Tesla Inspired Wall Art

another prima wooden box

This was created for a friend’s Husband.

I absolutely love the wooden boxes Prima put some of their accessories in now they are fantastic to recycled into these little art pieces.

I covered this one in Tissue tape, then Matt Multi Medium followed by some Alcohol ink. I think you will agree it comes up a treat.

Then it was a matter of playing around and choosing bits to see what would go where and then sticking it all down.

Of course most of this is Idea – ology with a few watch parts and other random bits thrown in,

I really love how these turn out just wish I had more of the little wooden trays.

Recycled Embellishment Tray

prima tray

I have to say it is so lovely to not have to feel like I need to hoard my idea-ology embellishments.

This is a Tray that had locks and keys in it.

I covered it in Tissue tape, then coated that with Matt Multi Medium, dried it and added some alcohol ink over the top. Super happy with how the technique turned out and will def use it again.

I then pulled out a mix of Idea-ology and watch parts and bingo my little tray was created.

Have to say I am really chuffed with how this has turned out.

May tag

My take on Tim’s May tag.

Have to say this was a bit difficult for me as I am not great with straight lines and well tons of stuff on one thing (I have always struggled with what I tend to think feels a bit cluttered)

 

Anyway the Paper Is a mix from 2 diff Kaiser Pads (I am yet to have any of the Tim Holtz stuff but have some on it’s way at long last)

Vintage Photo Distress ink and a couple of various brown stains.

Idea-ology, mirrored sheeting as well as watch parts and a Kaiser rub on.

As well as a Sizzix ornate fram die cut and Tim Holtz movers and shapers Butterfly.

 

I am rather proud of how this turned out some wonky edges and all.

12 Tags inspired OTP

As always inspired by the techniques of Tim Holtz

I really love the embossed foil tape technique so much so I used it Last year to create a mask (the technique cropped up in CC2 from memory)

I really love how the foil tape covers the shape of the Mask so well and gets all the contours without difficulty.

The Mask was a cheap one from ebay that I took the fabric and other tacky stuff that was on it off. What I have discovered is that the pre made masks are stronger and better to work with than the paper mache kind and often cheaper and some are lined as an added bonus for comfort.

Anyway here is the Mask

and from each side (I used some watch parts and mini cogs and gears from ideaology)

It was a birthday gift for a friend. It has a Game of thrones, Dr Who (insert other cool nerdy references here) type feel to it.

I was really happy with the end result.

If you want to do this just emboss a few pieces of the foil sheet/tape at once, do the aging technique linked to above and go to town.

A steampunk Halloween Box

Yes another Cybercrop Challenge. This we 2″ square box was my starting point it was a halloween themed mini otp challenge

I created this box and made a flower using Donna Salazar’s Rose Creations Dies (yep one of my fav things to enter my stash this year)

Then after I had embossed the box and added the flower and watch parts I had an idea how awesome would a flower look with watch parts in its center so that is what I did. I have to say I love how this turned out though embossing the box was the hardest part.

Here are two views of my Steampunk Halloween Box
