CCC3 Painted Industrial

Challenge #7 at Compendium of Curiosities is Painted Industrial (p.46), one of my favorites, because it leads perfectly into the steampunk style I love. The challenge for week four at Camp Scrap with May Flaum is to identify something you do that you love, and this is an example of what I love to create. This challenge is sponsored by Inspiration Emporium with many thanks. I started with a 7 Gypsies rubber band book, and painted the covers with distress paints.

Next step, "painted industrial"


Covers of my Gentleman's Journal.


Inside pages...

Well, it just so happens that the challenge at Simon Says Stamp is "J is for..." And since this is a Gentleman's Journal, I will also be sending it there.

Now, to find the right gentleman for the journal!



  1. Maura, your gent's journal is wonderful! Love the gears and marbled paper! The stamped pages are great too! Thank you so much for joining us in our metalicious challenge at CC3Challenge!!!

  2. I really love this journal! You did a great job with the watches and gears.

  3. Your journal is fabulous Maura...Love how you have cut out the clocks and gears for your book cover :)

  4. Maura...your journal is awesome! I love the background done with the distress paints. It's so muted and marbled and COOL! Your painted industrial technique on your gears and clock faces is beautifully done. I love how you've created such a cool design for the front of your journal by carefully cutting around selected areas of the embossed metal. Your stamped images on your interior pages really completes this very cool journal! Thanks for sharing your journal and your art with us at CC3C. <3 Candy

  5. That is amazing! I am not caught up with Camp Scrap classes yet,so no video reference for me yet, but that is definitely lift worthy.

  6. Loving your journal.
    I have an obsession for mini journals and this really fits the bill, gorgeous.
    Happy crafting, Angela x
