A Steampunk Make with Rick St. Dennis' Image
I attempted steampunk!! Way harder than I had imagined! The image I used is one of Rick St. Dennis' found here. I am practicing and watching his videos using Prismacolor colored pencils. I am loving them and his techniques but finding it hard to perfect! But the fun is in the playing and coloring I think! This make took on it's own life as I started with a vague idea and I probably went too far with it. Stopping just wasn't an option as I found the elements to use. A major source is Hollie's kit "Ode to a Muse" available at Miscief Circus found HERE. Edited in Photoshop and printed out and adhered with silicone for dimension. The rest is papers from my stash, and bits and bobs saved for ages to be used on that just right project. I made the rose and small purple flower out of paper from stash. Some word stickers from Tim Holtz and lots of Glossy Accents!
Proof that you just go for it! Don't be scared! It may not be the best but it is mine and I am smiling!!
