Clocks, Gears and SteamPunk

Hello everyone!  I am happy to share with you a project I made
for Sherri Baldy's  Addicted To Stamps Blog
I am using a few of the Steampunk digis that are available from My Besties.
I have made a 4" x 6" album with a hidden hinge system
and pocket pages and other elements.

This is img103 SteamPunk Fairy
and you can find her HERE

I have used her for my front cover.

Not sure of what colors to use for the wings, well here are the colors I have used.
This was a fun image to use to experiment with colors to see
what effects I could make with adding and layering the colors.

 E00, 21, 33, 50, 53  * Y21  *  BG 10, 70

and here are the colors I used for her outfit.

RV00, 91, 93, 95, 99

And for the second image, I used img113 SteamPunk Cat
 and you can find him HERE 

He has decided to watch over all my photos and is
located on the back inside cover.

I tried another color combo for is wings and have used

E11, 21, 53 * Y21 * BG 11
I also used a prismacolor premier pencil in light aqua
to add more on the edges and corners.

Here is the album

I also would like to share some of the embossing and how I
gave the pages, the cover and back cover the look.


I used these embossing folders by Darice

I used Tim Holtz distress ink and inkagold in two colors ( gold and ice blue)
First, I inked the edges and lightly over the entire top.  I then took the inkagold
and rubbed over the embossed gears and clocks in various places.


And for my added spine embellishment.  I added an eyelet hole between
pages 3 and 4 and laced the ribbon yarn through and added charms, beads
and a gear piece to dangle from the ends.

I have in my stash this amazing ribbon yarn that works perfect.

I hope you have enjoyed todays project!
