Steampunk Picture Frame

Hello Everybody!

It's my turn over at Unique Laser Designs to do a project.  I had so much fun creating this picture frame.


The wings and the gears are all from Unique Laser Designs!  The frame is a basic wooden frame from the craft store.  

Here are a few highlights from my frame.  To see the complete tutorial you will have to check out my post at Unique Laser Designs! :)

I painted the frame with gesso and then coated it with Tim Holtz's Distress Crackle Paint.


Here are all of the gears in the natural form.  I used from 2 packs-both A and B.


I used Ultra High Embossing Powder from Wow! to cover the gears.  I used copper, gold and silver.


I used Ranger's Platinum embossing powder for the wings.  It's finer than the Wow!


Here is a close up of the wing with the US light bulb in the middle.  The bulb is from Prima.


Here is a close up of the cracklely goodness!



Also, I want to link this frame up to a couple of challenges:



As always-thanks for stopping by!  Until next time my friends--love that Steampunk! :)

It's a delicious and genuine steampunk frame, Katy. Good colors and the crackle is great and it fits nicely. The technique you used is also one of my favorites.

Thank you for participating in Sandee & Amelie's Steampunk Challenge.

Happy Easter

Katy - if I ever get married again - I will have a reception this time and I will insist that all my guests come in steampunk gear - and then I will frame all my pictures in a frame just like this - cos its awesome! See what you did? You made me think about getting married just to have a steampunk frame!
