Steampunk Hat Gift Box

Happy Monday everyone, today I have a project inspired by Art Anthology's mood board for September.
I decided to make a gift box to hold a present for a friend that loves steampunk. I started by altering a papermache box and lid for the top of the hat. 
Art Anthology paints were added to 3D Texture Fade Mechanicals to start the foundation of the hat box. Hot glue was added around the brim and seams of the hat to mimic rivets. 
Art Anthology's Coloration Sprays were used to color the flowers then steampunk metal embellishments as well as feathers were added to finish off the project. 
This was a very easy project and hope you enjoyed. For your pleasure I have included a YOUTUBE video of my creative process. Thank you for stopping by and have a beautiful day !

Mixed Media Acetate Tag

Hi everyone, today I have a new mixed media project for you on an acetate tag.  Inspired by Art Anthology's Moodboard this month (above). 
I was so excited to create with these beautiful autumn colors. A combination of sprays and paints as well as stamped images and stenciling. 
Seed beads, mica flakes, lace, moss and rusty items helped add that special touch to the tag. 
For your pleasure I have included a YOUTUBE video to sit back and watch my creative process. I hope you enjoy and were inspired !  xoxo Toni
