Steampunk Queen Event at the Lost Coast Portal to Creativity!

Wow, what a twist on Alice! But that is just what you will find in our latest event at the The Lost Coast Portal to Creativity !  I had to put on my thinking cap and then took it off because it just was no good :)  Steampunk is not my easiest style to work with and I think I ended up with a steampunk/Finnabair style Red Queen but I loved the process of getting her there!  Once again I used my sherpa, the Art Sherpa that is, to give a fabulous process to try with acrylic paints and with that and a hand drawn queen mask the fun began!  There is quiet a rainbow on my entire table right now and it makes me smile! 

I had no masking medium...Grumbacher's Frisket is on my wish list at the top after this fun techinique!  So I splashed her on cardstock and fussy cut her out...easy solution :)  The a DP run through with a cogs and gears embossing folder and she had her home.  I used two of Lost Coast Designs Red Queens from the Alice and Queen Sitting Queen Set colored with Spectrum Noir Markers trying to use some of the colors in the big splashed queen.  Fussy cut and attached to the bottom then the agony/fun began as I searched for gears and cogs that I darn well know I have but nothing was found.  Then the fabulous Doll Accessories stamp set from Lost Coast Designs and found some awesome (to me) things to give a steampunk feel.  Goggles and eyes, watches, thimble, coin, mirror for her to admire herself, key , and then some bits and bobs of old jewelry under for the stamped pieces to rest on and around.  A brown piece of cardstock run through the same embossing folder to layer her own and she was done!

 The Steampunk Queen Event starts on February 11 - 14
