For the ATB swap I noticed my partner liked steampunk so after some research I created this.

(Sorry about the picture quality)


She wanted one that hung on the wall so I attached some metallic ribbon Smiley


I used pages from the book Titus Alone (which I found out kind of helped to start the steampunk movement), and aged them with coffee so i could collage them for the background.

I also used metal gears and beads to embellish the sides and bottom.






Thanks for looking Smiley

Nicely done!  I especially like the color achieved with the coffee on the book pages.

They sure are! Smiley I realized that I like to use the coffee from Kcups because it is finer than what I can find in a can. Shhh dont tell my fiance that I use his fancy coffee for crafts haha
