Steampunk Mixed Media Notebook Cover

Namaste Friends!!

Kriti this side….I hope you all are doing great…..

The” Mixed Media Challenge ” is currently running on Itsy Bitsy blog……and my today’s inspiration is for the same. I have altered a notebook cover in steampunk style. Although its not my genre….but I tried something different this time.

This is what I made!

I have a step -by – step tutorial for this….


Step 1 :  First, take a notebook and apply Little Birdie’s black gesso all over it to make the surface non-porous.

Step 2: To add some texture, I pasted some torn pieces of paper over the base with glue.

Step 3: After that, cover the surface with black gesso again.

Step 4: Now the most important part…That’s to decide the composition. I took some gear and flourish chipboards from the store and pasted over the base with the help of heavy gel medium. To give some extra interest, I adhered some half pearls in different sizes.

Step 5: After everything is dried…..cover the entire base with black gesso again.

Step 6: Finally, the most interesting part is to play with the colours. I have selected Little Birdie Patina Glaze and Copper Blaze metallic waxes to highlight the textures and chip boards with the help of finger.

And Ta- DA ……its ready…..
