My Design Team project for Belinda Basson this month features Lady Vagabond and her wonderful airship. I used lots of Stamperia products and they are listed at the end of this post.
I began by a recycling an old picture frame. The frame was covered in a sheet of Stamperia Rice Paper, attached with Stamperia Mix Media Glue. I chose an image from the Lady Vagabond 12" x 12" paper pad to show behind the frame. I thought the rooftops were appropriate for the airship to fly above.
The next step was to paint the covered frame with Stamperia Allegro Paints ( Turquoise and Mattone) dabbing the paint on randomly and leaving it to dry. I love the way the image from the rice paper still shows through.
I also applied a coat of Stamperia Crackle Paste (Transparent), thorough a Media Stencil and when dry I was left with some wonderful cracks and a slight sheen over the frame. I think you can just about see the crackle in the above photograph.
Next, I used some quick setting Resin from my stash, Belinda's Lady Vagabond's airship mould along with the large set of wings mould and I painted these with black gesso before giving them a coat of Allegro Paint in various shades.
Once the paint had dried I applied Stamperia Cerantica waxes, in Metallic Turquoise and White to bring out the highlights in the airship.
The tops of the wings got a coat of Cerantica Argento Metallico (Silver) to bring out the beautiful detail of the wings.
I assembled the pieces for the airship, adding the large set of wings behind and attached these with silicone glue.
To create the scene at the bottom of the frame I used a selection of Belinda's die cut chipboard pieces.
On the left hand side I used a Stamperia bottle to house a 'map' constructed of Lady Vagabond Design Paper and I attached a chain from my stash to the bottle for added interest.
And here again is a final look at the completed project.
