Boozybear Special - Part V

Hi, servus and welcome to part V of our boozybear sponsor special feature!

What's it all about? Well, we thought it was about time to give Glenda - aka boozybear - and her fab steampunk chipboard pieces the attention they deserve and we will be doing so by showing steampunk/industrial style projects done by my wonderful DT - each using the same boozybear parts but in totally different projects and ways of using them so you can see how versatile these are and maybe also grab a little inspiration here and there for your own projects.

So throughout the next months you will find extra project posts over here - each done by one of my talented DT ladies and I am so happy to have the opportunity to not only show Glenda's amazing chipboard designs but also let my DT each have the stage to herself. (to make it easier for you to compare the projects I will add links to the previously posted boozybear projects to every new project post.) I find the idea thrilling to see how differently the same chipboard pieces can be approached. I hope you do too. ;)

*Here's the link list to previous boozybear projects done by the DT:

Boozybear Special I
Boozybear Special II
Boozybear Special III
Boozybear Special IV

Today it's time for Zoja to share this amazing painting in which she used the fab boozybear chippies so beautifully. Enjoy!


 Hi! Zoja here today.

I want to show you my latest work, different form others I've shown here. Today it's an A3 size, gesso primed canvas.  

I refreshed my friendship with drawing and graphics. In this painting I have worked with the gift from Boozybear and used drawing ink, acrylic paint, watercolour crayon, pen and gelato.

I used Boozybear's cogs and elements to embellish the painted character.

I painted the chipboards with Media Fluid Acrylics from DecoArt in colours:
 Quinacridone Magenta and Primary Magenta

And this is set of chipboards I received: 

I hope you like it and wish you great joy with your creative projects.
 Hugs, Zoja


Wow! I just love your beautiful steampunk portrait, Zoja! Thank you so much for sharing it with us today! I hope to see more of your handdrawn, graphic projects from you in the future.
