Hello and welcome everyone! Jackie Neal here today and I am over the moon excited to be the September Guest Designer here at Gina's Designs!!
The first time I saw Gina's laser cuts used were on a friend's blog. Straight away I had to go check out the store and you know what? I sent my first order in that day! Thank you Nichola Battilana for turning me on to Gina's Designs!
For my first project, I went all out with Steampunk!
When I received my pieces I knew I had to use the steampunk parts first. I love the chipboard assortment that Gina's has to offer; so much to choose from!
The substrate here is an upcycled jewelry box. Perfect to showcase Gina's steampunk elements!
For my gears, I coated them with embossing powder and then layer and layers of paint for a grungy, rusty look.
With the Steampunk card stock doily set, I used embossing paste through a gears stencil over areas on the doilies. When dry, first I added more color to the embossed areas, then I cut and molded the doilies onto areas of the box using gel paste.
Next for my Steampunk lady, I used two different sizes of the dressforms cut and fitted to make her cage dress. She also has on a corset from the Dressforms set as well as Gina's Steampunk Wings.
Behind her in the box there is more of the Steampunk doily as well as FANTASTIC from the Word Ribbon 3 Set.
