- Welcome to my crafting blog. After retirement, my husband and I moved to a beautiful location in the Okanagan area of British Columbia. I love all paper crafts including mixed media, journaling and cards. I also dabble in papermaking, photography, fibre art, and altered books. I am an active member of several card and mixed media groups and on the design team of several challenge blog. I love the world of blogging, it has opened many doors for me. My favourite quote is by Maya Angelou. “You can’t use up creativity. The more you use, the more you have.” I hope you join me in my search for my creative side. Thanks for stopping by!

Please make sure you use multiple mediums on your projects.
For this months project I decided to make this Steampunk Man. I was inspired by a project made in a class I took from my friend Mindy from Pip Art.
My Steampunk man is a rubber stamp by Sheena. The Frame of the picture is 2 square frames, one used in reverse. I added a steampunk hat to my man that I drew. The background paper on the bottom frame is from Stamperia, I also used cord to give the frame more texture.

I first painted my boot with black gesso then added a Stamperia soft molded called Sea World which I painted with Pentart - Patina Effects. I added my wings which I recycled off of a small child's flying horse. I also painted the wings with Patina Effect.
My next step was to add my collection of gear, clocks and brads. Some of my findings were die cuts, metal findings and wooden gears. To add texture and aging to the gears etc I used embossing powders(Stampendous Shabby Blue and Chuncky Metallic) and Pentart's Rust Effect Paints.
