“Tempus Fugit” – Steampunk Tuesday Surprise Project with Ian

The original project that Ian was going to do on Tuesday had to be delayed due to the late arrival of printer ink and the late delivery of a brand new laser printer!

Instead of the planned project, Ian decided he was going to create a surprise Steampunk assemblage piece from scratch using bits and bobs of “Objets Trouvé” from his workshop. Click below to see what he’s created/invented! It’s a fairly long video at approx 1hr 30mins, so grab a beverage and get comfortable!

Mini Mixed Media Assemblage Frame – Friends

I haven’t created any kind of 3D mixed media project for quite a while and I just fancied getting my hands dirty with a small mixed media assemblage shadowbox frame. The frame box is approx 4.5″ x 4.5″ (12cm x 12cm). I bought this and two other frames quite cheaply at my local craft store last year and they’ve been gathering dust – so time to use them up!

To watch how I created the assemblage frame from start to finish you can click the YouTube link below.

I hope you enjoyed watching how the box frame was created in real time. If you did please remember to give the video a thumbs up, share with your friends and if you haven’t subscribed to my YouTube channel yet, you can do so by clicking the button at the end of the video.

Mini Assemblage Frame – Robot

This is my very first attempt at a mixed media “Assemblage” piece of art. For those who don’t know what “Assemblage” is Wikipedia defines it as

“Assemblage is an artistic form or medium usually created on a defined substrate that consists of three-dimensional elements projecting out of or from the substrate. It is similar to collage, a two-dimensional medium.”

If you’d like to read more on the topic of Assemblage Art there is a very good article which gives a brief history of the artform [HERE]

To watch how I created my mini assemblage frame click the YouTube video link below. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did putting it together.

If you do enjoy the video please give it a thumbs up and subscribe to my YouTube channel for more videos just like this one!
