Let loose Journal page

This week I decided to make my Journal page for the (Build A Journal) event we are having over at My Rusty Crown Inspiration Facebook group! I just Let Loose! Now I don't mind a chunky journal, I think it gives it some charm! My Partner is also a chunky layering person so I went with it!

I started with My 6x9 paper, I used mixed media paper so it would hold up good to all my mediums! I started off with stamping, I like to do this to get an idea of where I want to place everything, I used the 49andMarket stamp Pascales formula along with some other random stamps. ( I keep a pile of go to stamps on my desk that I like to grab for background stamping).

I then Cut Out my Elements so I could move them around and have them sitting by for color reference. I used these awesome dragons from the New Craft Box paper pad ( The Dreamer). I have the 6x6 pads. they are awesome size for journal pages!

Now I'm ready to start my process, I used some TH washi tape for texture and (background Noise) I then gave a white was of gesso to the page and used a Little Birdie stencil and modeling paste to add more texture!

Now I start adding some color using Cosmic shimmer,shimmer shakers I just keep sprinkling the powder and spritzing with water and drying in between colors. 

I took some black sewing thread and added that along with more stamping! I also took some colorsplash and lindy's sprays and went to town with splattering! (splattering Colors is an addiction for me)!

Here is a Stamperia Mould I used Some resin in,I used very little resin, paper thin. I didnt wait the whole 10 mins for it to cure, as soon as I was able to puul it out I did. the resin was still soft so I took scissors and cut the wings away from the heart. I color them with black gesso and give them a dusting of finnabair wax in (Blue Velvet)

Here Im rearranging How I want these places and gluing them together

This is it! Links below for Products Used!

Stamperia Dress Form!

Hiya! Happy Happy Friday! Today I have  pretty big canvas to show you! 10x20 (25cm x 50cm)

Starting off I took Finnabair Rust Effect Paste and layered it through a stencil until I got the color Combo to look rusted.

Next I took My Rice paper from Stamperia and fussy cut the dress form,I kept the trimmimgs from the paper. I traced the dress onto chipboard and cut that to size also, giving the dress some sturdiness. 

Here You see I add the trimmings of left over rice paper with soft gel medium and trace the outline of the dress to canvas so I know my focal point!

I added stencil with Brown Archival ink and some stamping with black archival, This helps blend the rice paper into the background. Also Crackle paste from (Cosmic Shimmer)

I added a few spritzes of Lindy's gang sprays in (Merci Beaucoup Mint) I add extra cardboard to the back of the dress so it sits higher up on the canvas, I'm playing around with the postion of all my bobs and bits.

After figuring out my composition I give everything a layer of Black gesso and  glue down with heavy gel medium

I take rust paste and also the turquoise paste from the Norther Lights Texture fantasy set and add it to all my embellishments. Ill link below embellishments used also

Next I add all my finishing touches Prills in (Aqua Net) Tim Holtz (story sticks) Finnabair Vintage Melange art pebbles, and Finnabair waxes in (Vintage Gold) and (Bronze Age). Thats It! hope you like it! XOXO

Steampunk lady

Its friday, and time for a new blog post. I hope u all have a good start on the weekend. 

I have made this steampunk lady and want to show you how I build up the details. 

I used a lot of details from my stash. But, first I colored the body with PentArta metal colors. 

I glued some different details on top of each other and I wanted it to look symmetrical. 

After I was done with all details I colored everything in the same color as the whole body. 

When the metal colors dried, I used s heat gun, I started to add some more colors. I used Finnabair Rust paste.

I added the paste here and there, and used the brown rust paste with some water to make the “deep feeling” around the things, a bit more 3D. 

I ended with the gold color from Finnabair Patina set. I took just a little, not thick, on my fingertip and went over very very easy and not much. I did this until I felt I was satisfied. I also used some drops here and there from PentArts yellow rust effect in small bottle. 

Take care! 
Love, Milo

I also added My homemade coffee Ground Spray to the backround for a more vintage look. I started assembling the inside I used some black thread paper flower leaves that I also sprayed with blazing black Lindy's sprays. and a quote chip from Tim Holtz -Halloween (Lost in the Darkness)

Hello dear crafters. 
I’ve built a par of googles, that I have colored and decorated. I actually think I will add some more decorations though. And I promise to show the result later. 

This is all pieces that is included to the googles. The one in the bottom of the picture will be turned as the one that is laying on top of it. 

This is how it will be glued together. 

All pieces together. 

I gave my googles color with PentArts Iron Paste. 

I have used some decorations from Tim Holtz and Prima Marketing. 

You who seen my creations before understand that I need to add more to those googles before I am 100% satisfied. :) 

Hugs Milo
