My latest obsession is steampunk. I've been reading about it, culling for clipart, and creating it in Photoshop. I made some tags so far. I am making an envelope altered mini-book about steampunk. I love the whole look of steampunk. I first heard of it in the late 80's and immediately loved it. The past few years it seems that the Goth movement has embraced steampunk in a big way. My take is a little of both.
I am also using paper from my current favorite scrap paper, Graphic 45.
They are amazing papers!
I created this woman in photoshop using gears and an ornament background.
Once I printed her I grunged her up and layered her onto more card stock. The wings are die cut (thank you Sue Milo!) out of textured paper that I then added gilders paste to the wings to make them metal. The little bird is polymer clay with gilders paste.
These 3 tags: Except for the flourishes,
the body and the backgrounds were made in photo shop.
