbers

( & a tiny bit of blue paint)

then immediately dipped in a container of my favourite mixture of ‘dirty’ clear UTEE

& heated to make that gorgeous texture.

This mixture comprises fragments of Pewter, Black & Gold UTEE with mostly Clear.

It bubbles up in a very random, textured way when applied over metallic Distress Stain!

The UTEE mix can also be applied using an Embossing Dabber as I did under the moon & in various places around the edge of the project.  Love that texture!


The Chain and Clip, Steampunk AssemblageCogs & Wheels were heat embossed

with the UTEE mixture over metallic distress stain & black gesso.


The Fractured Time pieces around the moon were coloured in the same way.

Finished off with shading using Faber Castell Big Brush pens, stamped sentiment & some metal nuts & screw heads.

Keeping my eye out for an appropriate sized frame to display this project. Will be fun to alter too.

Looking forward to sharing some more steampunk projects with you later this month.

Hope this inspires you to use a few gears on your projects & to lay down some embossed texture.

Cheers for now,

Deborah Adams
