Steampunk Inspiration with Trudi Harrison

"Steampunk Heart"

Hi Everyone,

Trudi back with you today sharing some more 2Crafty Inspiration.  I have been having lots of fun altering some of the new 2Crafty steampunk elements with Colour Blast mediums.

A combination of the new Medium and Small Chipboard Gears were added to a Prima Artifact and Relic Heart.  The chipboard gears that embellish were altered with Colour Shimmer Sprays; Dusty Charcoal, Leather and Deep Water.

The altered heart was created with idea of framing it as wall art.. but then another idea came to mind -
A 3D Altered Book from a Paper Mache Mini Album.
 With the altered heart used as embellishment for the front cover of the book along with lots of chipboard loveliness.  

"Good Fortunes For You"

Steampunk Corner 3 were attached to either side of the opening.  A Steampunk Heart sits over the top left hand corner of the opening with the previously altered heart attached over the top.  Small and Medium Steampunk Gears have been layered over the the Steampunk Corners along with trimmed pieces of Chain Lengths.

A Chained Circle Frame adds textural detail to the background.
The inside cover was embellished with Vintage Clock Hands and Steampunk Gears.  Dusty Charcoal, Deep Water and Leather Shimmer Sprays were used to alter the chipboard elements.

The inside 3D effect was created by sticking the pages of the book together and then removing the middle section with a craft knife.  
A Chain Circle Frame frames the decorative picture.  The movement of time in the picture reflected with a smaller Clock Face Frame and a combination of Steampunk Gears and Gears.
Shimmer Sprays were once again used to alter the chipboard - Leather with accents of Deep Water.
