Monster Truck

 You may have seen on the weekends Inspiration Post, the Monster Truck Album.  I have a couple of special little friend who just ADORE Monster trucks, so I asked Suzanne over at WOW, if she could create an album for me in MDF to alter.  This is what I came up with.

Today I thought I might share a little on how I completed this. Firstly I covered the wheel centre with clear acetate (transparency sheet), then used texture paste to build up the tyre, and while that was still wet, I sprinkled black glitter over it, and allowed to dry.

The acetate became the cover of a shaker box inside the wheels,

I painted the fronts of the album pages with silver acrylic, and the backs I attached patterned papers, and decorated the wheel centres.

Next, I painted the Screw Head Set (C978) and Small Tool Set (C1086) with the silver acrylic, added some mod podge to the tool handles and dipped them into different bright glitters, to give defined handles....just like 'dad's tools'. 

The screw heads got some heat treated embossing with a African Gold embossing powder.

 These tool sets and screw heads are great embellishments to any project.  

Don't forget to keep coming back regularly to check for inspiration.
