This is Us

 Hello Crafty Friends,

Today I have a fun little project that I created for Clear Scraps using one of their fabulous This Is US Desktop Frame.  I love Steampunk and all the images, gears, cogs and top hats that go with it.   I had some fun with photo editing and got out some of my favorite things from my stash.  Our grandson recently visited so I used a photo of him and grandpa in a playful way.

I began by embossing some metallic paper and covering the frame base.

Some editing was done to the photo by removing the background and adding some clipart top hats.

I used another embossing folder to add gears and texture to the top frame piece.

All the frame elements were layered together.

I covered the frame with Foundry Wax and then heat set.  I added an extra color to give the project that rusted look.  Everything was heat set to make it permanent.

After digging around in my stash I found what I wanted to add to the frame making it as steampunk as possible.

I glued everything in place and then added a little fun to the photo using some small dies and gears.

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you enjoyed my steampunk moment.
