Canvas Art

I made this hinged mini canvas Triptych for my daughter who loves to dance.  I used some of the techniques I found on the Tim Holtz Journey DVD.

Supplies Used

  • 4 x 4 prepared canvas
  • Distress Inks
  • Versamark
  • Copper embossing powder
  • Grungepaper die cut with Tim Holtz Bigz dies and pre cut grungeboard shapes
  • Glossy accents
  • Charm
  • Flower made from fantasy fibre cut with tattered floral Bigz die
  • 2 Small hinges
  • Beeswax


  • Sponge various colours of distress paint over the canvas including the edges.  Wet a sponge but don't wring out and blend the colour over the canvas
  • lightly touch Versamark to the edges and heat emboss with copper powder to give a distress look 
  • Brush with melted Beeswax all over to give a nice covering
  • colour the embellishments and coat with glossy accents, leave to dry - sprinkle with glitter or sparkle dust if you want at this stage
  • join the pieces with tiny hinges before you attach the embellishments
  • use Glossy accents to stick on the elements, flowers and charms
  • Display

You could always join the pieces with chain or similar and have them hanging down for a piece of wall art.  Hope you like this it was fun to do x
