Today is another very exciting week on the Heartfelt Creations blog as all the new designers are sharing their work for the first time, so be sure to check out their work and leave them some
encouragement. Candy Slabaugh has made a very cool steampunk hat using the All Geared up collection. and I also really like Debbie Sayers work.
I have a couple of things to share this week. both made with the All Geared Up collection. First is a card with lots of die cut gear shapes. I have used lots of Metallic inks and Inka gold to add dimension and texture.
For my next share, I decided to try something a bit different.I'm not entirely convinced I pulled it off, but trust me when I say that it does look better in real life. I guess you don;t know untyil you start playing.
I made a mask like this last year for my husband to wear to a work party. It was all gold and black and had lots of metal trinkets . I wanted to have another go at a mask, using the All geared up dies as the main focus. For this one I die cut the shapes in plain cardstock and adhered them to the plastic mask, then applied gesso over the whole thing. I was trying to create texture using the dies shapes. I've used this technique before, and it's a fun way to add some delicate texturing without alot of clutter. I then added colour with paint sprays. (Perhaps I could have gone a bit darker?).
I then cut lots of gear shapes from the patterned paper and added lots of metallic melts and Inka gold. I also gave the whole thing a light spray of gold at the end.
Anyway, here it is, tell me what you think.
OK, experimenting over, back to some cards and layouts. I can't wait to show you the new collection coming up this month, it's so pretty!.
