Steampunk Wall Art – A Collage of Found Objects

Steampunk Wall Art – A Collage of Found Objects

The 20″ x 10″ size provides great versatility for placement on a wall.

Steampunk Assemblage Art… in an oft-requested larger size – this time a 20″ x 10″ canvas. My steampunk version of Assemblage Art features the industrial and Victorian aspects of this engrossing science fantasy sub-genre leading to some rather fascinating collages. This time I’m featuring ancient and mythical symbolism with elements such as the Celtic knot, Pegasus, yin and yang, lotus flower, hamsa hand, the sun, the eye, and more if you’re curious. Look closely and you will see approximately 150 embellishments – both vintage and new – as well as dozens of metal beads.

Pegasus, the Eye, and the “Breathe” tag are just a few of the unusual elements.

Assemblage Art on Canvas begins with the background – it’s not just paint. I start with multiple coats and spritzes of paint on stenciled dimensional paste and pieces of crocheted doilies. I then add more spritzes of highlights and finish off with Finnabair’s waxes (which dry to a hard finish). Multiple layers of embellishments are then added to complete this 3D collage to bring it to an overall depth of 2.0″.

Vintage elements include adding machine keys, pearl collar pieces, old bottle glass, metal ornate focal point, beaded necklace, buttons, beads, ancient building (old chess piece), and 1980s jewelry makings.

Newer pieces complete this steampunk look with items such as gears, various beads, bird, brick ties, coins, cabochons, leaves, steampunk heart, buttons, Vitruvian man, wreath berries, clock gears, tree, diamond patterns, hamsa hand, pendants, bracelet sections, eye, “Breathe” word tag, Pegasus, tree trunk, clock round frame, clock face, rabbit, stopwatch case, ancient calendar, sun, metal beads, and various other metal embellishments,

Hangers are attached and, while I prefer the no-frame look, this is ready for framing. This piece will also display nicely on a large table easel.

Dimensions: 20.0″ x 10.0″ x 2.0″

Heart Wall Art – a 3D Canvas Collage

Heart Wall Art – a 3D Canvas Collage

An antique tin heart mold takes center stage in this Assemblage Canvas art piece. I’m referring to this as 3D collage on canvas – this isn’t just a painting. You’ll find a total of six hearts within this design that includes more than 100 embellishments plus dozens of mini beads. This 12″ x 12″ artwork was created piece by piece as I gradually layered the embellishments, ending with an overall depth of 2.0″.

Texture also takes a starring role with a background built first with stenciled designs utilizing dimensional paste that is then covered with multiple coats of paint, spritzes, and waxes.

When describing the actual elements you will find in one of my Assemblage canvases, I divide the embellishments into two categories – vintage found objects (20+ years in age) and newer elements.

Here those vintage found objects include a tin heat mold, pickle fork, two different beaded necklaces, ancient building (chess piece), crocheted collar piece, pearl collar sections, heart pendant, grape bracelet charms, buttons, 1980s jewelry makings, brass button, brooch, rhinestone button, and various beads

Newer elements include resin flower, gypsy head, wings, various leaves, branch charms, heart feather charm, paper butterfly, paper roses, wood round and cap, wreath berries, heart charm filigreed metal shapes, hummingbird, cabochons, floral bracelet link, hot air balloon, heart bracelet link, wood heart, and various other metal embellishments.

Hangers are attached and, while I prefer the no-frame look, this Assemblage Art piece is ready for framing. It will also display nicely on an easel.

A Lady’s Moon – 3D Wall Art

A Lady’s Moon – 3D Wall Art

With a whole lot of beauty and a lady sitting on the moon, this Assemblage Canvas exudes a definite romantic feminine feel… with a little whimsey, of course. I’ve named it “A Lady Moon” and love that we have a “lady in the moon” rather than the traditional man. Measuring 8.0″ by 8.0″ with a depth of 1.50″, the background is textured with stenciled modeling paste and finished off with a number of paints, spritzes, and metallic waxes. Embellishments are then adhered to the canvas to form a three-dimensional design.

You’ll find more than 50 embellishments plus dozens of tiny metal beads in this piece of Assemblage art. Older elements (found objects) include an oval cameo base, beaded necklace sections, brooch, button, earring, square bead, and various other beads. Newer elements include the lady moon stamping, paper roses, numerous metal embellishments, cabochons, bracelet section, the tiny beads, and pieces of a berry wreath.

Hangers are attached and, while I prefer the no-frame look, this Assemblage Art piece is ready for framing. It will also display nicely on an easel.

Industrial Steampunk with a Bit of Heart

Industrial Steampunk with a Bit of Heart

In the center sits a handmade polymer clay heart that is surrounded by approximately 85 embellishments. Vintage elements include sections of a pearl purse, paper bottle top, buttons, bracelet base, beads, earrings, purse clasp, bobbin, strip of a beaded purse, bracelet links, and necklace pieces. Newer elements include winged peace sign, metal beads, 2 clock faces, propeller, word tag stating DESTINY, starred round, bird, cabochons, pop bottle cap, stars, and many metal elements such as flower, tree, gears, diamonds, squares, keyhole, wings, arrow, claw, and crown.

At the start of this Assemblage creation, I knew two things – the basic color scheme of turquoise, green, and purple (which evolved) and that I wanted a more romantic piece this time around. And then I started building to see where it would go and now find myself in love with the end product! I’m calling it Heart Hill as the focal point brings this piece to 2.0″ in depth which gives this 10.0″ x 8.0″ canvas a highly defined 3D feel with multiple layers of embellishments.

Texture takes a starring role in this Assemblage Canvas piece with a background built first from multiple coats and spritzes of paint and waxes that were then layered with several stencil designs utilizing dimensional paste, burlap, and antique lace.

Just what is Assemblage? It’s the creation of a larger art piece from smaller objects. Best described as a 3D collage on canvas, my assemblage art pieces contain numerous vintage “found objects” as well as newer embellishments. This Assemblage Canvas contains around 75 found objects or newer elements.

Here those vintage found objects include the antique lace, necklace pieces, buttons, 1980s jewelry makings, hanging plastic crystal, porcelain rose, wooden leaf, and papier-mache bead.

Newer elements include patched heart, filigreed metal round and leaf, paper roses, various metal leaves, beads, cabochons, styrofoam ball, bark, decorative beads, metal flower, word charm, metal branches, and wooden round.

It all started with the bird on the branch and ended up as a romantic spring abstract in Italy of course (notice the Leaning Tower of Pisa?). Working with a new color palette, I started with blues and a bottle green and finished with a background that borders on deep turquoise.

Texture takes a starring role in this 12″ x 12″ Assemblage Canvas piece with a background built from multiple coats and spritzes of paint and waxes over several stencil designs utilizing dimensional paste. I wanted to evoke roses growing on a brick wall. I then added further definition to the background by adding a large filigreed leaf, a vintage lace collar piece, and pieces of an old pearl collar.

And then came the embellishments! This Assemblage Canvas contains around 75 found objects or newer elements plus dozens of metal beads. Its depth is 1.75″.

Just what is Assemblage? It’s the creation of a larger art piece from smaller objects. Best described as a 3D collage on canvas, my assemblage art pieces contain numerous vintage “found objects” as well as newer embellishments. 

Here those vintage found objects include the bird in flight, several bracelet links, various 1980s jewelry makings, pearl collar, beaded flowers, the Leaning Tower of Pisa, large heart, hors-d’oeuvres fork, a chunk of an old resin frame, cameo setting, felt rose, and lace collar piece.

Newer elements include several filigreed metal pieces, winged heart, crowns, hearts, buttons, metal flowers, various leaves, paper roses, wings, emblem, cabochon, flower beads, bracelet link, palette, arrow, bird, cones, rabbit, and metal beads.
