Steampunk Valentine Wall Art
with Carol Murphy

Saturday, February 11, 2012 • 2:30 PM - 5:00 PM

See this and other projects by Carol Murphy featured in Graphic 45's blog article Nostalgic Appeal: The Beautiful G45 Art of Carol Murphy.

Combine metal findings, wire, beads, keys, charms, gorgeous Graphic 45 papers and more to create this one of a kind wall art piece. The deep teal green and copper color, meshed with mixed metals gives this piece a true vintage feel. What a nice way to decorate that little forgotten space, a hallway or an entry, maybe an enclosed porch or patio.

This is one of a few pieces that Carol will have featured on the Graphic 45 Featured Artist Spot appearing in the Graphic 45 website blog article on January 26.

Carol will provide the pre-cut hearts and papers, lots of mixed metal pieces, pre-cut chipboard gears, word sticks, word tokens, and keys. The sun/moon charms at the bottom of the piece are not included.

Please bring: UHU gluestick, fast grab white glue or your favorite glue for attaching the metal pieces. Something like E6000 is not necessary for this project. Any extra charms or gears you would like to use and jewelry pliers if you have them.
