Boozybear Sponsor Special IV

Hi, servus and welcome to part IV 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

Today it's time for Susan to share her highly textural beautiful boozybear feature project. Enjoy!


Hands, Cogs and Rubies

From our sponsor boozybear, I have got these amazing chipboards and they are very well suited for a steampunk project.

I have used 20x20 canvasboard. On it, I have cracklepaint, sandpaste, glassbeads texture gel and heavy paste, while it was wet, I dripped my acrylic colors.

All my chipboards have got a lot of rusty paste, black acrylic color and mica wax. At last they were decorated with some rubies.

Some details:

I wish you great joy with your creative projects.
Hugs, Susan


I hope you have enjoyed this inspiration as much as I have! If you haven't checked out the other boozybear feature projects (see link list in the introduction of this post) or the DT makes for our November-December challenge, I highly recommend you do so! 

On Saturday  the Top5 and prize winners from the October challenge will be announced - another good reason to stop by! And of course we would love to see you play along in November and December with our usual two-months long winter special challenge

Hugs and happy crafting!
