For this blog hop I created with the Steampunk Gears Chipboard Album, Vintage Dress Form Chipboard, Steampunk Gear Set Chipboard, Pipe Dreams Large and Small sets.
I used several several acrylic paints by Plaid Crafts including black Chalk Paint, Mod Podge Matte and Mod Podge Spray On.
I created the sand texture using Plaid's Mod Podge Matte and sand. I applied onto the corrugated page and after it dried, I dry brushed Jute, Dark Brown and Black acrylic paints.
To create the heavy rust, I brushed on Mod Podge Matte different spots of the gears, then sprinkled cinnamon, allowed to dry, then added a second coat. After it dried, I lightly sponged on the Jute, Dark Brown and Black acrylic paints. Once the paint dried, I added patina and bronze wax for a metallic finish. I used this method throughout the album.
I added plenty of pockets and journal spots throughout the album. Lots of inked and distressed edges too. I used Mod Podge Spray On to adhere the pattern papers onto the chipboard pages.
There are lots of gears and pipes throughout the pages.
Thank you for visiting.
You nailed the color and texture for the rusty metals! I never would have thought to use cinnamon! Such a great project- love all the pockets and sprinkling of gears and pipes!
Your work is AMAZING. I need to get my hands on the pipe & dress form chipboard because I got some ideas in my head that I need to bring to life thanks to the inspiration I got from your creativity with this project.
