October challenge - Rhedd's Creative Spirit

Hello again everyone,

It's time for our October challenge over at Rhedd's Creative Spirit! As always, anything altered art or mixed media goes (no cards please!)

I'm very fond of my make for this month, and it's going up on the wall right next to another steampunk canvas I did a little while ago!

The picture doesn't show it very well, but the background is a bronze tone (A 13 Arts paint I got in a Craft Box mixed media box) , while the different elements are all highlighted with gold (from my Rustoleum gold leafing pen. I am in love with that thing!).

The penny farthing is a gorgeous piece from Fernli Designs, as are about half of the gears. the other half and the rest of the embellishments are from Craft Box. I am hopelessly in love with the clock stencil in the background (got that from craft Box too), and a little bit of Distress ink really made it pop!

I had so much fun doing this canvas, and just love the way it came out. hubby loves it too, so it's definitely going up in our living room!

I hope you'll check out the gorgeous work done by me fellow teamies, and then come and play with us!

Have a most fantabulous day!



I'd like to enter this canvas in the current challenge at A Vintage Journey.

I'd also like to enter the heavy metal challenge at Simon Says Stamp

Fabulous steampunk canvas - the monochrome colour palette makes it so rich and elegant, and the textures are wonderful. Thanks so much for joining us on A Vintage Journey.
