Anyhoo enough of my blathering and on to the canvas....
I started with a canvas and some pretty non-traditional colors and of course my big ol pile of chippies!
To create a lot of dimension and build up the layers I used some drywall tape that has a crinkly torn edge and a similar color wash..... then stamped with an itty bitty script.
I'm using the large frame to anchor the focal point which is a heart clipped from Valentine paper then finished with Gelatos and archival inks. The butterfly chippie is centered on the heart and topped off with a large key ornament...more hand painted flowers and the Love sentiment.
After painting the chippie gears I tucked them in with the dimensional flowers to lighten it up and to draw the eye to the bottom corner.
