We thought it was about time to give Glenda - the designer and owner of the boozybear etsy shop - 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.

Today it's time for Dee to share her final make as a member on our design team. And once again she has outdone herself! We will miss her and her amazing art and we wish her all the best for her future creative endeavours!
Hi everyone I hope you are well I have my piece using the lovely shapes that we
were given from Boozy Bear I hope you enjoy reading how I did it as much
as I did making the tags.
This is a photo of the shapes that were sent to me and the other members of the DT
we were all asked to make a piece and look at all the different results.
I also used a couple of other Boozy bear pieces that I had in my stash,
they were the picture frame and i cut up a couple of the pieces
to fit in with what i was trying to achieve.
So above I cut the hands off with the flourishes as you will see further on.
I started with the wings i put black modelling paste through a stencil
then used a texture comb and ran it up and down the
wings so it gave them ridges.
I triple embossed the piece that I had cut the hands off with chunky embossing powders from Stampendous.
While still hot I pushed a cog stamp from stampendous
into the hot powder. Once cool I used Deco Art patina
antiquing cream and left to dry.
I prepared all three tags by using the following process.
Deco Arts Media black modelling paste was put through
a verity of stencils. Different stencils were used on
Once the modelling paste was dry I used black gesso followed by black
media fluid Acrylic as it gives a different surface to the gesso.
This was followed by white then patina antiquing cream.
I embossed the clock and sprinkled some teal over to give it a patina effect.
Below you can see I cut the small clock off a bigger piece and
gold embossed it.
Tag 1 was collated together and finished off with building wax
and coloured gauze.
Same for tag 2 I added a glass embellishment to the base of the tag.
Also the same for tag 3 I used the embossed clock and the photo frame
from Boozy bear the frame was painted with Deco art crackle paint and
coloured with washes of fluid acrylic.
I hope you have all enjoyed my post and will be desperate to try these
amazing chipboard shapes as they are so versatile and you can
customise them if you so wish.
Cheers Dee x
A most amazing tag trio, isn't it?
