Post 181- Steampunk Mixed Media Layout: Father

Hi friends :)

I'd like to share a Masculine Mixed Media Layout today. This is dedicated to my dad and fathers everywhere :) It is to celebrate Father's Day. I used the Steampunk Style in this layout by including clocks, gears, cogs, metal chain, metal stars, moustaches, goggles and top hat. Two of the sentiments read "support" and "courage" because my dad has been a big support and has always taught us to have courage. I have created multiple layers of color by using gelatos, zigs and distress inks. The tags are die cuts and also some old packaging. Did background stamping and stenciling. To give texture added modelling paste through a stencil. Then, added doodled details with white acrylic paint. Finished off the project with some white splatter.
