Goooood morning all!
It's the 1st of September! Wow! I swear it was Christmas only a few weeks ago, and we're already in September! And my youngest starts high school tomorrow. Do I feel old? Why yes. Yes I do.
On a less depressing note, there's a new month starting at Rhedd's Creative Spirit, where Anything Altered Art Goes, and I decided to play with an MDF box for my DT piece.
I stared with the MDF box (from the MDF man), and painted it black.
I then covered the lid (and the inside, which I forgot to photograph...) with paper from a DCWV stack. I then embellished with lots of shapes from Fernli Designs, which were also painted black, and then dry-brushed with bronze paint to make them look like "grubby" metal.
The cluster on the left is placed on top of a piece of Hessian that I also roughly blackened, and I added a few bits of brass chain to finish off the lid.
I wrapped a length of chain around the base, and added some gorgeous Steampunk goggles with wings to the sides, and a keyhole to the front, also both dry-brushed bronze. While I was at it, I added a light dry-brush to the edges of the lid and base too.
Ta-daaaa. A steampunk keepsake box!
Now, I suggest you all do yourselves a favour, and go see what the rest of the team have created, as their makes are simply stunning! After that, I hope you'll be inspired enough to join in. There's this gorgeous MDF letter rack up for grabs:
Have a fantabulous day!
