Steampunk On My Mind
Sometimes things just all line up and everything works out. 2012 is off to a great start.
My friend Leah set Steampunk as the theme for the next challenge for our GOE group. When she sent the email, she included a link for a very funny Youtube video called Just Glue Some Gears On It (And Call It Steampunk).
While I was doing sketches and gathering ideas and materials to get started on this challenge, Lisa posted the theme "Metal" for this month's ATC swap. Well, Steampunk and metal just seem a perfect match so I was off to the studio to play and these are the ATCs I made today.
Before adding some actual metal bits to the ATC, I started by using TAP to transfer images of gears on the background as well as the photo of the guy from the youtube video onto the copper sheeting.
And for my GOE friends, no this in not my challenge piece~just a warm up.
