DT Scrap FX - Steampunk Time


Our theme this month Steampunk Time - yes, that's me :-) 
I decided to make a home decoration project. 
There were two bookends from sale which I painted with some acrylic paints.
Now they look even older, I love this distressed look.


Scrap FX products used:

this octopus is my favourite from our new chipboard steampunk series,
 he looks so cool and adventurous, or?!
firstly I used Glimmer Mist Verdigris as base ink
then added some embossing powders
black, copper and green,
as eye a little black pearl
and he was ready to glue it on the big letter

Reading a good book is also always a new journey and adventure and so was the wordlet 'Enjoy the journey '
very suitable for my bookends.

here as base ink Glimmer Mist Slate and a mix from black and copper embossing powder

Hopefully you will now feel even more inspired to create your own Steampunk project.
I really enjoyed working on mine!!!

Many thanks for stopping by!
Happy crafting!

  1. Oh, wow!!! The aged look you have achieved with your bookends is just fantastic, Kerstin! You see me stand in total awe. I've never seen a better faux aged look before! Just brilliant!
