Tutorial Thursday - Steampunk Mixed Media Journal Page

Good morning!! It's Sandie here and today I am sharing a mixed media journal entry I made recently. In line with this week's Inspiration theme I am using left over pieces of the Steampunk Shadow Box Kit, the Steampunk Frames and Shapes and some Steampunk Clock die cuts. The sentiment is from the NEW Beautiful Day Sentiments

I started out by layering on some gesso on the page and quickly drying it with a heat gun. I then adhered some Steampunk Clocks around the page and applied another layer of gesso. On top of that I added some texture with stencils and modelling paste. I repeated the process with cogs from the Steampunk Shadowbox Kit and the Steampunk Frames & Shapes

For background colour I used Dylusions Sprays - Crushed Grape and Dirty Martini, drying with a heat gun in between applications. I then added some Chestnut Brown and Wine & Roses Silks over the raised areas. Once it had dried I applied a thick coat of Transparent Viva Crackling Colour over random areas on the cogs

I stamped out the sentiment and cut it up with a scissors. I used a sharpie paint pen to outline it and adhered it to the layout. Then I rubbed some colour over it to blend it in. 

Finally I added some white dots on the cogs with a white paint pen. 

Happy crafting!
