Steampunk Mixed Media Canvas

Hello everyone!!!!
Today I’m sharing a steampunk inspired mixed media canvas.
I started out with a 6x6 canvas that I covered in tissue paper and then painted with black gesso. 
I then added several layers of Art Alchemy Wax. Added my found things and covered them in black gesso. 

After the gesso dried I starting painting the items with different paints from the metallique line. 

After I painted my found things I actually changed the color of the background from purple and pink to kind of a copper and gold. Once everything was dry I added some butterflies cut from Graphic 45’s Steampunk Debutante line. 


For a final Touch I splattered black paint and added glitter to the butterflies. 
Thanks for stopping by! -AR
