Mixed Media Monthly June Challenge – A Year of Choices


It's Mixed Media Monthly's 3rd birthday and the challenge is to look back at the year's challenges and redo one with a new twist! For mine, I chose #32 - Put a Stencil On It:


I just can't resist steampunk and I have quite a collection of gear stencils (and dies, and stamps, and embellishments…) But back to the stencils, I stenciled the inside of the box with a Tim Holtz mini gear stencil and the outside with gold embossing paste and a Dreamweavers stencil. The funny flying guy is a Deep Red stamp.


I layered lots of gear diecuts (cut from chipboard and colored with metallic Distress Stain) to make sure you know it's steampunk (ha ha) The wheel actually turns but with finger power and not real clockwork power. ;-)


I had fun making my little faux clockwork decoration. We would love to see you join in and share your projects with us. Head on over to the challenge post and take a look at the Design Team inspiration (and our new blog look)! Our sponsor this month is Donna Downey and she is generously donating a $50 gift certificate to her online store. Thank you Donna!


I am also going to enter this into the SanDee & Amelie's Steampunk Challenge for June - anything goes. Check out what they have going on there - always lots of lovely art to see. ;-)

The supplies I used for this project can be found at Sizzix or Simon Says Stamp. Follow the links below and a shopping you may go. ;-) Some links are affiliate links and there will be no additional cost to you but they help support my art endeavor. Thanks!

  10. I have a soft spot for steampunk, too This is such a great project! I am wondering what did you use for the 'basket'? The shape reminds me of french fries packaging.
