Steampunk Mixed Media Canvas

For my Globecraft Piccolo project today, I have my second try at a mixed media canvas.  I began with the wonderful Mini Steampunk Airship Kit.  Using Vintage Black, Vintage Copper and Vintage Gold Piccolo Enamel, I heat embossed the various pieces of the ship.  I only wanted to use 1/2 of the airship for my project as I wanted one side to be flat for adhering to my canvas.  I added a couple of extra gears for more dimension inside the globe.  And I added a Steampunk Airship Accent to the nose of my ship.  I set that aside. 

Next I went to work on my 9 x 12 inch canvas.  I used a huge amount of Piccolo's on this canvas.  It was great fun to mix them up and layer them.  I am not sure I can list them all but will try at the end of this post.  I started with the two bubble backgrounds.  I added three mesh borders from Cheery Lynn Designs and then just filled in all the other spots.  The bottle cap, flowers and clothespin are the only other items that are not Piccolos.

I used my Copic airbrush to add color.  I did not have any shimmer paints in the colors I wanted.  I did add some shimmer mist over the background when I was done coloring to add a bit of sparkle.  The last step was to add my Airship and I found out that I had not chosen wisely with my embossing powders.  But I took my Copic marker that I used to airbrush the copper color and colored over the embossing powder on the frame of the ship so it now matches.
