Here she is...Miss Steampunk! So maybe it's not exactly like the Miss America pageant, but here's my piece for the Spicy Supply Challenge at Gingersnap Creations this week. Keeping with Steampunk month, the challenge involves using gears and cogs - such an integral part of the Steampunk style. This style is so fun and imaginative and I loved working on my dress form doll. I chose a vintage photo for her head (Enchanted Mercantile) and cut down a bird cage die cut for her skirt. Both metal and chipboard gears were added; the chipboard ones were given the Krylon pen, sandpaper, and Distress Stain treatment for an aged metal look; I thought a ticking clock would be a good fit over her heart, and tiny watch parts were added as hair accoutrements. The background is a gear stamp from Stampers Anonymous - always liked that one with its link to Cleveland - reminds me of living near there - and the Steampunk word is from Oxford Impressions.
Here's a closer look of her hair-do!
Hope you'll play around in the Steampunk style and add a project to the Gingersnap Creations blog post HERE. The challenge runs until August 7th - plenty of time for you to join in!
