A mini box with three small stories...

Dear readers our September challenge on SanDee&amelie's Steampunk is started
and here's my little story ...

This little story begins with the box
was found under an excavation where a new metro station will be built.

Three records were discovered ...

Which is about the old laboratory which once stood in the middle of the city.

The journals have a fine marbled cover.

I have used:

DecoArt media Black and White gesso
Texture sand paste, Crackle paint and Matte medium
DecoArt media Fluid Acrylics Cadmium Orange Hue, Cobalt Teal Hue and Quinacridone Gold
Andy Skinner stamp ASCSA5018

(I had this small metal box of 6.0 x 3.5 cm that needed rust makeover.)
Tim Holz stamps, paper pad, distress ink, Archival ink, gear from Amazon and NeoColor ll

(I have made the marblering with the colors and a spartel that I have drawn along the paper.)

Picture of first lady who stands for everything in the old laboratory...

(Here the colors are placed on the stamps with Neocolor ll.)

I hope you forgive me for the long post and if you have reached that far, I wish you would like to play with us on SanDee&amelie's Steampunk Challenges.
Hugs, Susan

  1. I absolutely adore the whole concept of this creation Susan, from inside and out. The Tin itself is a genius creation with its rust effect and added elements, but those miniature books hidden within are a real gem to discover. Thank you for sharing these mini pieces of inspiration. I am in awe.
