My Final post for SASPC

Hi Everyone I hope you are all well and that your christmas preparations are well underway.I am sad to say that this will be my last blog post for SASPC I will be publishing a how to in December 
for their sponsor boozy bear, I hope you enjoy this piece.
I decided to do 2 journal pages for my last post and have used Pentart rust formula along with a couple of other mediums.
I started with Deco art media modelling paste in white which I put through a DaliART Stencils - Clock Face - 7x7".
I randomly applied some Deco art crackle paste in area's as well to add texture I put it aside to dry.
 Deco art chalk paint in Lace was used to paint over the entire page once dry I applied a coat of pentart silk paint dark brown over the page and wiped back with a dry tissue.
with station and used a wash of sienna and Prussian blue hue.
Antiquing cream in patina was used over the crackle paste and over areas of the clock face.
I knocked this back till I was happy with it.
I used the same stamp to stamp into air dry clay which when dry i painted with Raw umber and prussian blue hue. Once dried I highlighted with finnabairs wax's.
I used clay pieces from a mould I have and painted and guided with finnabairs wax's.
 NEW Stamperia Natural Rubber Stamp crackle was stamped in areas across the page.
Other embellishments were used to across both pages the rust effect at the bottom of both pages was created using pentart rusting powders.
A close up of the project showing the second clay piece using a Tim Holtz stamp.
Coloured using the same technique as the other one.
I have thoroughly enjoyed being part of this team and will try to pop back and take part in the monthly challenge when I can. I hope you have all enjoyed my projects over the last two years.
I will still be here on my blog creating steam punk pieces for you all to enjoy.
You have all been awesome 
Cheers Dee X

New October Challenge over at SASPC

Hi everyone Dee here with a Gothic tag for you
I love gothic it reminds me of vampires 
and ghosts.
 the base of this tag was inspired by France Pappillon 
and one of her mixed media shorty video's.
 I just layered it up with deco art's ferro iron paste and
a strip of wire mesh.
 A few bits of embossed elements and a wax compass
I did also make my own stamped tissue 
paper just visible in this photo.
 Another home made embellishment.
 a melted drop of embossing metal below .
 The stamp used to create this was a chocolate baroque 
gothic fragments.
I hope you all like my tag and a big thank you to France Papillon for all 
of the inspiration she inspires in us.
Cheers Dee x

New Challenge over at SASPC

Hi everyone Dee here with my latest post for the SASPC challenge
I did something slightly different with this tag I used an acrylic 
pour to create the background for this tag.
I also used paper clay pieces cogs and watch parts from a mould I assembled
them all together on a circle.
I painted with Deco art raw umber fluid acrylic, I then used Finnabairs
 wax and followed with Antiquing cream in both white and patina,
Black modelling paste was put through a deco art stencil.
A close up of the background.
This shows the background from a different view.
Little paperclay cogs to the right corner of the tag.
I hope you all like what I did with this Tag it is such an interesting 
result with paint pouring.
I am proud to be a member of Sandee & amelie's design team.
Please feel free to let us know what you think

Deco Art Journal With Vintage Wash and chalky Finish paint

Hi everyone Dee here with a post using the new Vintage wash paints & the Eileen Hull Journal die from Sizzix. I am in love with the colours & the whole feel of this journal it's
like old worn soft leather I can't explain but its so tactile and vibrant.

Method Used


  1. Cut the grey board with the Eileen Hull Journal die.
  2. Glue together I used artist tape.
  3. Paint with Chalky Finish paints painting the colours randomly over both sides of the Journal.
  4. Once dry follow with the Vintage wash in Turquoise knocking back with a dry cloth and a baby wipe in the area's that i wanted clear colour follow this with the Patina Vintage wash.
  5. For the inside I wanted a more vibrant red so used the Beige & Red Orange with only a tiny bit of Turquoise.
  6. Seal the whole surface with Soft Touch Varnish.
  7. Once all dry I stamped the script stamp randomly using Stazon ink.
  8. I then followed this with the alphabet stamp and versfine ink using the stamp and bond then heat set.
  9. Using a brush dab the gold pigment powder over the stamp and bond then using a large fluffy brush stroke over to remove the access powder.
  10. To colour the coin I painted first with gold media fluid followed by raw umber.
