Hello my happy crafters. I'm back with another steampunk piece. This time a letter R.
Unlike my last Steampunk piece where i used only Lindy's sprays this time i used Rust paste.... Enjoy
I started out by covering the whole thing with black gesso and was intending in covering all the embellishments with black gesso but decided to cover it all it white texture paste. I attached resins, cogs, an old bag buckle, chipboards, and flowers.
I covered the piece in white texture paste then used Finnabair icing paste (mystic Turquoise). I love the amazing shimmer this paste has.
I then used Prima marketing Opal Magic (rose-bleu). At this point i was hoping to go with a rustic french feel but i wasn't happy with the look so i continued to add colour with Lindy's sprays and used the prima marketing rust paste trio. I started with the dark brown, then the red and high lighted with the yellow.
I added a tone of Lindy's spray (starburst sweet violet purple teal) and (moon shadow mist Treasure island aqua). I also added some Kaiserkrafy paper blooms (grape). I also continued to work in the rust paste. Going back over all the rusted areas with the same process as previously mentioned.
I then decided to rust paste Everything. I left patches of colour so i could highlight with the sweet velvet. I sprayed this colour onto my messy mat and used a soft brush to dab the colour onto desired places. I love this colour, that amazing teal colour just pops on a dark back ground.
I absolutely adore how this turned out. Adding the rust paste to all of the embellisments was definitely a fantastic idea. I hope you like this project as much as i did creating it. Below is a list of products available in store. www.randomarts.com.au
Hello everybody !
I am here with my new canvas by moodboard.
I started with ligth paste, stencil and spatula. after the paste had dried, I painted the canvas with gess
Chipboard I painted with pink acrylic paint.
Several places I panted with sprayes in pink color.
Than I layered chipboards and cut out pictures on the canvas.
I painted places around and under chipboards with metallic paints in pink colours of course.
I finished with glitter varnish and I added more glitter on several places.

I'm back today with a little mini canvas, steampunk style. My favourite!
I've used some mitform castings, a resin frame and a wooden word: Awesome. From the random arts shop. And some little bits and pieces from my stash.
Don't you just love that squid!!!
I started to colour my mini canvas with crackle paint aged mahogoy. I had this in my stash. Make sure you put a thick layer is you want bigger cracks. (yes i know how this sounds) Remember, the more paint, the bigger the cracks.
i let this dry over night as using a heat tool doesn't work. Then i went in with some lindy's sprays. I used some purple and red tones. To match the mahogony.
Then it was time to colour the decoration pieces. First i covered everything with black gesso. This, to make everything the same colour and give more depth. Then i sprayed everything with the same sprays and used some waxes to accent the reliëfs and make it a bit more shiny.
Now it's time to glue everything down. I use my glue gun. But if you are more patiënt (:P) you can use matt medium for example.
Before i glue it down i Always lay everything down to check where exactly i want it. After i everything was glued down, i went back in with some wax to make some areas like the edges stand out a bit more. And this is the end result!

Hey there crafty friends!
I hope you are well and keeping safe.
I am here to share a new layout with you, designed for Random Arts and inspired by this month's Moodboard challenge which is a pretty vintage pink & brown colour pallet.
The card stock I used had the perfect tones for this month's mood board, I simply added a bit of stencilling with white texture paste to it.
I used a template for one of the card stock pieces and once cut, before adhered to the other, I tucked some corrugated cardboard between the 2 pieces of card stock, so it peeps through and separates the two.
I tucked some cheesecloth under and around my photo before arranging my embellishments.
I coloured the resin frame, chipboard & other resins to give them more of a 'vintage' look to match the mood board colour scheme.
The title was decorated using stone drops, which when applied gives it a great dimensional look.
I finished off this layout by adding micro beads, glitter and pearl brads.
Thank you for stopping in, I hope you liked my latest layout for Random Arts, you will find most products used on their online shop.
If you have some time and want to enter this month's challenge, you can do so here. Remember there is a $25 voucher to won or a guest designer spot!
Until next time - happy crafting!
