So, I had a small piece of red fabric, with tiny white hearts, and I don't really sew. I was musing over what to do-look up tutes on fabric flowers? Hmm...it's cotton, and will fray. What else?
Then, my eyes lit upon a tiny frame I bought at the thrift store for 50 cents. Perhaps the fabric would make a good background? Then, it all clicked. A small photocopy of a Tesla photo, touch it up a little, glue it on a background, add a few gear looking wash lockers...(Yes, I know, electricity would be more appropriate for Tesla. Don't judge me.) Put it all together, and realized, 'holy cow, did I just make a Tesla pin up?'
(Tesla is from the same era as Edison-but you don't have to know who he is. Just look at those smouldering eyes!)

slightly crooked, alas.
He's now with my other little nerdy goodness, things made by others, and some by me. Resting on the top of a shadowbox I made, another lovely framed piece of art from a swap behind him. I was given the dingbot clank and the atcs, I made the clock robin, and he's next to a lovely bit of found metal, with the word 'imagine' attached. He seems at home there.

Awesome mixed-media inspiration board/shadowbox. Tesla is quite gorgeous.

Why, thank you! I'm getting to the point where I need a real shelf for the goodies people give me and that I make. The top of the shadowbox is getting quite crowded!
My wee poly clay clock robin is wearing goggles, and there's a watch face on top of the thread spool he's perched upon. And that's a real bird's eggshell I found, with lots of sealer.
