Scrapbook Album: Steampunk, 8″x8″ Chipboard Mini

Posted by on Jun 23, 2012 in Videos | 31 comments

Hi, everyone! I wanted to share with you my completed “Steampunk” mini album which I have been working on FOREVER! LOL! It is an 8″x8″ chipboard album with a ribbon binding featuring the Graphic 45 “Steampunk Debutante” paper collection. It’s a monster, but it’s beautiful & I love how it turned out. It’s going to hurt a little to send this one off into the world, but I know it’s going to make someone else happy & that’s all that matters. :D Here are links to the recordings of my UStream show where I worked on the “Steampunk Debutante” album: The links above don’t have the entire album, but they do have some of it. Below are links to YouTube tutorials that relate to pockets/tags/etc. found in the “Steampunk Debutante” album:

This is the first this I created a video like this. Since I cannot AND talk AND concentrate on my painting at the same time, I added a voice over of the process later on. I apologize for my funny voice and accent =_=; some people asked me to give a tutorial before…and now you can kinda hear why I was hesitating to do so..but I hope you will like it nonetheless visit my website at: to see more for my artwork

  11. Beautiful! Love the paper collection!

  12. Awesome, Gorgeous, Beautiful!! Absolutely love it! Thank you so much for the inspiration and entertainment!!

  13. I’m so glad you were inspired to make one for yourself & that you had so much fun putting it together! Your album sounds beautiful ~ I’m so happy I was able to inspire you to make a treasure for yourself. :D

  14. I absolutely love your work. I didn’t figure out yet how to use water colours cause it never looks like it should do so I prefer copics for precise artwork. But the way you are able to paint so many details on a face as small as your fingernail is just gorgeous! Btw. I think that 30 minutes for the outlines is an extremely short time since I spend one or two hours on drawing lines for a picture as small like yours. I would also love to see more of your work and will stalk your homepage soon ;)

  15. Is it possible to use white acrylic paint if I don’t have white ink?

  16. I’m wondering about the white ink. What is it called and where can I find it?

  17. Your work is beautiful. :) I admire your skill.

  18. Fantastic~

  19. ja dat is gewoon een super kleine kwast :) Ik gebruik van gogh waterverf maar alle waterverf is goed genoeg.

  20. Yay een nederlander xD maar wat gebruikt je eigenlijk voor de lineart? Is dat gewoon een hele kleine kwast? En welke verf gebruik je dan?

  21. love that liner at the end.

  22. thank you :)

  23. Great art work. I invite you to me

  24. Beautiful to watch. I’m learning watercolor painting and loved your tutorial

  25. glad you like this video :) i do the highlights with white ink. white watercolour doesn’t work for me since it washes away easily or the white just is not strong enough to see. you could use white acrylics for this as well i think. and of course you can use ink :)

  26. This video is AWESOME. I do have a question, during the touch ups and highlights, are you using watercolors or just acrylic? Do you think I might be able to use ink to highlight and outline? Thanks so much!

  27. it came out amazing!

  28. thank you :) you should leave the pencil sketch the way it is, but try to make the pencil lineart as clean as possible. after you coloured everything in use a millimeter pencil ( or a very very thin pencil) and paint over those pencil lines. that is what I always do :)

  29. Um, I wanna ask you. I’m a beginner and I want to know before we colour the pict with watercolor. What must we do with the lineart? Just let it be pencil sketch or what? Thanks, I hope u’ll answer :)
    Btw, this is perfect!! XD

  30. JUST FUCKING PERFECT, i want to draw and paint like you, im your fan.

  31. thank you :)  i used watercolour and a very very thin brush
