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.

Industrial Steampunk with a Bit of Heart

Industrial Steampunk with a Bit of Heart

Although it’s full of steampunk vibes, this Assemblage Art on Canvas has a definite industrial feel to it as well. Assemblage describes the process of creating a larger art piece from smaller objects. Best described as a 3D collage on canvas, it contains numerous vintage “found objects” as well as newer embellishments.

Measuring 10.0″ square with a depth of 1.5″, the background is textured with stenciled modeling paste and finished off with a number of paints, spritzes, and metallic waxes. Primary colors here are shades of green and copper accented with a bit of red.  

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.

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.

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.

Note: The use of descriptive words such as brass and pearl are just that – I can’t verify that the beads are brass and assume the pearls are only decorative.

Blooming Creativity

Blooming Creativity

Creativity is the theme of this assemblage art piece on canvas. With its many flowers and a word tag that reads “creativity (n): the ability to use or explore the imagination to design and express ideas”, I’ve named it Blooming Creativity. I found its center flower at an estate sale – a chandelier embellishment. Its previous owner had made rather extravagant chandeliers and I was lucky to pick up a number of such pieces for my assemblage art work.

Assemblage is all about making a larger art piece from a number of smaller pieces. My assemblage work is on canvas rather than free standing.

Found vintage items include: buttons, trim, and chandelier flower. New items include (but not limited to): floral cabochons, paper roses, cutout heart, gauze fabric, gears, leaves, clock face, metal embellishments, and creativity quote charm. The polymer clay heart embossed with script was fashioned by yours truly. The background has multiple coats and spritzes of paint with a crackle design as well as stenciled modeling paste. The depth of the overall design is 1.50″.

Attached hangers for wall hanging. Although I prefer the no-frame look, this is ready for framing. I occasionally frame an Assemblage Art piece and the end result can be stunning. This piece will also display nicely on an easel.
