Graphic 45 Stash Buster Steampunk Collage

Hey there Paper Peeps! Today I'm sharing a special project that I created with lots and lots of layers from my Graphic 45 scrap and salvage basket. Yes...I do have a basket full of only G45 papers and embellies.....I just can't bear to get rid of even the tiniest scrap...I'm also upcycling an old frame that I've had for ages...waiting for the right project.
I couldn't decide if I wanted to make a banner....a collage...or altered I went for all three. I've also used about elebenty hundred foam spacers to make it super dimensional.
I added some tags topped of with poofy bows created with Black Satin Swiss Dots, and Metal Staples Lock Plates. This was a perfect spot for the Mini Vintage Book the link for my video tutorial on how to make this great little book.
I clipped these flowers and curled them for lots of dimension....and added Dusty Attic chipboard elements.  This may be my record for layering lol.
I loaded up all the Steampunk elements I could and Stickled the butterflies for added detail.
I can't wait to hang this collage up in my foyer.....the first girly thing I've added into "Boyville"
I hope you all enjoy a happy and productive day with lots of time to be creative : ) G

  2. Stunning I love Steam Punk and this is like a dream you really put your heart and soul into this project bravo!
