High Hopes... by Katie

Hello! This year has been a year of musical inspiration for our challenges, taken from songs that are some of Kim's favourites. The theme for August's Dare is High Hopes! ANYTHING GOES as you unleash your creative talents for this challenge.   The song High Hopes by Panic! At the Disco goes out to everyone who might feel alone or that life is feeding them opposition. Kim says "Choose what you need and just go for IT! Know that you have what it takes to push up and come out on top." Click below to listen to this upbeat song, and share your project with us below for a chance to win!

Hi all! I have a new tutorial showing you how to create this steampunk wall hanging.

Paint the wings with black metallic paint and sprinkle on the embossing powder before it dries. Repeat this process with the cogs and word.

Paint the base and then add a texture paste before adding the embossing powder and melting it.

Keep adding layers of embossing powders and then start adding micro beads into the mix to layer up the texture. once everything has set, start gluing down the layers of cogs and the wings. Add pearls, charms and beads to the project to finish it.

Here's a look at some of the finished closeups.
