We thought it was about time to give Glenda - aka boozybear - and her fab steampunk chipboard pieces the attention they deserve and we will be doing so by showing steampunk/industrial style projects done by my wonderful DT - each using the same boozybear parts but in totally different projects and ways of using them so you can see how versatile these are and maybe also grab a little inspiration here and there for your own projects.
*Here's the link to the "Boozybear Special I" project post. (this list will be added to with each new boozybear feature post).
Of course there's also our other prize we're giving away each month - being generously donated by DecoArt media - and it is this great bundle of DecoArt media goodness:
Both monthly prizes go to randomly drawn winners (among all proper entries!). So all you have to do to get the chance to win one of these is play along and have some steampunk/industrial creative fun!
Please, find September's winners in this post right after the boozybear special. But for now let's open the stage for Maura and her boozybear project! Yay!
I am so happy to share some inspiration using these fabulous Boozybear Chipboard pieces with you! I love the quality and variety of pieces that are perfect for steampunk.
I decided to work small and make a couple of time themed ATC's, so I picked out some of the smaller chipboard pieces to use like the clock face and gears.
I took the Boozybear clock and gears and rubbed on the Copper Kettle Metallic, then dabbed on some Payne's Grey and Prussian Blue Fluid Acrylic paints. I also sprayed on a bit of Carbon Black, aiming for a metallic but rusty look.
I added the chipboard over the images, and found some watch parts, key, dragonfly, etc. to also add on. The chipboard really adds a wonderful dimensional touch to the ATC's.
I hope you've found a bit of inspiration and ideas on ways to use these cool steampunk inspired chipboard pieces!
Aren't Maura's ATCs just awesome?! I love what she has done with the fab chipboard pieces designed by Glenda! And there are so many more to be discovered at Glenda's etsy store!
