Steampunk Canvas *

Well it is that time again for a new challenge over at ''The Mirror Crack'd'' and the theme this month is to put together a Canvas.  I decided to go Steampunk - one of my fave styles due to dark colours lol.

Here is the list of the items used

Canvas
gesso
wooden cogs
chipboard dressform
charms
lots of rusty wire coiled by me
glass bottle with watch parts in it
inka gold
wooden bird, bodyform, numbers, clock hands
lots of chain round the cogs
screw
clock mask and modelling paste 
paint and sprays
lace, diamante effect trim for texture
and I ripped the arms from a barbie doll 
For the wings I used wire, mod podge and inks
and a lot of patience lol

Well now for the pics and sorry for overload





Why not head on over to The Mirror Crack'd and join in with the fun

Hugz always

    2. Well....yes... I assumed that that was what had happened, Elaine! Blame it on the heat, loads of mojo and your distractive craftroom...giggle...I do stuff like that too at times. We're way too busy and when inspiration comes by we have to run and capture the moment, right? ;)

      Hugs,
