Steampunk Clockwork Gears Heart

I was so inspired by the wonderful images and vision of the Wedding of fellow Artisans Kate & Jacob Sparks, that they kindly gave me permission to use for the Steampunk Gears Shadow Box frame in my previous Blog post, that I based a further 2 projects around the same theme that could act as companion pieces to the Main Wedding Frame. I have used our NEW Clockwork Gears Heart,  Available Soon, on a frame for the wall and decorated a box with various Gears and our 75mm Typewriter Style Font Craftwood Letters.


Using the same technique as the Shadow box Fame I sponged all the pieces with two coats of Black Acrylic Paint, except the Wings, which I sponged with two coats of White Gesso. Next using a cheap 10" x 8" (25cm x 20cm) Canvas Board I used the same two Sassy Stencils: Sassy Stencil-48 & Sassy Stencil-47 as before to add random effect to Front & Sides. Again Coat with two coats of Black Acrylic and rub over once dry with Viva Decor Gold Paste "Browngold". On the Wings I have rubbed on Viva Paste in "Silver" just along the Front towards the top.


All the pieces are again rubbed with the Viva Decor Pastes used in the Previous Blog Post.  I also used two of our New Steampunk Themed Buttons as perfect Little Lovebirds!  Steampunk Bird Button: 1172  & Steampunk Bird Button: 1173.  To add further dimension and interest I have decorated the centres of the Cogs with the Heads cut of Split Pins & Flat Backed Adhesive Pearls.  Additional pieces include Paper Flowers, some Watch Components ... left over from my two Steampunk Curiosity Cabinets and a Little Tree Charm.  I thought this would be a nice personal touch as the Wedding Ceremony was held under a 200 year old Sycamore Tree.  What a Special day this must have been for them and all their guests.

The Gesso Wings look lovely with the Hint of Silver paste, which really catches the light.  Additional Cogs have been added around the Heart all from our Cogs Pack 1 & Cogs Pack 2.


.... and finally the finished piece.....



To complete my Steampunk Treasures I decorated a Box with Texture Paste using Sassy Stencil-47 , Black Acrylic & Viva Paste. Our NEW Cogs Corners make a great Feature. Available in pack of 4, Cogs Pack Available Soon. I used two sets on the Box. Also included Steampunk Heart Button 114975mm Typewriter Style Font Craftwood Letters.  A decorated Box would make a lovely Wedding Gift where Pictures, Menu Cards, Momentos etc could be kept from the Wedding Day.



..... so finally my Trio of Steampunk Treasures.....
