Mixed media steampunk canvas

Hi, everyone! I am here today to show you my new creation as a Guest DT member for the amazing A Vintage Journey Challenge blog! I am so honored to have such an awesome opportunity!
I decided to use a canvas (reversed side) and to applied two coats of iron paint on the edges. After it dried I put a coat of rust oxidant on top of it. I used Tim's Measured stencil and red-brown paste on the border. For the background I cut a piece of black cardstock and used two Tim's embossing folders (Clock and Gears) and got a pattern I wanted. The metallic look is achieved with the help of several different Perfect pearl mists on there. I stamped the eye image (Tim Holtz classics #12 stamp set) with black Archival ink on a manila tag, cut out and put a Tim's monocle on top. All the embellishments I used there were mostly by Tim Holtz and I also used some findings from my stash as well as the small light bulb. The quote was stamped on a manila tag (one of Tim's stamps) cut out and glued down on the bottom. The fasteners were rusted with Crafty Notions rust powder.
