This project is for Mixed Media Monthly where the theme this month is "Believe".
Here is the graphic for our challenge this month
Our fantastic sponsor is Boozy Bear, who sells an amazing selcection of stencils and chipboard elements. These are the products I used for my canvas: a stencil called "123" and two steampunk themed chipboard pieces, - "Spin Around the Clock" and "Gear Wings".
Here's a quick step by step of how this came together:
I used two pieces of steampunk style paper from an old collection of DCWV papers I had in my stash, I sanded around the edges to reveal the white core and to distress them a bit.
This is the smaller of the two pieces that I used to stencil over with my stencil and some Distress Ink in Ground Espresso.
Next I selected my chipboard pieces, I broke the Spin Around the Clock one in two, to make it fit onto my canvas with the composition I had in mind. I wanted to give the pieces a metallic look, so rubbed Versamark ink all over them and then embossed them with Stampendous Ancient Silver embossing powder.
I wanted them to look more like corroded metal so pounced Pitchblack alcohol ink over them.
I chose one of Tim Holtz's paper dolls to be the focal point for my piece and then all I had to do was put it all together.
The Merry Christmas piece is a Calico Craftpart and the word believe was computer generated.
I added a little bit of shadow around my steampunk angel using a Stabilo All pencil, fixed a little Tim Holtz star embellishment to his forhead and I was done.
