How to make a steam punk frame with Dew Drops

Halloween or anytime is a great time to make a steam punk themed frame!  For this frame I used a wooden frame from the one dollar store and went from there!  I hope you enjoy this project. 

 

 

Ingredients:

 

  • Dollar Wooden Frame
  • Gears from Mike Deakin Art
  • Flower and Frame trim – Crafty Inspirations
  • Dew Drops – black (I used mine from the Classified Bottle!)
  • Black Matte Gesso – US Art Supply
  • Art Alchemy Wax – Metallique White Gold and Antique Brilliance Mystic Turquoise Prima
  • Liquid adhesive
  • Flat brushes – for dry brush technique

 

Directions:

 

  • Paint the frame and all components on both sides with Matte Black Gesso.  If you need more than one coat, let dry thoroughly between coats.

 

 

  • Trial your placement of embellishments

 

 

  • Adhere all chip board embellishments, as desired.

 

 

  • Use a dry brushing technique with waxes of your color choice.  Remember to use the smallest amount possible for this technique.  I wipe my brush on a paper towel and then use it.  Your brush should be held as flat as possible to the surface and use the lightest touches possible.  You can’t subtract paint with this technique, but you always can add more!

 

 

  • When you are satisfied with the coloring, add Dew Drops embellishments, with liquid adhesive.

 

 

  • Let dry completely!
  • Your steam punk frame is complete!

Junk Journal Page

Hi everyone! Diana here with another fun project for you.  Today I’ve created a junk journal/journal page to share. This started out as being a large flower that I was going to add a stick to for a plant decoration and then a journal page was born!

Step 1: Cut out desired shape from solid colored cardstock of choice. Next you’ll choose another color or patterned paper to back the flower. Adhere them together and trim around edges.

Step 2: Use either distress ink in vintage photo or another brown you have on hand and add it to the image to give a little texture.

Step 3: Use the same brown ink on a 8 1/2 x 11″ piece of white cardstock.

Step 4: adhere the large cut out image to the left hand side of your page and trim off extras. You can then add some of the extra pieces to the corners as I did.

Step 5: Choose your embellishments and start decorating your page. I used dew drops as my main embellishment and choose some stamp sets and fussy cut the images once I stamped them.

SUPPLIES:

Robin’s Nest Dew DropsWinter retreat dew dropsdark vanilla dew drops & chocolate dew drops

Stamp sets: Close To My Heart

Ink: nectarine, fern, ruby, glacier, and archival black (Close To My Heart), vintage photo distress oxide ink
