Happy Tuesday CE friends! Nicolle here sharing some ornaments I am making for my steampunk themed tree. My goal is complete 100 steampunk related ornaments to fill my pink tree. My favorite color is pink and I love the grungy style. I figured I would go against the grain and mix the 2 styles.. I do not conform to the norm. My youngest daughter is not diggin the whole idea.
To start, I applied gesso to all the chipboard pieces but if I intended to use black on the piece I did not. I used a lot of metallic colors for a metal effect and even added some metal embellishments to the ornaments as well. I used silver acrylic paint, tim holtz distress paints and stains in black soot, brushed pewter and brass and white picket fence. For a christmas like effect I added stickles in gold and silver colors. Not shown here but I am also using pearl ex in copper color as well to add more metal colors to the tree on some of the same ornamenrs. My plans are to make 1 or 2 of each in the gold, silver and copper colors. I also make a few girly pink glittery metallic looking ornaments. I will share them on my Facebook page as I complete them. Lastly I am using a sealer made by krylon in matte finish to protect when I package them.
