'Steampunk Octopus' with Lisa Amiet


Hello 2Crafty lovers!
It's Lisa here today to share some inspiration with you.
I was lucky enough to recently attend a mixed media class
 with the oh so talented, and hilarious, Antonis Tzanidakis.

I learnt some fabulous techniques and created a gorgeous steampunk seahorse panel.
I have created this octopus panel with the same style and theme
 so that I can hang them in my art room.
For this panel, I used some of the fabulous new
2Crafty industrial steampunk designs. 

I am so happy with how this turned out that I just had to share it with you all!

2Crafty Products used:

I have used some of the awesome 'Industrial Pipes/Mechanics' that I have painted red,
and then used an antiquing paste to distress. 

I have also used some of the 'Steampunk Gears Medium' and 'Steampunk Gears Small',
that I have finished in either red or brown to suit the theme.

I have also used a couple of the 'Giant Gears' to use in my background,
also painted red and distressed.

I have also used some of the 'Industrial Light Bulbs' and 'Industrial Spring Set',
that I have finished with the same technique.

I am in love with these panels and I just love Antonis' style of mixed media,
if you can get to one of his classes I highly recommend it.
Along with the awesome new industrial designs,
the perfect combination of steampunk.

I hope that you like what I have created.

Until next time!
