Let's Make A Steampunk Masterboard JJ4E Weekly Challenge

Nigezza Creates aka Gez, Independent Stampin' Up® Demonstrator 


Welcome to my blog, thank you for joining me today 😀

I am bringing you the tutorial for the Masterboard I made for the weekly challenge in the Facebook group Junk Journal For everyone. #JJ4Eweeklychallenge This is something new in the group and we are very excited about it. Myself and the lovely Jane Austin are setting these challenges each week. We are doing a different theme each month and the challenges each week will relate to that theme. For this first month we have decided to set the theme as Steampunk/Halloween. I have not incorporated the Halloween aspect into this masterboard just the steampunk. 

I have always wanted to make a steampunk themed journal, this is the very first thing I have made so I decided to start with a masterboard. I am using this as a sort of moodboard for the projects to inspire me and get my creativity flowing, I hope by doing this challenge you will also get the steampunk vibe.  So if like me you have always wanted to have a go at steampunk or you love halloween then pop over to the group and join in 😀

Measurements and Materials

  • I started with some neutral digitals and created a background 
  • I have used images that are in the public domain so I can scan and reuse
  • I then added some steampunk images with are also in the public domain and again I scanned that for future use
  • The next step was adding stamping
  • Once stamping was added I could not scan anymore due to copyright, but I can always print off my previous scanned masterboard and stamp on them
  • Finally I added die cut cogs, buttons and lace
  • I used solvent inks and alcohol pens and a sanding block to give the cogs a look of being covered in oil and old
  • I wanted the buttons to resemble old brass uniform buttons 
  • All the steps are shown in my video so do take a look


Now watch the video tutorial to see how this was made :-)
