Altered Canvas Clock

Hello, Faber-Castell fans, welcome back! Meihsia here to share an altered project
that I used an old canvas and Faber-Castell products to make a very cute clock
as a wall decor or a birthday gift for a friend. Here are some quick steps showing
how I made this project.

The burlap canvas I used here is 6" X 6" so I cut the water color paper into 5.5" X 5.5".
 

After roughly drawing a cupcake sketch, I started to color it with Gelatos.


Use darker color Gelatos to shade and outline the image and background.


I used Gesso to soften the background and image colors and randomly stamped some text
using Stamper's Big Brush Pen on the edges. Then I stamped the sentiment on the white card
stock, cut and pasted it on the cupcake image.

After pasting this piece of water color paper on the canvas using Gel Medium, I
used Glaze to cover the surface. After it was dry, I installed the colck set on the canvas.

Here is the final look of the altered canvas clock.


I hope you'll have a chance to create or alter something using these fun techniques and
the awesome Faber-Castell products. See you next time! ^_^

I started paper crafting in 2011 and love to experiment different materials and new techniques to make cards, scrapbook layouts, Project Life and mixed media or altered projects. I love to see movie, go jogging, camping and shopping when I am not creating. The most important thing for me when making paper crafts is having fun.
