Anything Steampunk

 Hi everyone!

    It is a new challenge over at Sandee and amelies steampunk challenge this month 

"Anything Goes!" 

I love it when the subject is as open as Anything Goes....the only problem is that sometimes it can be difficult to think of something when it could be anything!
 I was ok this time because I had a pendant that I wanted to alter and had been meaning to do it for  awhile...I was just waiting for the right time...

The pendant was a bright silver - so the first thing I did was paint it with Decoart Media fluid acrylic paint in Carbon black. When dry I gave it the lightest dry brushing with Decoart Dazzling Metallic paint in Champagne Gold.

 I cut some printed script paper to go inside the pendant and cut out a face from a vintage photo

After attaching them to the pendant I filled the pendant with Glossy Accents.
I then selected some cogs and gears to sit inside the frame - carefully setting them in place in the wet glue with a pair of tweezers

I then attached a brass watch charm to the base of the pendant and covered the join with a jewellery finding.

I attached more tiny cogs and gears and the word 'love' - and there it is...
an 'Anything Goes' Steampunk pendant!

Not a very long post today - Sometimes Steampunk can really be that easy!

Even if Steampunk isn't your usual style why not come on over and give it a go?
If you have never tried it before then this challenge is a perfect placed to start...

 You might just have a lot of fun doing it!

Come and join us at Sandee and amelies Steampunk Challenge....

Happy Crafting!
