Travelalbum 'Moments' by Kerstin

Welcome, creative friends!

I was inspired to create a new mixed media mini album in vintage industrial style that has a touch of steampunk to collect not only some memories from past vacations, but also some  awesome wooden steampunk shapes from Calico Craft Parts inside. Have you seen the latest additions? They're absolutely stunning!

After a longer photo session I will explain
 how to layer wooden shapes in a simple way.

The album was handmade from old calendar sheets, 
leftovers from scrapbook papers, washi tapes, stamps, stencils, tags, metal embellishments
 and cutting dies.

On the many album pages I would like to show that wooden shapes
 can be used in many different ways. 
Either as a single element or as a base for a cabochon, but also for fixing photos 
or layered on top of each other as a special eye-catcher.


Just get inspired!


Calico Craft Parts used: 


Layering with wooden shapes


Firstly I applied Crackle Glaze on one half of the clock face. After drying, I first wiped with DecoArt media Antiquing cream 'Titanium White' on the left side and then Antiquing cream 'Carbon Black' on the right side. 
Then I embossed both parts - Steampunk Cogs & Clock Hands - MDF Wood Corner and the letter 'A' from MDF Letters & Numbers - Steampipe Font - with fine silver  embossing powder.
The letter 'A' was glued in the middle of the clock face and the steampunk corner was fixed to the lower part and I also decorated the gluing with a cap nut.

Thanks for your visit!
Have a beautiful weekend!
