Hello everyone .Want to share this steampunk mixed media Eiffel tower i made for my dear friend linda . This tower is made of chipboard and painted it black. Then crackle painted an went over with white paint and used black distress ink to get the look i was after. Used a lot of Tim Holtz hardware, stamps and die.to get the steampunk look.Also used Lindy`s black embossing powder


Here is a link to Linda`s channel. She has some great tutorials on mixed media and clay :-)

Have fun creating :-)







Feel free to copy this tower if you want to create it :-)
 The tower is made from one piece of chipboard and cut half way with a knife between the each side.
then cut out the rest with a knife


Used tyvek envelope stripe to glue it together and painted it black 



Painted the outside black andcrackle medium random around 

Put 2 pieces of chipboard inside to stiffen the tower

When the crackle medium was dry i painted over with white paint


Wish you all a great day and thanks for stopping by :-)
