It is made from a watercolor paper that I washed with paint, and I added an image cut from an old deck of cards (he is a cool Joker, isn't he?). He's got a feather glued to his hat and is topped with a salesman sample, old watch crystal.
A clock hand and some lace was added to the bottom of the tag and there is a ruffle of text under him.
I'm not exactly sure what makes something steampunk or not, but everyonce in a while I make my attempt at it for someone who is into the style. I always think the style looks cool when I see it elsewhere, but I'm not sure if I've grasped the concept for making it myself.
Here is what I found on Wikipedia says, hmmm:
Steampunk design emphasizes a balance between the form and function. Like the Arts and Crafts Movement, this blurs the line between tool and decoration. Various modern utilitarian objects have been modified by enthusiasts into a pseudo-Victorian mechanical "steampunk" style. Example objects include computer keyboards and electric guitars. The goal of such redesigns is to employ appropriate materials (such as polished brass, iron, wood, and leather) with design elements and craftsmanship consistent with the Victorian era, rejecting the aesthetic of industrial design.
My pumpkin adventures have been going on much longer than I ever would have guessed. Those little guys are addictive. I harvested some vines from the garden and left them in the sun to dry. Kitty Boy seems to think they make a nice bed on this table top.
This might be my new fave. It's made from a doll dress.
The blue one is in the Boutique, but the bronze satin one is planned as a gift.
This one is just itty bitty, and you can find it in the shop.
