Welcome Steampunk friends! Our February challenge at Sandee and amelie's Steampunk Challenges is Anything Goes! Work in your steampunk, industrial, mixed media style and enter our challenge. What's better on a cold winter day/night than snuggling in and crafting?
...maybe a bit radioactive, maybe a bit glow in the dark...time is often measured by clocks that glow.
I had some papers from a paint pour this summer where I was trying out neon colors. I stamped over it with the Clock Collage from Stampendous to fill in the white areas.
Then, I painted those areas in with Quinacridone Gold.
Here's a glimpse back at my paint pour this summer, from the set up...
...to the papers I poured the excess onto. These are the papers I used for my ATCs.
Backgrounds are finished.
Now, it's time to prepare the chipboard. (Aren't these pulleys cool from Boozybear?) I started with a Metallic Copper layer, then dabbed the other colors on top a few times until I was happy.
Now comes the fun part, building up some layers with the pulleys and metal clock pieces. I also added in tiny bits from old watches. On this one, I added a bit of an old watch strap too. I chose time related words and phrases to each one.
I had to get a heart in there for Valentine's Day this month!
Watch Your Time
These were a lot of fun to make! I hope you'll join us this month and create something that gives you joy.
Many thanks to our awesome sponsors who keep the cogs and gears turning at SASPC!
