Steampunk Tag Art

Hi everyone!  Robin here with tag art for you today.  What do you suppose it says about me that I like Steampunk, but I always make it pink? 


My set of pastels from Royal Langnickel has both pencils and sticks and also has a blending stump and kneaded eraser.  To really showcase these pastels, I chose to use the Steampunked Machines collage sheet.  The black and white images are perfect for coloring.  When you are using pastels, remember to seal your work so that the color doesn't smear or rub off completely.  You can buy professional fixatives or use hair spray.  Beware though, that if you choose to use the hair spray your work may yellow over time.


I colored the collage images with the pencils and colored the tag with the sticks.  To get the skin tone, I colored the gentleman lightly with pink then orange and blended the colors together with the blending stump.


I added a few embellishments.  Two chipboard gears which were dipped in a black ink pad give this tag a little dimension and two pieces of German scrap give it a little shine.



Remember this month Altered Pages is partnering with Royal & Langnickel.  In celebration of that along with October being breast cancer awareness month we are giving away this beautiful Pink Art Journal.

 Handy Tip for Artists, Recyclers and Neat Freaks! I have a follow-up to the Citra-Sol method for creating fabulous background pages and collages.   I bought a big bag of navel oranges and realized I had the ingredients to make my own solvent!   Simply take a clean glass jar, peel the rind from the oranges and place all the rind/peels, without the pulp (tangerines, oranges, navels) into the jar.   Pour enough vinegar over the peels to cover them.    Allow the jar to sit for a week or two and VOILA!     You have made your own solvent for literally pennies.    You will notice the liquid getting a bit thicker than the plain vinegar and it does not smell bad!!! I now have a  HUGE jar on the window sill!       Be careful and only use this after testing on a safe spot.
