STEAMPUNK Canvas with Leaky Shed!

What wonderful month! If you have been following this blog you know the Altered Pages Design Team is partnering with the Leaky Shed Design Team. I hope you have enjoyed all the projects so far this month... I think they have been fantastic.   Be sure to check back each day for more inspirational projects by each team.
Today I want to share with you my Steampunk Canvas Board.  The image I used for the background is from the Altered Pages Steampunk & Science Collage Sheet.

The Canvas Board was covered with a generous coat of Art Anthology Acrylic Paint. 

Once the Art Anthology Acrylic Paint was dry, it was sprayed with Dylusion Spray Ink. After drying ink edges with StazOn Midi Spiced Chai ink.

The Altered Pages Steampunk & Science Collage Sheet was coated with IMAGINE CRAFTS Creative Medium. Using a paper towel Dylusion Spray Ink was wiped over the image to distress. Finally it was lightly sprayed with   IMAGINE CRAFTS GooseBumps.

The Leaky Shed Ornithoper Was inked with StazOn Jet Black and heat embossed with clear embossing powder several times. 

The Leaky Shed Chipboard Gears were inked with Delicata Golden Glitz the edges were gently distressed with StazOn Jet Black. Adhere to the canvas board and you have an AWESOME STEAMPUNK Canvas!

Rolling with my Gel Press

I love experimenting with different ways to create texture and interest on my Gel Press and for many years now I have turned to fun foam to help do this when monoprinting.  I love to team the fun foam with my dies to create my own stamps and texture plates.  I used this techniques for my prints in January that I shared here on the blog. There are lots of dies that have detail, meaning lots of scrap pieces which you can randomly stick onto cardboard giving you a stamp as well as using the actually die cut shape as a stamp.  Another idea is using them attached to a toilet roll to create a brayer like roller was shared at my local scrapbook store and on a video by Birgit Koopsen last year.  I love playing with this method. The toilet roll is slipped over a paint roller handle.

Here you can see some of my texture creations that I have on hand for my play today.

One texture I love is created using a piece of burlap ribbon, which I have stuck onto a toilet roll. My first layer above used th…

The Gift Card Card

Robin here and today I have a project for you that is a fun way to give gift cards or cash.  

You will need two envelopes for this project.  One is what the post office calls the 6 1/4 Commercial envelope.  When I was growing up we just called it a letter envelope.  It's a smaller rectangle than the #10, being just 3 5/8" x 6 1/4".  The other is a standard A6.  I chose the A6 because it fits inside the letter envelope when it's folded in half and it's also large enough to hold a check or cash, as well as a gift card.

With the flap against the body of the envelope, fold it in half from side to side.  Cut the flap in half and trim the inside cuts at an angle so that they don't interfere with the fold or get bunched up. 

Decorate the flap side of your envelope.  This will be the inside of your card.  Fold the envelope again and decorate the side that will be the front of your card.

Cut a panel of card stock to fit inside the 6 1/4 Commercial (letter) envelope.  Att…
