Mixed Media Steampunk Rusty Layout


I keep exploring my steampunk vintage side and today I've made this mixed media steampunk rusty layout inspired by Mixed Media & Art blog and its September moodboard challenge. I have used lots of products from my last haul and some others I already had.


Sigo explorando mi lado steampunk vintage y hoy he realizado este layout mixed media steampunk oxidado, inspirado en el panel de inspiración de septiembre del blog Mixed Media & Art. He utilizado un montón de productos de mi último haul de compras y algunos otros que ya tenía.

I started creating a beautiful background with texture paste and a stencil, and I used Lindy's sprays to color it. With the same stencil from AB Studio I created some shadows using distress oxides.

Comencé creando un bonito fondo con pasta de textura y un stencil, y usé sprays de Lindy's para dar color. Con el mismo stencil de AB Studio creé algunas sombras usando distress oxides.

While the oxides were drying (it takes a while) I prepared all the elements for my composition. I used Mitform Castings metallic pieces and Kora Projects chipboards to create steampunk style decoration. First I covered them all with black gesso, then added some touches with Finnabair rust effect pastes and highlighted with Finn's waxes, discovering a wonderful color combination that I want to use all the time from now lol.

Mientras se secaban las oxides (que tardan un rato) preparé todos los elementos de mi composición. Usé piezas metálicas de Mitform Casting y chipboards de Kora Projects para crear decoración de estilo steampunk. Primero las cubrí con gesso negro, después di unos toques con pasta de efecto oxidado de Finnabair y realcé con ceras, descubriendo una combinación de colores que quiero usar todo el tiempo a partir de ahora jajajaja.

I used Fantasy dies to create more embellishments, I covered them with black gesso and Lindy's embossing powders which look crazy cool on top of black. Then I used the same technique: rust effect pastes and waxes.

Utilicé dies de Fantasy para crear más adornos, los cubrí con gesso negro y polvos de embossing de Lindy's, que son increíblemente chulos sobre negro. Entonces utilicé la misma técnica: pastas de efecto oxidado y ceras.

I glued all the elements of the composition around the photo and then I ended the background with some soft stamping here and there. To finish the layout I glued micro beads and semi-spheres with I painted with acrylic metallic paints.

Pegué todos los elementos de la composición alrededor de la foto y terminé el fondo con unos sellos aquí y allá. Para terminar el layout pegué micro bolitas y semi esferas que pinté con pinturas acrílicas metálicas.

This is the Mixed Media & Art moodboard for September challenge. I was inspired by the sketch with the word Journey, the gold and brown colors and the gear. 

Este es el tablero de inspiración de Mixed Media & Art del reto de septiembre. Me he inspirado en el esquema con la palabra Journey, los colores dorados y marrones y la tuerca.
