Haaa, I feel better. I had this book nagging me to be made. I love the ‘steampunk’ theme, but I’m never too sure how to approach it.
It seems that lace and steampunk would go well.
I am grateful to all the people who allowed me to use their ideas or their artwork images in my book:
-Ingrid Dijkers for the fabulous gear page, and the beads page
-I took the floating girl page from Lynne Perella’s book, Artists Journal
- I used two small domino images from Artchix, and bigger images from Deviant
-I used, at last, my Tim Holtz masks. )
- I used my own cabinet cards, as well as lace paper, antique jewelry, vintage lace and ribbons,
This right page was an accident. I used a tissu paper that completely disappeared under the gel medium, so I ended up covering it with gold paint from Kroma in Vancouver, and it looks rather amazing now.
There are more photos of it on my Etsy site.
Now back to painting, but I really want to make another book on Paris, then one on Provence, then…
So much fun, so little time!
