STEAMTOWN- 2nd FLOOR BOUDOIR - NEW COLLAGE SHEET & DIGI SETS - VIDEO TUTORIAL

Welcome back to the house on Irongate Street.  Looks like Helena has finished outfitting her second floor boudoir.  Just like the first floor, she has stuffed the room will all kinds of goodies.
Notice the wash stand with it’s Steampunk lamp, hanging towel & soap (which I’ll show you how to make).
The room is packed with cool steampunk clothing some of which is hanging on a fretwork screen. 
Some of the clothing is hanging on a wall rack, it looks like she’s quite the fashionista.
Flanking the mirrors are steampunk lamps and on the top are perfume bottles, powder boxes and compact cases.
In the center of the room is a beautiful marble bathtub.  In this post I’ve included a separate Faux Marble Paint Technique video tutorial to help you create this look on miniatures or artwork.
The cabinet in the back corner is loaded with perfume bottles, a lovely box, a fan and a hand mirror.
In the front of the fretwork screen are suitcases, a gramophone and a pair of boots.
And there is Gizmo, Helena’s cat,  sitting on the balcony.
Check out the stain glass hanging screens that you can slide to open or closed them, they run on a track made from a straw.  The frame of the screens are the same frame I used for the fretwork screen.

As always with the exception of the clock parts and a few other items from my stash, Alpha Stamps is carrying pretty much all of the items I’ve used as well as my the new collage sheets and digital image sets that compliment this project.


In a couple of weeks I'll be posting the last segment of the house on Irongate street which will involve the roof.

Then I'm going to take a break from Steampunk projects to tackle a few Halloween projects before returning with Dr. Whatsit's Steampunk Inventor House.

NEW COLLAGE SHEETS

This collage sheet contains Steampunk dresses, boots & hats.  In addition I’ve included body parts for making paper dolls.  The images are sized to work with 1:12 scale miniatures.

Just as with the Steampunk Fashions #1 Collage sheet, this sheet contains Steampunk dresses, boots & hats.  In addition I’ve included body parts for making paper dolls.  The images are sized to work with 1:12 scale miniatures.

This set of 34 images includes all of the images from both the Steampunk Fashions #1 and Steampunk Fashions #2 Collage Sheets.  Included are: 14 Dresses, 9 Hats, 5 Pairs of Boots & 6 Body Parts (for paper dolls)

Laura: I am really enjoying your beautiful house and all that you have put into it. I purchased two house kits so that I might have adjoining abodes for my little lady, Ms. Baggs. I do have a beginners question for you, what brand of glue to you use to put the house together. I haven't ever done a kit like this before. Thanks so much for the inspiration. I'm in love with this idea.

It's been forever since I have posted a comment, but definitely want you to know I have viewed your masterpieces often. Over the years of seeing your work I am never disappointed and always amazed at your talent. This series of rooms are literally breathtaking and I so look forward to seeing the whole house completed. It would be hard for me to pick out just one of your creations and say it was my favorite, but this house is definitely the first on my list. Laura you are amazing and there are truly no words to describe your talent. Warmest regards from a long time admirer of your work. Diane
