Inside View - Nemo's Memories by Kerstin

Hello crafty friends!

Maybe you can still remember my last book shadow box
 'Octopus En Vogue' with the awesome 
  Today I would like to show you the interior design. 
The background was created using a decoupage paper with old maps, which 
I think is very suitable for Captain Nemo, a very famous fictional character by Jules Verne, and his adventures.
I wanted to create a gritty and dripping atmosphere.
So I used a lot of Nautical & Seaside wood shapes from Calico Craft Parts
in combination with some of their steampunk shapes.

 Calico Craft Parts used:

on my detail photos you can find all these wonderful pieces staged beautifully

with Metallic Lustre 'Gold Rush' from DecoArt

two old lanterns made with a silicone mould and 
black acrylic, painted with Antiquing cream 'Patina Green
and highlighted with  Metallic Lustre 'Gold Rush'

only on some places with embossing powder

with crackle Glaze and Antiquing cream 'Patina Green) from DecoArt

from Sheet of Mini Nautical Motifs Style 4

I hope you feel even more inspired  now to create your own
 Steampunk piece or a project in industrial grunge style?!
I really enjoyed working on mine!!! 
Many thanks for stopping by!
