Hi there , I'm here today with another project for Creative Expressions, this time it's Steampunk. I'm sad to say that I can't write this up with long explanations about how I made it so I thought I'd show you lots of pictures to inspire you .
This is created using a large shadow box, which I've decorated with lots of bits and pieces from Creative Expressions and my own stash of goodies .
When I create a shadow box I always think of it in terms of - back , middle and front. .
So I paint all the surfaces and add decorations to the back of the boxes , in this case stamped and embossed.
Then I work on filling the spaces . All the little bit of 'furniture ' are made out of mount board and painted .
The sparkly effect on the clock is created using a new product from CE called Granite Paste and the clock and pocket watch are some of the new POP EMS .
Even the flowers are decorated by making a paint out of Gilding Polish and painting them .
The little bottles are painted with gesso and the image stamped on black tissue paper and embossed with gold powder . The tissue can then be attached to the bottles with Matt medium .
I hôpe this has given you some ideas .
