I have been to a few art journalling classes over the past year or so. They are actually held monthly, but due to other commitments I can’t always make it (well I could if they were held in the afternoon, but they are always first thing in the morning). Each class involves working on a […]
This is another one of my vintage digital photos, I call her Steampunk Fly Girl. I suspect she was actually dressed this way for riding in a motor car, but it looks a bit like a vintage flying helmet so I thought I would make her a pilot. And the wings were a finishing touch […]
One of my friends had his 50th recently, and I made a grungy steampunk card for the occasion with metallic inks, aged patina paint, copper layering papers and an awesome large stamp called Mister Bright Ideas by Darkroom Door.
My brother and sister-in-law live in London. When they came to visit last year, my s-i-l liked some of my mixed media artwork (which she hadn’t seen before), particularly the floral steampunk one I did at the class with Finnabair. So during their visit I got hold of a black and white photo from their […]
Over the Easter weekend I held a card stall at a gaming convention, an alternative to running a game as I had been unwell and didn’t have time to write it. I didn’t do my usual range of cards, instead focusing on a range that reflected the themes of the games – fantasy, horror, historical, […]
This was for D’s sister, her birthday was in June. He was after something ‘not girly’, so I had to have a think about it, and what papers and stamps I have. I went with a steampunk themed card using Graphic 45’s Steampunk Debutante collection.
I waited until the people I sent them to got these, but they should have been received by now: Steampunk Christmas Trees Several versions, all made up with a big key stamp as the trunk and cogs and gears as the branches. I really liked this design, was very happy with it. A wooden […]
This was for my friend B’s birthday, which was celebrated last night in a Doctor Who themed party. Cream cardstock folded to a square. Piece of Bo Bunny ‘Timepiece’ Paper on the left, and Coor’dinations Chocolate Box cardstock embossed with Tim Holtz Steampunk Texture Fades embossing folder, sanded back to reveal the core colour, both […]
This is a steampunk style card I made using the Graphic 45 ‘Old Curiosity Shop’ papers. Was for a male friend, and I was really happy with the final result. Cream A5 cardstock folded to A6. Background stamped with honeycomb pattern and also crackle stamp in Aged Mahogany Distress Ink. Two images cut out from […]
I made this when I was playing around with vintage photo distress ink before Christmas (when I was waiting for my order of stamps to arrive). Base white card edged with vintage photo ink, then stamped with script stamp. Gears stamped in top and bottom corners. On a separate piece of card, colour sponged lightly […]
