Cutsie Steampunk Canvas | CraftyPaws

I love Steampunk, but I don’t get to craft in that style nearly as much as I’d like. I also love and naturally craft in the Cutsie and CAS styles (yes, they don’t normally go with Steampunk). So I was really happy to get the chance to do a light almost CAS Cutsie Steampunk altered canvas project just for me (also something I don’t often do – craft something for myself). 😀

20160422_164044This project was something I crafted as part of the Diemond Dies Spring YouTube Hop (links to the other hop stops are in the description box of my video (see below)), and each design team member is giving away a $10 gift certificate to Diemond Dies so go hop along and get lots of great inspiration!

For this project, I made faux metal gears using recycled cereal boxes, the Diemond Dies Steampunk Gears Die Set and the Steampunk Gears Mini Album Die Set, some DecoArt Media black gesso and fantastic DecoArt Metallic Lustre in Black Shimmer and Silver Spark (I also used these Metallic Lustres to change the bronze metal butterfly to more of a steel-looking Steampunk butterfly; the gears on the wings and key body were glued on with E6000).  My readers can get 10% off and free worldwide shipping at Diemond Dies by using the coupon code: thankskristina on any orders of $35 or more.

Anyway, since the video is a process video of me making the whole project start-to-finish, I’ll simply share that the product I used to do the image transfer was Americana Decor Image Transfer Medium and the border texture and ink splotching was made with DecoArt Dimensional Effects through the DecoArt Americana Pixelated stencil and DecoArt Media Shimmer Mister in Turquise.
