This week's Ultimate Designer Challenge over at Swirlydoos was to make a canvas using multiple layers of mediums. Just my luck, I had been planning a canvas as a gift and just hadn't made the leap from my head to the canvas yet. What a perfect opportunity to bring my idea to life.

This is a 12x16 canvas. There are layers of gesso, paint, Mod Podge, modeling paste, matte medium, gel medium, moon shadow mist, and glaze all over this thing. The best part is that the odds n ends that were used were all just leftovers in my stash or random parts that but hubby brought home for this specific purpose.

This cross is my favorite part of the whole canvas. It was just a plain wood laser cut that is sold at my local dollar store. I purchased a few for making cards for perople at church and such and it just turned out perfect with the seed beads. The gears and key hole are left over parts from previous projects and the bricks are modeling paste and a Prima mask.

The zipper was perfect!! Garage sale find!!!  The piece behind the R is a napkin ring piece that I disassembled. 

I can't wait to present this canvas, I really love the way it turned out.
