Hi everyone! Time for some Retro Cafe Art Gallery fun using the
The Cameo frame was cut down just a bit to make it fit perfectly into the frame. I added lots and lots of different metallic paints and patinas to everything until I got the look I liked.
The outside is painted first and then I added Copper Crackle Texture paste with the Fish Scales stencil. Very cool finish.
The inside is where I used gold embossed stamping on the sides. The Tiny Vials are filled with Micro Beads. The Glass and Micro beads on the back that fill up the background are applied with Soft Gel.
I have several salvaged items in this piece...so I used the title SALVAGED on the front. I bought the gears in Ohio. They are actual vintage clock gears, I think. (They're not glued to the piece, they're just there for aesthetics.)
The picture is from the Vintage Steampunk ATC backgrounds sheet as well as the little labels on the bottles.
You've got to LOVE the new Flourishes!!!
So check out all the links and get to work!!!
