I prepped the canvas and Southern Ridge Trading Company Gears Cluster chipboard cut with white gesso. Once dry I stamped the big gear from the Dapper set... plus some of the other stamps in the set.
The gearhead thinlit is a detailed die cut so the Creative Station is perfect to add adhesive to it. So easy!
Simply run the gear die cut through, burnish so you get full adhesion of adhesive, peel and add to the canvas. Use the adhesive remover to take any sticky residue off.
With the gearhead die cut adhered to the canvas you can add distress crayon. Scribble and smudge and let the gesso do all the work.
Use stencils to add some texture removing with a baby wipe. I also added distress crayon to the chipboard gears too. I cut Gear Head using the Broadway XL die.
I coated the letters in Emboss It and Hammered Metal embossing Powder for a solid metallic look. Apply a layer of Distress Clear Rock Candy Crackle and let dry. Guess what... this chipboard cut runs through the Creative Station EASILY!
Ohhh look at those awesome grungy layers!
I love this old vintage photo from an old photo album I was given. Love this war time image!
Layering with stamps looks amazing. Adding lots of layers keeps you looking.
Check out that crackle! The crackle reacts with the distress crayons and they start to blend together.
Pulled together all the gears, stamping, crackling and inking creates this grungy, masculine canvas!
Stop by the Xyron page to see what the team has for you all week. Father's Day is coming June 18th so get your gears out!
