Journey with Gypsy Soul

Hi Everyone,
 Over at Gypsy Soul Laser cuts we are doing a month long match up with Canvas Corp.  I'm rather spoiled since I have been able to work with both of these teams.
I decided to make a tattered canvas for you today.

Cut your canvas down to a size that suits you and pull out strands to fray the edges.  Spray canvas with water and crumple.  Flatten canvas and spray on your Glimmer Mists(Crocheted Doily, Gilded Gold, and Stone). Dry the canvas with a heat tool. Drip on some Walnut Stain Distress Ink to make rust spots.

Add parchment rub ons just to the top and bottom area where the Architecture sticker won't cover.  Tear the edge of your architextures sticker and glue sticker onto canvas.

Paint the back of your Double Window Ornate  with a metallic red paint.  Cover the top with Charred Gold Embossing powder.

 When your paint is dry glue the two pieces together and then glue your focal image to the back of the window.

Paint the word Journey from the Chevron Words Travel Lg set using Black High Impact Paint. Stipple on High Impact Paint in Gold and then go back in and stipple on another layer of Black.  
Paint one set of the Wings using White Acrylic, Dina Wakley Paint in Elephant, and a touch of Black High Impact.
Attach wings to the back of the   Double Window Ornate and adhere to the background using several layers of foam tape to add dimension. 
Cut Ticking to size and glue down your word.  Attach the ticking to the background using staples.  
Add vintage hat pins and a charm to complete your piece.  

Happy Crafting!
