# Coffeebreak by Kerstin


 Welcome creative friends!


 Coffee is always a good idea, or?!

A good cup of coffee in the morning awakens your spirits and energy.


As I saw the little and big cups at Calico Craft Parts I thought, 

yes, they are very suitable for a mixed media coffee project in grundge style. 

Together with a clock face and some gear wheels I created a shadow frame

 that you can use as a gift or for your own kitchen.


The best thing about coffee is the aroma and the scent,

 so I also use some real coffee beans and coffee powder, 

that makes the whole thing more lively.

Steampunk Multi Frame - Cogs

 was completed with a single cog and two clock hands 

which were embossed with black  powder



 Teacup & Saucer

was disassembled into two parts and the plate was glued on again as a saucer in 3d optics



 here I glued a bigger and a smaller cup on top of each other, 

stamped them after painting and added some aromatic coffee powder to it

 Swirl Flourish

 I had to disassemble it too and used it as a cloud of scent wafting through the room

I hope I was a inspiration for your creative imagination! 


Happy crafting!!


Many thanks!



  1. Love the weathered cogs and gears - and coffee is exactly what I need to get my cogs and gears working in the mornings! Fabulous as always... and I've just discovered your wonderful wintry scene with the houses and car a few weeks ago... simply magical.

  4. lovely and charming, Kerstin!

    Your beautiful coffee break sign makes me long for a cuppa...sadly I am on herbal tea only as the caffeine makes me nervousness worse. But looking at your lovely make I can definitely smell a good roast right around the corner!
