Leslierahye's Very Steampunk Valentines Blog Hop - February 13th


Welcome to
3rd Annual Very Steampunk Valentine
Blog Hop
Hosted by non other than Leslierahye
who continues to amaze me with all her skills and creativity
She is constantly in creation mode for as long as I can remember
Despite the freezing cold that all of us have endured thus far in 2014
we still go outside and wrestle the elements to 
send love greetings to our friends and family
My initial project was an EPIC FAILURE!!! 
So wasn't thinking about the physics of gravity ... lol
Jump into plan "B"
Here is a my piece dedicated to my love of 
Steampunk
I started out by getting a candy heart shaped bowl from the dollar store
I rubbed some Vaseline to keep it from adhering to the bowl once it's completely dry
I used Mod Podge and mixed magicals into it to get the rich vibrant colors 
 I also sprayed my shelled heart with beautiful spray from LSG
I used thin dies from  Cheery Lynn Designs 
Gears, Heart n Gears to shape the heart
Gear Mesh Border  for the background dimension


I am also submitting this project in the Lindy's Stamp Gang 
Monthly Color Challege
INGREDIENTS
Sprays
Opal Sea Oats, Tibetan Poppy Teal
Silent Night Silver, Azure Sea Aster
Magicals
Cheshire Cat Check and Tibetan Poppy Teal
Embossing Powders
Magic Moon Pearls and Sunrise Salmon Gold

Thanks for stopping by
Happy Valentine's Day

So beautiful! This piece reminds me of a frozen bubble (which is beautiful enough on its own) but then it has such pretty colours and the gears, oh the gears.
