We are hopping with Walnut Hollow Blog Hop and having a great time. I received some fun items to play with from Walnut Hollow and had a blast making this resinated Steampunk wall hanging with ICE Resin covered chipboard and frame, faux finished wood frame and some fun watch parts!!
Prepare your Walnut Hollow wood surface with Tattered Angels faux finish paint system. Place your chipboard pieces on a plastic ziploc bag and cover with ICE Resin.
Gather a couple pieces of old newspaper or dictionary pages and place on a plastic ziploc bag and cover with ICE Resin leaving a thin layer and allow all pieces to dry overnight. Carefully lift the pieces from the bag and trim the excess resin.

When adhering the gears, I slipped a little piece of May Arts gold ribbon underneath to give it a little more texture.
To fill in the wood frame opening, place a ziploc bag under the frame, pour resin to fill only the bottom with just a 1/4 inch thick of resin. Place a heavy object on the top of the frame to push the weight down to prevent as much of the resin from leaking as possible. Do this before you add any other pieces to the top of the frame.
Wait an hour, then go back in and randomly drop the watch parts in the resin. Place the heavy item on top again and let sit overnight.
Adhere all the pieces to the front of the frame, add some wording of your choice. I used Steampunk.
To finish it off add some Industrial Chic pieces to give it the final flair!
This was a fun piece to make...there are no limits! Be Inspired! Always!

Its that time again....the Christmas holiday. When giving a gift, half of it is the presentation. There are so many easy ways to make a big statement with your packaging using textures like canvas, burlap and twine along with paper.
I wrapped the package in Kraft paper to start. Then misted with two different Tattered Angels spray mists, Red and Tuscan Sun
Add red & green twin along with cut strips of the same color canvas. Add canvas and burlap strips.
Fray the edges of the burlap and canvas. Add a red burlap flower and some cut patterned paper pieces to finish the look.
The holidays are upon us and its time for holiday mini albums and I dont want to be left behind...so I got busy!
This mini album has a ton of 7Gyspies holiday paper and ruler, Canvas Corp patterned paper that I fussy cut to show off Santas outfit and a ton of colored canvas, twine along with some luscious red ribbon from May Arts all on a fun wood album from Genuinely Jane Studios.
Congratulations to a very special couple on their engagement!
