Altered Little Note Pad

Hello all, it´s Evelyn here today, nice to have you here again!
I want to share my altered little note pad with you. I love the industrial, steampunky look of things and of course thinking of steampunk and metal, there must be some gears and cogs!

I made a video of the process, where you can watch the steps of the making of.

There are some days left to join in with our challenge, so I hope to see your work here!
Thank you for your visit today and you are welcome to visit my blog.

Shine on

Morning everyone Debs here to share my second inspiration for this months theme, given to us by the lovely Miriam. Still managing to resist doing something rusty, (well it's good to challenge ourselves, isn't?) I used metallic paints instead.

Hope you can pop by my blog to see how this card came together

Take care

He's A Family Guy

Good morning, it's Sue here and I'm really happy to be sharing my second metal themed piece with you. I've gone back to a forgotten favourite that's been at the bottom of my drawer for far too long - VerDay paint.

I hope this makes you smile more than my grumpy Hipster family. There are more photographs over on my blog so I hope to see you over there.  Have a very happy day, and thanks for looking x
