It's All About Steampunk
I was thrilled when we teamed up with Want 2 Scrap this month and I received the Sprightly Sprockets Chipboard Album. I knew right away I wanted to do something with a Steampunk style to it and it had to have a lot of glitter because there's nothing better than a project with a lot of bling.
I chose to use these products:
From Art Glitter http://www.artglitter.com/
Monarch Microfine Opaque Glitter
Sunrise Ultrafine Opaque Glitter
Saddlebag Ultrafine Opaque Glitter
Challis Ultrafine Opaque Glitter
Crystal Ultrafine Transparent Glitter
Razzle Dazzle Glitter Kit
Spoon Man! Spoons:
Ultrafine Metal Tip:
8 1/2 x 11 Transparency Sheets:
Additional Items Needed:
Black acrylic paint, 2 paint brushes: 1 wide and 2 narrow, metallic paint (Mica Color Metallic Paint Set from UsArtQuest used) 1 piece of patterned paper, various colors of cardstock that match the Steampunk colors to cover chipboard pages, Steampunk themed stamps, acrylic stamp block, feathers, dry and wet adhesives
Begin by painting the front cover with the black acrylic paint and allow to dry. Choose some of the pages to adhere the card stock to and stamp some images onto those. Dress them up by adding some glitter to the images. Leave some pages blank and use some of the ideas below to dress them up.
Once the paint has dried, paint some of the gears using the metallic paint and allow those to dry.
