Yeah, I’ve finally finished it… My steampunk inspired Christmas Tree!

I’ve made this one using the same techniques as for the first two trees, but used black Gesso on the styrofoam cone and covered it with black lace. All decorations are different jewellry parts and scrapbooking stuff, and the Christmas gifts have all been opened, just the paper left…

Assorted jewellry parts and scrapbooking decorations hanging from brass chains.

The base is covered with sheet music, I used Viva Décor Croco Paint and Ferro Paint for the structures, and yes, I’ve opened all the gifts and left the wrapping paper…

This one is a bit smaller, but I have used the same techniques and materials as for the first one.

The lace has been colored in using Tattered Angels Glimmer Mists, the star in the top is made by using a hand punch, two layers joined with 3D-foam, and then covered in Stickles.

…or something like that!

This is what I’ve been up to these past days. A styrofoam cone covered with lace, mounted on a piece of wood and then on a papier maché box. Added some patterned paper to the box, some glitter-flitter-spray to the tree, snow paint around the trunk and ice pearl laquer beneath the tree. Some gifts and a star, and it’s ready to go!

4 canvases 15×15 cm, colored with Dylusions and Adirondack Colorwash. I then added the clockwork – in the middle with Croco Paint Gold and the pieces in the corners with Embossing Paste. A few Fragments with patterned paper underneath, stamping and Croco Paint Clear on top, I also added some Distress Inks to make the cracks more visible.  The keyhole is molded using paperclay and painted in Metallic Gold. All paper embellishments are cut with a BossKut Gazelle, stamped and distressed. The keys are made of wood, colored slightly with Metallic Gold. Some stickles (of course!), a few pearls

Adirondack Color Wash and Dylusions sprays from CropStop (US) and Craft Barn (UK), Croco Paint from Craft Barn, the mould from Clay Lady, all other materials from Panduro.

Album from scratch

An album made from scratch using covers and plastic inserts from Zutter, stamps from Prima (border) and Panduro, flowers and other embellishments from my cabinets… Did you know that my dad, granddad, great granddad and great great granddad ran a junkyard? That explains my evergrowing stash of things that might come in handy, can be altered, or used in one way or another…

Take time to smell the roses

One of my new favorite stamps, from Chocolate Baroque. The rose with the script background and the text is a favvo combo! Paper butterfly cut and embossed with a Cuttlebug die (one of the few dies I have left), the tag and the swirl are cut with a BossKut Gazelle.  Flowers from Panduro and leaves from Prima.
