I started off Mod Podging some crumpled tissue paper onto the canvas then added texture paste, acrylic paint and mist. I couldn't get the colors quite right so I ran to my local scrapbook store, where my lovely friend Marie set me up with a package of gelatos, which helped me get the background I had in mind. The chippies were treated with a variety of materials; the balloon and chain were done with aged copper embossing powder, which really brought out the awesome shapes of the pieces.
I just love this combination of chain and gears, it's so steampunk-y cool!
These great chipboard pieces inspired me to finally cut into the steampunk paper that I had been hoarding forever, and make a little something for my scrap room door, hurray!
Thanks for the visit and have an awesomely creative day!
