CC2C week 22: Steampunk faux altered book


This week at Linda's Compendium of Curiosities Vol 2 Challenge (sponsored this time by the Funkie Junkie's Boutique) the featured technique is riveted patchwork from page 57 of Tim's book.  After taking a class with Tim back in May where I learned this technique, I came home and created one of my faux altered books and used the riveted patchwork technique as the book covers and have been saving this project until this particular challenge came up. I added a combination of metal and altered chipboard gear diecuts on the outside and when you open the door.......


......you can see that the entire piece is a deep niche for my dimensional collage of an inventor complete with blueprint paper I made using stamped images white embossed and then colored with chipped sapphire Distress Stain.

Here he is complete with gears turning in his head and a light bulb - you know he had to have those to illustrate all his creative ideas, right?
