I'm rather behind with writing some posts, including this one! The Fearless Four got together recently, and we started off with an MDF book which has a drawer hidden in the spine.
I also had some large MDF cogs, so decided to create a steampunkish look.
I gave it several layers of different Fresco blue paints, and for the spine I used card cut into sections, embossed, and painted the same way; you can just see the card top left.
The babywipe I used to apply the paint turned out great too! (also seen on the left here)
Finally, I added some little bits and pieces, dry brushed some copper paint, and added a touch of gilding wax. The spine drawer is painted copper and I've added the pieces of embossed card.
A good place to hide some treasures - and with that hidden niche I'm including it in the latest Paper Artsy challenge.
And what did the rest of the Fearless Four create .....
Lin also went for a bit of steampunk - her mechanism is more complex than mine! Love that strong blue background.
Monica went for a natural look with lots of texture. Great hessian background.
Linda used texture paste and produced a very clean summery look - fabulous.
Our next get together is in a couple of week's time, when one of us has issued a challenge .....
