Heart Hill – 3D Canvas Collage

Heart Hill – 3D Canvas Collage

SOLD

Other artwork available for purchase at Art Creations by Vicky

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.

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.

Dimensions: 10.0″ x 8.0″ x 2.0″

Steampunk Assemblage Art… with a touch of Alice in Wonderland. 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’ve added a bit of whimsey with the word tag “Curiouser and Curiouser” from the famous tale. Look closely and you will see approximately 100 embellishments – both vintage and new – as well as dozens of metal beads.

On a 14.0″ x 11.0″ stretched canvas, the depth of this piece is 1.75″. The background has multiple coats and spritzes of paint with stenciled textured designs, hundreds of tiny beads, and rust paste providing additional dimension. Multiple layers of embellishments are then added to complete this 3D collage.

Vintage elements include coin charms, adding machine keys, chess knight bracelet link, bits of two beaded purses, jello mold, 2 types of chain, pill bottle, speaker, lock, various metal mechanisms, buttons, numerous 1980s jewelry makings, bracelet leaves, and beads.

Newer pieces complete this pure steampunk look with items such as gears, clock face, mortar tie, metal flowers, bottle cap, rabbit head, tin heart, winged heart, cabochons, word tag “Curiouser and Curiouser”, watch buckle, gnome face, frame, miniature chess piece, flower face, juggling pin, binoculars, grapes, leaves, bolt head, wood rings, metal bell, wood half round, buttons, and metal beads.

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: 14.0″ x 11.0″ x 1.75″

This 12.0″ x 4.0″ Assemblage Canvas tells us that “Possibility begins with imagination.” And the imagination can run wild with crowned wings, hearts, roses, and even gears for a touch of steampunk. This particular size is especially popular as a unique accent piece for your wall – it’s lovely displayed alone or works beautifully in a wall arrangement.

The depth of this piece is 1.50″. The background is textured with stenciled modeling paste and a length of cheesecloth. A number of paints, spritzes, and waxes were then added before finishing off with 34 embellishments and dozens of tiny beads.

Embellishments include word band, two crowns, winged symbol, leaves of various sizes, two hearts, beads, gears, cabochon, cone, paper/fabric roses, and old hors d’oeuvres forks.

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.

Bird on a Branch

Bird on a Branch

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.

Wings Surround Me

Wings Surround Me

The feel of deep blue without being dark – that was the idea lurking in my mind’s eye as I started preparing the background for this unusual taste of steampunk wall art. While steampunk elements can be found throughout the piece, I leaned towards creating a sense of overall beauty rather than the more functional feel of steampunk. Result – a beautiful Steampunk Assemblage Canvas!

I chose to mix deep blue and a lighter blue silver with bronze tones for a foundation textured with stenciled modeling paste, adding highlights of color as I layered elements (found objects) – both vintage and new. The “DISCOVERIES” word charm seemed to be the perfect finishing touch. It measures 14.0” x 11.0” x 1.375”.

This piece contains approximately 200 found objects plus hundreds of smaller and medium beads. Vintage found objects include: toy piece, beads, buttons, numerous jewelry makings, and 3D wood shapes. Newer items include: flower face, word band, bracelet links, raven, rabbit head, crown, Vitruvian man, leaves, cabochons, wings, winged heart, gears, chess piece, branch, hearts, hand, clock, and various metal embellishments.

Original Steampunk Art – Two for One Steampunk Canvases

Original Steampunk Art – Two for One Steampunk Canvases

 

SOLD

Other artwork available for purchase at Art Creations by Vicky

This original steampunk work of art consists of two canvases that make one piece. On two 11″ x 14″ stretched canvases, overall measurements of the work (when you include a 1″ space between the two canvases) are 23″ wide by 14″ high. It’s 3D assemblage art at its best with a background comprised of multiple coats and spritzes of paint with stenciled textured designs and an overall depth of 1.50″. It is sold as a pair.

It seems that I love tiny details and this pair of assemblage canvases proves that point. When I finished this work, I knew I had included many pieces but was surprised to see it contains over 300 embellishments! I usually try to list the embellishments in my assemblage work but this time, I’ll share the highlights…

Let’s start with the vintage found objects. Behind the central design is facial netting from a woman’s hat circa 1950-60. The clock face is vintage as well as the clock gear and inner workings. Other vintage pieces include a mechanical tool pin, an unknown metal tool piece, adding machine keys, typewriter keys, links from two bracelets, metal beads – large, medium, and small, 12V bulb and socket, another 12V bulb, various plastic jewelry elements, buttons, washers, electric wire, hors d’oeuvres fork, earrings, glass oblong bead, and brooch.

The new charms/embellishments/found objects include metal bird, black bird, glass stones, propeller, wings – both large and small, steampunk bird, winged key, mosaic tiles, flying heart, gears of all types and sizes, stars, paper/fabric roses, branches, bow, hinge and latch set, buttons, large decorative beads, pocket watch form, acorns, bark, quote charm stating “reality has limits, imagination is boundless”, and various metal embellishments.

There are attached hangers for wall hanging. Although most of my Assemblage Art pieces can be framed, I don’t suggest framing this steampunk pair. Embellishments hang over the edges as part of the intricate design.

SOLD

Dimensions: Hung as a pair as shown 23″ x 14″ x 1.50″. Hung separately 14″ x 11″ x 1.50″
