Hello and welcome to our hop!

This hop will give you amazing ideas and inspiration!

We have such a talented group of designers participating in the hop - so be sure to hop over to the Designer Crafts Connection blog to check them all out. 

This hop is right up my ally, I love dress forms, vintage, cogs, steampunk! Eek!

I ended up buying my products to work with! I couldn't leave it to chance!

What I have for you today is the......

            "Steampunk Dreams" Dress Form Album

Let's just say it has been a dream to work on this album!

I am not doing a step out as there are way to many pages. I am showing you each page and some close ups. I will list products used.


Here she is! 

I love the way it turned out! I have photos to add and some more trinkets!

One of the tags removed from 1 of three pockets

Check out those pipes!!! I love the way they turned out. I colored them with colored pencil and then covered in Baked Textures - Vintage Beeswax.

Another pull out tag - tri fold

More pockects

Dress form top has paper applied with a top coat of Baked Textures - Vintage Beeswax, it is stunning. For the metal part of dress form I painted it and shaded it with colored pencils and also covered it in Baked Textures.

I am in love with this album!

I can see me doing more of these albums, so much fun.

The chipboard is very sturdy, I painted it, heated it, colored it, inked it, really nice quality.

This is not a paid endorsement! I bought all of my supplies.

I sure hope you enjoyed this post as much as I enjoyed crafting it!!!!
