Life By The Seat Of My Pants

I’ll Be Your Honey Bee Very Steampunk Valentine

Posted on: February 11, 2012

I am so excited to be part of Leslie Rahye’s Very Steampunk Valentine blog hop!!!! This is my first time joining one of her hops, but it definitely won’t be my last.

If you’re not sure how a blog hop works, all you have to do is visit, follow and comment on EACH blog in the hop.  You will find a complete list at the bottom of this post that will lead you to each of the other bloggers on the hop. If you like steampunk, you will LOVE all of these projects! Oh, and did I mention there is blog candy??? Each blogger has something to give away, so you will have LOTS of chances to win!

I will be giving away a 15 piece set of molded Creative Paperclay® gears just like the ones used in this project. The winner will receive THREE large gears that have been embossed using the Cuttlebug “clockworks”  embossing folder, PLUS a set of TWELVE small gears in different shapes and sizes. All of the pieces will be left plain so you can paint and embellish them any way you want!  I will choose a winner at random and announce it here on February 15, 2012. Here is a close up of the ones I used in my project so you can see what you could win.

I am often inspired by music. It can be the words, the melody or even the images I see in my head as the song plays. This project was inspired by the song “Honey Bee” by Blake Shelton. It’s a sweet little love song and I adore the sentiment.

This project combines Creative Paperclay®, Amazing Mold Putty, Terri Sproul’s Mixers and Viva Las Vegas stamps. You can view the full video tutorial below!

I hope you enjoy this project as well as all of the other projects on the blog hop! Don’t forget to visit, follow and comment of each of the other blogs for your chance to win some SWEET blog candy!

Wow, awesome art and a video too!

Love your canvas…. you were sneaky showing us the grunge board and only using what most would discard!!! Super an amazing video. I will need to get up on videos soon! Awesome giveaway for one lucky winner.

I love the canvas. I really enjoyed watching your video. I have been chicken to try the paper clay, but watching you use it looked so easy. I think that is the next thing I will buy right after some of Terri’s mixers.

Wonderful piece of art. Love the way you made the background and your steampunk pieces are very cool.
