Eternal summer, a Tagbook

Thanks for all the many good years 

This is my last blog post on SanDee&amelie's Steampunk Challenges, I have been involved for many years as DT and it started in 2014 where I was welcomed by Claudia. It has been exciting to see all the many great suggestions that have come from everyone who has participated, and the blog could not have existed without your interest!




I started with 2 pcs. 12" tags that I put together for a little acordian book.
For the coloring I used my brayer. When it was dry I added new layers of stamps and stencil.




I have used: DecoArt media fluid acrylics, Raw Umber, Titan Buff,
Paynes Grey and Sap Green


I have also used: Gelliplate, Silk ribbon, 12" tags, Stamps and Diecut from Tim Holtz
 









I hope you will participate to show your great projects, so come and join us.
Otherwise, see you on the creative network.
Big Hugs, Susan

Snailmail-May/June

May/June challenge!

Come and play with us at 

This snailmail I have placed in my trusted journal. I always work in my journals both in purchased and homemade journals and I am always happy to smear in here and I can always try new methods that I try because I am incredibly curious. Lol


As you can see I have used my collage fodder from the last post, sewed the colored papers on the sewing machine into the journal. My steampunk man (chipboard) from Boozybear is decorated with black and stamped in white.


I have written in the journal a bit about the journey the letter is going on, and it is with great expectation where the letter is going to.


I have used: DecoArt Media Fluid Acrylics
Cobalt Teal Hue, Yellow Green Light, Cobalt Turquoise Hue, Cerulean Blue, Dioxazine Purple, Titan Buff, Quinacridone Burnt Orange, English Red Oxide.
DecoArt Media Black Gesso and Matte Medium


Also used: Gelliplate, Japan Paper, stamps, Black Pen, Chipboard from Boozybear, chipboard from a pile, Rubons, Charcoal and sewing machine


The stamp here is 4.5 x 3.0 cm, where I again used small pieces of paper to make my little collage.


Here is my chipboard man from Boozybear painted with black gesso and the stamped with Titan Buff.


I hope your are in good spirits and get some great steampunk created.

Come and play with us at 

I wish you all good luck.
Hugs, Susan

Collage Fodder - Gelliprint - Clip Holder

Hi everyone hope you are in good spirits and get some steampunk created.

Come and play with us at SanDee&amelie's Steampunk Challenges

 

I had a great desire to make a small holder with scraps that you could use for a small mini journal and it came to look like this. I found my gelli plate and used lots of color and papers. It was Japanese paper and copy paper that I am really happy with, it lies so nicely on the surface when it is glued on.

I have used: DecoArt Media Fluid Acrylics
Cobalt Teal Hue, Yellow Green Light, Cobalt Turquoise Hue, Cerulean Blue, Dioxazine Purple, Titan Buff, Quinacridone Burnt Orange, English Red Oxide.
DecoArt Media Black Gesso and Matte Medium


Also used: Gelli plate, Japan paper, copy paper, black iron wire, gears in cardboard.


I bent a needle into iron wire to hold my small scraps. The scraps were stapled to a slightly thicker piece of cardboard and I decorated the needle with a paper bead.


I found the 2 screws on the street with lots of rust, and help to keep the thin papers in place.

Remember that the challenges is in March and April.
I wish you all good luck. Hugs, Susan

New Beginnings 2021

Remember it is a two month challenge!

I reflect on what we have all experienced in this year 2020 here on the last day of the year with the hope that 2021 will be much better. We can all help to do a lot but unfortunately there are things we do not have an influence on. Therefore, I came to think of keys and what I use them for: unlock and close, they can also illustrate the five senses, to see, hear, feel, taste and smell.


These keys are an illustration of two people's love ups and downs and
all the decades that one has lived together.

My words for 2021 are: curiosity, listening, optimism, intuition and thinking ahead.


My background is an old tin can found on the road where it has been run over by cars where it has been lying in all kinds of weather and got this lovely patina of rust.


I have used:
Brilliant Blue DecoArt Crafters Acrylic
DecoArt media Black Gesso
DecoArt media Fluid Acrylics Cobalt Teal Hue, Yellow Green light, Quinacidone Gold and Quinacidone Burnt Orange


All the other things I have used are from my desk.

Remember it is a two month challenge!

I hope that everyone gets a fresh start, that the year will be creative and full of hope and good health,
Many thoughts and love to you all from Copenhagen.
Hugs, Susan

Winterstorm - November/December

 New SanDee&amelie's Steampunk Challenges. Remember it is a two month challenge November/December 2020. We will love to se your project.

The snow is flying on fields and meadows, withered stumps and
flower stands sticking their stems up over the snow,
frost in the air on a clear bright blue sky with faint stars.

That's what I imagined when I made my tag...


If you want to know how I have rusted my focal point, then read here:
1 deciliter of vinegar and 1 deciliter of water, put it on a spray bottle.
Take the things you want to rust - put other old rusty things in the package, but before you wrap it all in old cotton fabric, the fabric must be wetted with your vinegar/water solution so the fabric is moist, wrap it all tightly and put string around many times. Put it in a plastic container, spray with your solution and repeat for a few days until you see that the fabric is stained by rust-
unpack your package and see the good result


I have used: DecoArt Media Black Gesso and Crackle Paint
DecoArt Dazzling Metallics Ice Blue
DecoArt Media Fluid Acrylics Titan Buff and Quinacridone Gold
TANDO CREATIVE Tag


I have also used  metal ephemera, fabric, stars, gaze and die.

SanDee&amelie's Steampunk Challenges

I wish you a good Christmas holiday and that you may have good health for you and your family, get well into the new year.
