It was not easy to decide what to make for the final round in the Graphic 45
Design Team audition....I knew I wanted to use my favorite G45 papers, Steampunk
Spells. I had a pretty good idea of what to make...but the biggest challenge was
to make a Youtube video....I have never ever done a Youtube tutorial, but I guess
there has to be a first time for everything!!! You can find the result of my "movie making
efforts" at the end of this post.
A 14" high exploding pentagon.
A base of chipboard and a LOT of hot glue....g45 staples and my favorite G45 papers.
The metal butterfly is attached to the lid with black pearl strings.
Chipboard cut with Sizzix/Holtz dies (Gadget gears and Mini Labels) painted with
black gesso and Decoart Metallic lustre Gold to match the G45 staples.
I used a Martha Stewart deep edge punch (framed tulips) for the "railing" on top.
I love the matching die cut sheets, the sign from Steampunk Spells Banners.
An album inside....
Of course I made a pentagon album.....
The album is folded to fit in my "exploding pentagon"
Base of black cardstock.....
Lots and lots of chipboard and cardstock decorations, from Steampunk Banners,
Tags & Pockets and Chipboard 1 &2.
And if you take the "lid" of..........
......the "box" opens up and reveals my "Steampunk Lady"
The dress form is a cutting file from SVGcuts (from a set called Dress Shop)
cut in cardstock with my Silhouette Cameo.
Butterflies, a brad and a piece from a metal key for the dress.
The skirt looks rather torn and distressed....(made from polyester mesh)
A satin ribbon and brads to hold the skirt together.
A lot of flowers....all made from G45 papers in the Steampunk Spells collection.
Some of the flowers is from the die cut sheet "Steampunk Spells Flowers".
And now for the moving pictures...3-2-1 Action!!
It's no big secret that I love making paper flowers.... my all time favorite is
the "paper peonie"
the "paper peonie"
And here is the "step by step"
I love how you can transform a "simple piece of paper" into something
.......here's another of my favorites.
Thank you for taking the time to look at my work!!!
