Clockwork themed book box by Zuzu

I must first apologise for how short on text my recent blog posts have been. I’m finding it impossible on my iPad as once I add the photos, I can’t scroll to see or edit them. So I add some short vital info, then add the photos and just hope they are there because I can’t scroll to check.
If any of you blog using an iPad I’d very much appreciate any advice you can give.
Anyhoo... back to this weeks project.
It’s a book box. Well so far it’s the cover of a bookbox.
I’ve covered it with scrapbook papers, added some lovely steampunk embellishments and used paint and rust mediums etc to give it a worn interesting look, (at least, that was the plan).

Well there you have it. A badly edited post with poor layout lol. I would have happily done a step by step on the paint distressing but google blog is making it impossible. 
If you have any questions, please just pop an email over to me or ask on Facebook.

  4. A wonderful inspiration Louise und genau zur richtigen Zeit, wenn ich mir die neuen Errungenschaften im Shop so ansehe. Da bekommt man richtig Lust sich mal wieder im Steampunkthema auszutoben :-). Creative hugs, Kerstin xx

  5. Wow, Louise, I just love the rusting effects you achieved on those clockwork embellishments. What a great cover! xx
