If your child has one you should go get it and 
have a go of it, it is soo much fun.
This is a Spirograph and learning to draw face .
In the them of blue!

Bigger Steampunk AIRSHIP TWO

The Airship ONE HERE
was just the first of a few i made 
once i knew that pattern was right it was time to 
grab LOTS of black card stock and make a bigger one
 and added the silver acrylic paint after it was all put together
to look metalic






Here you can get an idea of the size the pattern is now

3D Hot air balloon Steampunked WITH robot

Then came a Steampunked Hot air balloon with 
steampunked Robot to ride in it 
After designing in Make the cut , cutting it and making
it up I then took all the scraps of black card stock i had 
left over from the cutting and ran it through the ebosser 
using as many Steampunk like embossing folders i could 
find in my collection. And added to the balloon over lapping 
and random as i could get them . Then I put sliver acrylic paint
on my finger and lightly went over all the raised areas .



 Felt it also needed a gear boarder around it which i 
made with Make the cut and  cut 6 layers to give it demention
 
 Robot was designed in make the cut as well by me

3D Steampunk airship ONE

This years festival was to be airships. 
So back late last year i set to making a pattern for 
an air ship small but to see I was on the right track 
of making it .
Before cutting in using the brown card stock i had i 
grabbed a orange (that i knew i would not miss if it 
did not work)
Cut it out went together so  well I was soo pleased 
with it that I added trims onto it to get the thickness 
look that i was after I layered 6 of the same gears 
on top of each other . Did some quilled card stock to 
add other trims
 It was all about building up the look till I was soo 
happy with it (but had done all this work and it is 
ORANGE!)
 Added the pipe work at the back shapping the pipe
pieces as i glued them together .










 So once it was all done I was in love with it that I 
then took brown acrylic paint and gave it two coats of 
it. After it was dry I used some gold and sliver acrylic
paint on my fingers and used it to highlight the raised 
areas.
And sat alongside the small train set at the festival
