STEAMY - Smeared and Smudged July Member Blog Hop

Hello everyone, and welcome to my first time participating in the monthly Smeared and Smudged member blog hop. Each month has a new challenge, and this month's challenge is STEAMY, to be interpreted any way you like.  Since this is my first time, I do not have any of the S&S stamps, but I hope you will like my steamy project all the same.  

I have been doing a lot of mixed media lately, and to keep up with my practice, I have made a steam punk style mixed media canvas for the hop today.  Complete instructions are included.  


Check out How to Create a Steamy 5x7 Canvas by Barbara Rankin on Snapguide.


I hope you have enjoyed looking at my project today.  Please take some time to look at the rest of the projects on today's hop.  I know you will not be disappointed.  Your next stop should be 
Stefanie's blog.

Thanks so much for stopping by, and I would love to hear what you think about the hop today.  


Have a wonderful, creative weekend.

  3. It was great to see how you built up the layers of this canvas - most of the time I just see the finished project and have no idea how to create a similar effect - this has given me the confidence to develop my skills in that direction (so thanks for that). Love the colour palette and the stamps you used - so much work has gone into this - brilliant blog hop project - thanks for sharing!!
