This happened to be one of those lovely times where you sit down to play with ink and paint and the creation just grows without any plans - other than following the challenge guidelines and wanting to use one of the Found Relatives portrait cards for the first time, I really had no idea where to go with this.
Suddenly I was creating a really cool background of gears and other mechanical details and then a whole Time Traveller theme began to look like a good idea....
I LOVE it when creating is like this!


Hi everyone I am super excited to be here with my first project for the blog. I love cogs so this challenge is brilliant for me. I used a brayered background that I had and  then as always it just took off on its own and this was how it ended up.

I love metallic's be it paint wax's etc, rust fascinates me the colours can be stunning, clocks most of my art will have a clock or compass on it. 

I hope this plaque inspires your entries to the challenge & that
you all like my first project please let me know what you think.
Details on my blog.

What would steampunk be without gears and cogs? A truly inspiring theme!
Therefore the steampunk theme of course had to find its way into my favourite art journal book.

Hello and welcome! This is my first Design Team piece and I am very excited to share it with you all. To me, Steampunk has a sultry side and I try to incorporate color into my Steampunk works when I can. There are many techniques and layers to this piece so, if you would like to "see" the process check out my blog. Carpe Diem!

oh it was so much fun creating this Tag. Isn´t Steampunk just the best technique ever :-)
find more details if you like on my Blog - send you love SanDee 

Actually all I had to do to create this project was really "gear up" a paper scrap. The ghostly image of the top hatted gentleman is a left over from cleaning a stencil (thus wiping the residue of black paint from the stencil onto the sheet of paper underneath) and I am sure I never would have achieved that wonderfully smudged look if I had been aiming for it! Happy accidents - I just love 'em!


Oh my! Looking at this fab bundle of steampunk art from teams A and B really (and always) makes me so proud to be part of this! "My" fab team is making me so proud and happy every time! And when I look at the fab art our players enter to the challenges I feel the same! "My" fab players making me sooo proud too! lol
 Let me send a big MWAH! to you all! 

We would love to see your geared up creations being shared with us soon!
