In the Kindred Souls Round Robin, I have picked A steampunk Air Travel as my theme. Koinkidenkilly, I saw a beautiful Prima kit at a weekend conference, prepared for a class by Finnabair. I didn’t take the class or attend the conference, but I sure got my hands on this gorgeous Prima Sunrise Sunset kit.
Not even released yet! I hope they do soon, because Im going into serious withdrawal. Are you reading this, Prima?????
The kit gave some explanations on how to achieve ‘the look’. I can’t claim that I have, but I had so much fun making the covers for my book:
The Prima kit comes with all the metal flowers, and the fabric flowers. It also has the grunge board letters, the metal wheels, and lots of dooh dahs!!!
I didn’t take any pictures of the inside, because I forgot! Here’s the main heroine, MS Magdalena Orgenloff. Dressed for her journeys and adventures around the world. A little montage in Photoshop. Her various parts come from a kit on DeviantScrap from Brimm-steamtown-celebrations. Fun!
Oh, valid point, Kathy, I didn't describe the process. I painted the
background with white gesso, because it was cardboard. Then I glued down
cardboard pieces, cheesecloth, and with the gel medium I was using, I
also make some marks and designs. Then I used spray glimmer mists from
'outsidethemargins.com' since I've had good luck with their sprayers. I
also added some titan buff and gold paint, and van dyke brown for edging
the sides. Voila!
