Steampunk Calendar by Heather Thompson

I needed a day to just paint and be by my self, I loose myself in painting. What better to do on a blistering cold day here in the Midwest.

I gathered a bunch of Steampunk Chipboard, I gathered a variety of my favourite colours. Nicole’s chipboards are delicate and I take some fine brush. I started with the steampunk heart and layered and glazed. A few extra metal pieces.

It took me a few good hours to paint, Once painted I added a thick layer of crackle glaze and set aside to dry. Once dried I used a dirty wash with my three favourite colours Quinnadricone Gold, Yellow Iron Oxide, Paynes Grey. I add a bit of water and top the glaze with the dirty wash .

Once everything was painted I cut out the flaps for the book. Using the Da Vinci Code paper collection, I love all the background details, history,  sayings and medicine in the paper.

This is a photo heavy post today. Lots of layers and flaps. I will end up putting a calendar in here once I figure out how to print it out and make it look good.





There are a number of steampunk chipboards I have never used yet, the Steampunk Divers Helmet is one of them.

Enjoy the photos.

Some added nail heads to some of the pieces to add a bit more texture.


One of my favourite Steampunk pieces are the Steampunk Flourish’s
