For this canvas it is 8inch by 8 inches I have used Graphic45 Miss Curiousity shoppe I have dsitressed them all then tore and curled in back then I layered some other sheets from the collection underneath so you weren't seeing the canvas
I then layered the same sheet underneath the clock and curled both side back

Layered the clock on top

Over the top I layered a Tim Holtz clock die cut which has been embossed with a number of metallic looking embossing powders
