4th Day of 12 days of Christmas with Smeared and Smudged
here's hoping blogger will autopost this ok this time.
My 4th day project is also an entry into this weeks Smudgy Antics Challenge. This week the task is to create something along the "Steampunk on the Darkside" theme.
My project is a "Christmas tree". It has a gothic fairy, Seriba, from the range from Smeared Ink sitting on top.
I used a papermache cone that a friend had previously given me and covered in dark green coredinations that I had lightly crumpled and sanded.
The cogs are TH die cuts, heat embossed with metallic powders. I stapled on some small boiled sweets to the cogs and then stuck to the tree base with strong glue dots.
The comes Seriba. I coloured her with my pencils then scanned and printed out several images - reversing half of them. The wings are made from a drinks can that I embossed with some TH gears. The opposite aspects so the tree can be viewed from all sides without seeing plain card.
Hence the "inside" of both sides also have the relevant side of the image stuck to it.
As you can see from her feet here.
