Hi! Today I’m sharing a steampunk mixed media canvas. I decided that every Tuesday I will share an mixed media project, it can be an art journal, a canvas , a tag… using lots of my favorite techniques and experimenting with new ones. For today I created a canvas (well on an MDF board) but you can easily get inspired and adapt it on paper or an art journal.
To create my project I mainly used one patterned paper. It’s from the latest collection by Antonis Tzanidakis for Stamperia., “Sir Vagabond”. If you want to check the collection you can see the unboxing video here. To turn the project into a steampunk mixed media canvas I just had to add a few gears that I had in my stash for ever. I am so happy with the outcome! It’s already decorating my craft room.

Here are some phots where you can see better all te details, texture and dimension.
The wooden gears add a lot of texture and dimension on the project.
The background was so easy to create, just sticking down a patterned paper and spraying with color. A bit of stenciling is also a must!
I popped all my cut out elements with foam tape to have layers and more depth.
The town has 3 layers and looks awesome in real life with all the depth.
I also enhanced the colors with my big brysh markers technique, by adding highlights and shading.
I had so much fun making my steampunk mixed media canvas and I hope you will too as you follow along my free video class.
