At the bottom of this post you will see all sorts of creations to do with Spring and Steampunk.
Aren't they fantastic?
Here are the supplies I used:
- Assorted spring colored fabric.
- Embossed faux leather.
- Shiny buttons
- Metallic gold thread and needle.
- Tim Holtz Gears die and Big Shot.
- Inka Gold-gold.
- Adhesive, permanent pen and pinking shears.
- Hair clips.
I made a pattern from stiff card stock and traced with the permanent pen.
Next I used the pinking shears to cut them out. I trimmed them slightly to fit the larger gear. I ran the faux leather through my big shot with the gears die.
For the circle under the smaller gear, I just lightly traced the gear onto card stock and used that as my pattern.
To color the gears, I used my finger to apply the gold, rubbing just over the embossed design.
|You can tell the difference of before and after from the Inka Gold.|
Here are my shapes.
I used canvas material on the back for when I attach the hair clip.
It's best to cut out different shades of fabric because what might have looked good at first may not near the completion. I must have changed these colors 5 times!
Then I secured everything in place with the gold thread and button.
I used alligator hair clips for my Steampunk flowers. You can get alligator clips at beauty supply shops and on Etsy.
