Steampunk Inspiration - Part 2 with Trudi Harrison

Hi Everyone!

Trudi back with the second part to my project that I shared earlier in the month with you. You may recall the steampunk inspired heart:

It now adorns the front cover of this paper mache mini album:
The cover was altered with Colour Pastes and Shimmer Sprays.  Dusty Charcoal Colour Paste was first applied with a palette knife with a slight stippled effect created.  Masked detail was then added with Leather Colour Paste and a cog stencil.
Leather and Deep Blue Colour Shimmer Sprays were then spritzed over the top.
I created a frame from heavy cardstock.
Dusty Charcoal Colour Paste was applied over the top with a palette knife.
A stipple effect was created by pressing the flat part of the knife up and down.
A heat gun was used to dry the paste - this also created a lovely bubbled effect which adds extra detail to the texture.
Leather and Deep Water Colour Shimmer Sprays were then spritzed over the top.
 The frame was attached to the cover with foam tape. 
More colour was added with Deep Water and Sunshine Colour Shimmer Sprays.
 Chipboard elements were altered with Colour Shimmer Sprays -  Dusty Charcoal, Leather, Deep Water and Sunshine.
A button medallion was first painted with Deep Water Colour Paste and then accented with Leather and Deep Water Colour Shimmer Sprays. 
The reverse of the cover was altered similarly as the front.
The mini album pages were adhered together and a 3D window box effect created by removing a rectangle section with a craft knife. 
Masked detail was added with Leather Colour Paste.
 Charcoal and Leather Colour Shimmer Sprays add colour.
 The depth of colour was built up with accents of Deep Water and Sunshine.
 Another altered frame was created and chipboard elements added for embellishment.
 Chipboard was spritzed with Leather with accents of Deep Water Colour Shimmer Sprays.

With sadness, this is my last project for Colour Blast as a Design Team member.  I would like to thank Colour Blast for the opportunity of being part of this fabulous team.  It sure has been fun working with your awesome products and sharing some happy inspiration along the way.
