Steampunk & Sea by Kerstin

Welcome, creative friends!

I'm an enthusiastic Mixed Media designer and Steampunk & Sea is always a very fascinating theme for me.

Some days ago I got a wonderful gift from my friend Claudia 😍
thanks sooo much!!!

I'm totaly in love with this awesome Maxi Mould 'Seaworld' from Stamperia. I have already used various casts for some mixed media projects and was very thrilled to experiment and find out if you can combine this big seahorse (made with modeling clay) with some filigree MDF wood shapes from Calico Craft Parts.

 I created a mixed media frame in Altered Art style. Before that it was just a simple plastic frame from a Euro shop.

Have you already seen these awesome letters in steampunk style in the Calico Craft Parts store???

You can choose various sizes for the letters and you can build your very own words as you can order each letter separately. 

I used two different sizes of the

Dotted Peacock Weed - MDF Seaweed Wood Shape Style 3

together with some natural elements and a sea star (made with a mould as well).

The magnificent hair of my steampunk sea horse was made using the
Crab MDF Wood Shape - Style 3

 Probably the hairdresser had just closed here too

but luckily some strong hair gel was still there ;-)

The dorsal fin was created from the

Spider Web Flourish MDF Wood Shape

I used some embossing powders and Metallic Wax for some shiny metallic effects

.... one of my favs from our latest ATC frames collection - the

Plain ATC Wood Blank with Cogs & Steampipe Frame

with a very special embossing powder 'Burnt Copper Leaves'

Two wood shapes used in layering technique:


 Do you also love to combine different ideas and materials? Then maybe you would like to give this a try.

 Thanks for your visit!


Stay safe everyone and take care of yourselves and your loved ones…

  1. I thought I had left a comment here, Kerstin...but I guess it was over at your blog then.

    Just stopped by again to enjoy this awesome project once more in all its beauty and depth! Still love every tiny detail and all the beautiful surfaces and the design!
