Steampunk Mixed Media Card

I went to a class today with Marie from The Purple magnolia for a mixed media class and had such fun. We used all sorts of metal findings, some embossing powder, and some deliciously coloured waxes. I am in love with the new waxes <3.

After a layer of gesso, we laid all the textured items onto the card using the bits and pieces. These included metal cogs, air-dry clay cogs, some baubles, some texture through stencils with modelling paste, art stones, and some sort of water-proofing tape.

Then we coloured everything with black gesso as a starting point.

Then it was time to play. We used all sorts of colours of wax including a beautiful one called Peacock. It is on my wish list πŸ™‚ .It was fun to take each element and sort of lift it and create dimension using colour on top to pop it up.

Here are some closeups of some of the detail.

Such a fun class, and such a relaxing day. Thank you Marie – this was a wonderful class and we all learned a lot.

Thanks for popping in, and I wish you a relaxing rest of the weekend.
