mini altered canvas

Hello Crafters....

I have been toying with altereing a mini box canvas and decided to do something for my husband, whose birthday is tomorrow! It's blazing hot in this part of India, so I thought I will stick to some aqua colors that can visually be cooling!!!

I layered the canvas with torn pages from a novel with gel medium matte and then gave a coat of gessso.
Later,adhered some washi tapes, and measuring tape( since my husband heads a garment division) to go with the masculine theme. I applied layers of acrylic color tubes, yellow ochre, turquoise and green and blended using a baby wipe.
Later took out the gears stencil from Kaisercraft and mini bricks from crafters template and added some textures on the canvas randomly. used acrylic paints too on the stencils and stuck torn CC in some place.
I stamped the TH visual artistry stamp on the novel page and tore it and made it the focal point here with the sentiment from Kaisercraft too.
Th weathered clock with music stamp on it and some buttons stuck randomly completes the canvas. I have also stamped my husbands birth date for that extra special feel!
There are random textures and stamping on the sides, top and bottom of the canvas for an alround effect.
I hope he likes it...
Well, do let me know what you think about this.
Thanks so much for stopping by...
Until then,
Happy Crafting and Re cycling,
