I'm a Steamy Punk...

Last year a talented scrapbook artist by the name of Anne-Marie Cox saw a photo of me on my facebook page and asked if she could use it to create a steampunk page...the page got put on the backburner for AM but since then I had often thought about creating my own...and here it is.

I used an eclectic mix of buttons, cogs, nails, chipboard, charms and watch pieces

the framing cog pieces are from Words Or Whatever

the base I used is corrugated cardboard packing, additional things used are Green Tara lace, German Scrap, waterslide/rub on, impasto, gilding wax, acrylic paint, chain, stamped copper...oh and did I mention that the page is actually bolted onto thick mattboard for added strength due to the weight
