Art Journal Cover

Art Journal Cover with chipboard from Ginas Designs

Hi everyone, I have the front of my Art Journal to show you today. I have been taking part in a group on Facebook called Journal 52. Each week we get a prompt and make an art journal page using that prompt as inspiration. I have been thinking about art journaling for a wee while now and this kind of gave me a shove in the right direction. I have 4 pages inside this binder which I may or may not share over the next few weeks.

I glued the chipboard and letters onto the binder cover, added a layer of creased tissue paper and then applied gesso once it was all dry. I painted the whole thing with vintage photo distress paint and then scraped some broken china distress paint over the chipboard and letters using a sponge. I then applied gilding wax to the raised parts to define them again. The steampunk lady was decorated using Distress paint and embossing enamel and powder.

Steampunk Egg ATC

Egg Shaped Steampunk ATC

Over at ATCs and Cards with Attitude this week we have an Anything Goes Theme. The cogs frame comes from our sponsor Delicious Doodles this week and I added a few real ones that I had got a while back. I then used a new Papermania Capsule Collection DVD to print off the Urban digital stamps. I cut the butterfly one with the Spelbinders Sprightly Sprockets die that my kids got me for Mothers Day. The ATC is egg-shaped because it is for a swap I am taking part in over at Swap Bot that calls for this shape šŸ™‚

Steampunk Book and Valentines card

Steampunk Book

I’ve been having another play with my Tinkering with Steampunk CD from My Craft Studio and I have made a book with my Bind it All to hold my Zentangle Pattern steps. I painted some thick card (the packaging my Martha Stewart board came in) with black acrylic paint, once that was dry I added gold paint with a fairly dry brush to give it the antique look. I printed off some paper from the CD and made up the rosette with it and the tag is also from the CD.

Next I made a valentines card for hubby (its ok he doesn’t read my blog) This was pretty much a print – cut out and stick, all I added was some Kraft card and some tickets made using the Kanban stamps.

Tinkering with Steampunk

Frame using MCS Tinkering with Steampunk CD

Some time ago now I made myself a wall hanging for my craft space, a friend saw it last month and asked if I would make one for her daughter. I finally got around to making it today with a new CD that landed on my doorstep this morning, it is from My Craft Studio and it is called Tinkering with Steampunk. I love it, the images and papers are just SO cool. I made this 3d frame from it:

Frame using MCS Tinkering with Steampunk CD

I made the rose with Tim Holtz’s Tattered Florals die using one of the backgrounds from the CD which I inked and then spritzed with glimmer mist.
The tag and frame are from the CD and I added the quote, then glued some watch parts onto the image.

Really simple to create but I am SO pleased with the results that I may even make myself a new one, I can see me using this disc quite a bit in the near future.

I am going to enter it into the Craft your Passion,Ā  One Stop Craft Challenge and ABC Challenge as they all have a theme of Anything Goes
