2  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General / Mechanical Treasure Chest on: June 26, 2016 02:58:11 PM
Earlier I had mentioned Alpha Stamps theme for June is mermaids, sea creatures, and steampunk, and saved all of the steampunk elements for a mechanical treasure chest. The lid of the chest includes one of my favorite images from the G45 Voyage Beneath the Sea paper, this dapper snapper-riding gent that's ready for adventure. He's been glued onto a coil made from paper covered wire so he's sproingy. It reminds me of those metal animals on giant springs at the park. The lid also has a really cool 6 x 6 Gears Texture Sheet that I painted with Silks and cut to fit inside the lid's frame. There's also a metal clock with a spinning hand, a bronze octopus charm, a gorgeous  brass patina starfish, and an undersea beauty framed in a bronze gear.

Inside the chest is a miniature book. Well, maybe it is just small.

I'm sort of fascinated with moving paper of all kinds, like pop-ups, spinning dials, and paper toys, so I added some mechanical parts to the book's pages. Sir Ballyhoo will remove his monocle and in a most distinguished voice announce, "You don't say?" (Not really, but that is what I imagine he's saying.)

You can pull the gear on this page and catch a fish:

There's a surprise under the shell but it is PG-13.

And a few more pages. If you want to see the rest and a short video of the parts in action you can check 'em out on my blog. I loved this project!

That's a happy little crab! I like how you've added a crocheted border to a cross stitched piece. Very nice!

I like that you continued the stripe and Little Angel's wing around the side of the house; one can't fly well with a clipped wing! These must have been lost in transit because I still don't have them in my hands.  Cheesy

This is incredible! You'd never know you haven't done much free motion embroidery...Hades looks amazing! I really like that you've added the buttons and beads. Your partner must be thrilled to bits!

This ROCKS, btw!

10  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / Mermaid's Treasure Mini Houses on: June 23, 2016 08:34:15 AM
Alpha Stamps theme this month is "Beneath the Sea"; mermaids, treasure chests, sea creatures, and steampunk! I decorated little houses to hold a mermaid's collection of found items. I'm saving the steampunk part for later.

Oh, so tiny!
