**Let’s get creative, shall we?!**


1. Choose your desired papers, I am using my own papers I designed

*Hint: Steampunk Creature Melodies available in my online store

2. First step is to decide your background, I merely painted it with black gesso

3. Next, fussy cut your chosen images

*Hint: I used two sheets of paper to layer the guitar seamlessly

4. Alter your chipboard pieces using acrylic paints and silver wax

5. Begin by laying down your background, mine is the guitar page

6. Next lay down your background image, mine is the wolf

7. Now lay down your foreground, which is the guitar, and prop it up with foam dots

*Hint: I wanted to create an optical illusion while also adding depth with gears

8. As some finishing touches, add some chipboard gears and music notes

9. Finally, add some silver wax along the edges and behind the wolf
