I felt like “steampunk” today, so let’s have some fun in that art journal:
I had that rusty industrial feeling today, it’s also quiet rainy outside and there’s a huge crane standing close to us, that makes a lot of noise. As I opened my eyes in the morning that huge monster looked back at me steaming (warm summer morning + cooling morning rain = steam on metal). So I had to put it all together and make a sort of a fun of it. I took a piece of paper and colorized it with ecoline (burnt sienna and sand yellow). Gives pretty warm and rusty feeling.
I ran this piece through my steampunk embossing folder. Than I distressed it and gave it a color shine with vintage photo distress ink. It looked okey, but still I wanted to have a more metallic feeling. So I took another piece of paper and through a metal patterned stencil I applied some modeling paste that I colorized with acrylic paint. Finally as I love layering for an additional layer I added a plate that I made with France Papillon’s barcode stamp and some liquid platinum embossing powder. I added some metal embellishments as well.
Now I needed my ‘steampunk beauty’, I used Tetewea from Daniel Torrente, isn’t she a beauty? I stamped her with archival ink and colored her with Lindy’s stamp gang’s color shot hibiscus rose. Of course I stamped also the text steampunk beauty with archival ink and colored it with distress ink.
I am sharing my steampunk beauty with Stampotique designer’s challenge: steampunk.
