Childhood Memories ~~Scraps of Darkness~~

Good Morning,  I'm excited to share a canvas piece that I did using the August Kit, from Scraps of Darkness!  This was so fun to create.  I started with the 5x7 canvas that came in the add on kit.  First step was to gesso the entire canvas.  I then took some script tissue paper and stamped some Tim Holtz "Bitty Grunge" with Adirondack Eathtones "Pitch Black".  I then tore that and glued that onto the top and bottom corners of the canvas.  Be sure to dry the Gesso completely before stamping.  For the next step I used the Lumiere "Halo Blue Gold" and the Lumiere "Citrine" and painted the entire canvas.  After that had dried I used some molding paste and "set" the 3x3 mini canvas on top of that and continued to add molding paste around the mini canvas and also around the edges of the canvas.  While the molding paste was still wet I added in some steampunk mini gears and watch parts along with some of the "Midnight" micro beads from the kit and let that dry.  I then took the Lumiere colors and again painted over the molding paste.  After that I used some Adirondack Alcohol Ink "Slate" and some Adirondack Mixatives "Copper" and used my finger to spread that around on the edges.  For the Imaginarium Designs Chipboard pieces I also used the same colors as on the rest of the canvas for a monochromatic feel.  To finish it off I added some copper beads and Vintaj metal pieces.  Thanks for taking a peek and I hope you enjoy!
