Steampunk Altered/Upcycled Book and VIDEO TUTORIAL with VOICE for Little Birdie Crafts

Welcome to my creative space!

Hi everyone! I'm back to share an upcycled project with you today. I altered an old book with steampunk and poppies – a perfect pairing. The gorgeous flowers and clock are fussy cut from the Poppies & Roses collection. 

Here's a close-up of the fabulous beetle molded from the Zuri Designs Loveable Bugs set and colored with amazing Little Birdie Metallic Waxes.

I adore living atop a hill in the beautiful countryside of Ohio, but it does have it's limitations when it comes to internet speed which dwindled to nearly nothing when the stay at home orders came down for COVID-19. As a result, I was unable to upload videos for a while. Our service is improving, so I can once again create videos for you! This is my second video with voice. I hope you like it.

In this video I also share techniques using more amazing Little Birdie supplies: Crackle Paste; Tinted Metallic Paints; Primed Chipboard; and Metallic Waxes.


More close-up photos can be viewed on the Little Birdie Crafts Blog HERE.
