Altered Canvas Clock

Hello, my friends, happy Sunday! Today, I'd like to share my project
using some awesome products from Faber-Castell and you may check
all the quick steps and the supplies I used over at Faber-Castell blog.

Here are some steps to show you how I made this project.
The burlap canvas I used here is 6" X 6" so I cut the water color paper into 5.5" X 5.5".

After roughly drawing a cupcake sketch, I started to color it with Gelatos.

Use darker color Gelatos to shade and outline the image and background.

I used Gesso to soften the background and image colors and randomly stamped some text
using Stamper's Big Brush Pen on the edges. Then I stamped the sentiment on the white card
stock, cut and pasted it on the cupcake image.

After pasting this piece of water color paper on the canvas using Gel Medium, I
used Glaze to cover the surface. After it was dry, I installed the colck set on the canvas.

Here is the final look of the altered canvas clock.

I also share my project at Creative Everyday, Artists in Blogland, and Paint Party Friday.
Hope you'll get a chance to create or alter something using these fun
techniques and the awesome Faber-Castell products. See you next time!
