I have used a large canvas approx 14" x 18" with four small canvases attached in varying sizes.
I applied Traditional Tan acrylic paint to all canvases using a baby wipe. Over the top I added a mixed of Sky Blue and Blank Canvas to soften added here and there. Lines of Sable Brown with the edge of a card. While the paint was drying I cut pieces of white gift tissue to fit each canvas and stamped using assorted sewing themed stamps with Timber Brown StazOn.
I attached the tissue to the canvas using melted natural beeswax. I find the smell of melted beeswax very relaxing.
When the wax was cold I buffed up with a soft cloth, this gives the project a lovely shine. The deeper the wax the better the shine. All the canvases are edged with Old Gold Inka Gold. I have then attached various bits and bobs from my sewing box to finish off including some sewing feet, bobbins and shuttles from an old sewing machines.
