Altered Steampunk Notebook

Altering things is so much fun and environmentally good because instead of throwing stuff away you reuse them, upgrade them and alter them into something new and exciting! I always have a small notebook with me to write ideas, doodle things and make lists, so instead of living it as it was I altered it into a steampunk extravaganza. This is a DT project for Spellbinders that I had a lot of fun creating!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Steampunk is basically a genre in art that combines Victorian age machines and mechanical parts with fantasy, science fiction and more to create art. So to create the steampunk look I used clock parts, springs, metal parts and embellishments in a collage of "moving" parts. I also created a dark look to the cover to enhance that look.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The main focal point of the notebook is the mini shadow box created by upgrading the front cover and adding a the Spellbinders square bezel filled with clock parts and other embellishments.
A little tip: when you work with small parts to create a collage use tweezers to help you position all the different embellishments exactly where you want them.

Have fun creating!
