3D mixed media (steampunk inspired)

 


This is pretty much all made from Finnabair products and the substrates are mostly calico craft parts leftovers after removing the laser cut shapes

Altered tin shrine.



Catching up.



I’m not great at remembering to blogI do my Facebook craft page, Instagram and the design team blogs, but this one gets neglected. I’m not sure personal craft blogs get used as much as they used to by anyone. 

So I’m going to just add a few photos of recent projects that I’ve forgotten to blog before now.

Tag frenzy.

 I joined a tag swap last month and because I started one tag, I took a bit of a notion for making tags in general. From  huge 10 inch tags, to 7 inch, 6 inch, and 5 inch. I won’t share all of them here though. There were too many lol.

But here is a selection….

Farewell to SanDee & Amelie’s Steampunk challenge.

 


Well… it is the last ever SanDee & Amelie’s steampunk challenge. I wanted to do something specifically for the challenge as I’ve enjoyed visiting the blog. 

Thank you to all of the design team who have inspired us over the years. 

So here it is. My last entry. I’ve made a rusty 12 x 12 canvas using resin cast in moulds, rust pastes, patina waxes, metallique paint, sparks, stencils etc.

Black luxury. An altered bottle for Art Daily Cafe

 

The theme over on Art Daily Cafe this month is “Black luxury” so I have altered this big bottle using mostly black gesso and jet jewel paste. It’s a variation on Finnabair’s “moonshine” bottle class. Bottles and tins are my favourite things to alter. 

That’s the “black part taken care of but what is my take on luxury? 

I am unwaged long term disabled and funds are super tight ALL the time. For me, getting new art supplies is a luxury. Extra luxury when it’s Finnabair metallique or sparks. So the whole thing represents luxury. But as an addition, every time I use the “gold chest” sparks on anything, the deep dark rich tone of it  just screams opulence to me. Of course metallique paints, glitter and iridescence don’t  really show well in photos but in real life, the colours are so pretty when you move the bottle in the light. 



This is the mood board from Art Daily Cafe…
