GC110: Gears, Cogs and Watch Bits

This week on Gingersnap Creations we're doing Gears, Cogs, and Watch Bits. Our sponsor this month, Dezinaworld, sent us some great Steampunk collage sheets to use in our art.

I used one of the Steampunk tags (yes, I cut up a tag...gasp!) To make this 3D watch piece. Recently, while I was shopping, I came across these ART PARTS from Studio 490. They are a layered chipboard piece (front & back).

You could use just the chipboard piece out of the bag. I was going for a shiny brass look and used a paint dabber to add the copper paint. After it dried I gave it a little sponged Vintage Photo to take down the brightness a bit.

I simply printed the Dezinaworld tags on copy paper and cut out a portion of the Jules Vern tag for the background. I added in a few watch parts and a light bulb. And done!

I'm not sure what I'm going to do with my Steampunk watch but I'll find something to do with it.

Create your own Gears, Cogs, and Watch Bits piece and posted it on the Gingersnap Creations blog.
