steampunk notebook

Hi and hello to everyone ...
Suzanne here – and my apologies for being late again ... the time change had me confused.
Today I'm sharing a little steampunk notebook.

from the plates
167 large men PLATESW167
113 mannen PL.ATESW113
telescoop SW P11013 
air bicycle SW P11009 
background stamp ledger SW S14010

distress paint
Archival inkpad jet black DP-AIP06633 
some metal embellishments
reactive metall paint
some sheets of coffee dyed paper

front outside

 back outside
The covers are beermats colored with reactive metal paints - which I also used to 'age' the metal embellishments. For the insides I slightly mixed distress paints rusty hinge and walnut stain with a brush while applying. When this was dry I dabbed on some antiqued bronze and added a bit of frantage embossing enamel aged silver to the edges. All the images were stamped with the inkpad jet black.
Watercolor pencils and a waterbrush were used to color in the images on the front and back.
I still have to practise quite a lot with those reactive metal paints but I love them, I so love how they react.

So, I hope you like this a bit - and forgive me my being late again :-)
Have a great Sunday all of you ...

Hugs, Suzanne xx
