Hi all. I am up on the Creative Embellishment's blog with some wall hangings that I made for my craftroom. Every time I pass by my light switch cover in the craft room, it brings a smile to my face. I used it as inspiration for this project. The base of this project are probably my some of my most favorite chippie pieces ever.
I cut a piece of chipboard to fit inside the steampunk gear frame and then layered on small, medium, and large chippie gears. The die is so intricate that it wasn't necessary, but I love the definition. I couldn't pass up the opportunity to dig out my loose parts and propellers. I painted the whole thing in black paint and then sprayed with different colors of Lindy's Stamp Gang.
I layered on some Marion Smith papers and then stamped with the distressed brick stamp and the distressed script stamp to add to the back ground. I added embossing powder around the edges. I painted the inspire word set with black paint and added some patina gilder's paste. Then I had to include these awesome new dressform chippies. If you look closely you can see how detailed they are with scrolls. LOVE. I sprayed them with the same sprays I used on the frame.
