Amazingly Strange!

I'm always looking for inspiration for my Steampunk Art,
 sometimes I find it on Google images and sometimes Pintrest. When I saw the photo of this woman I thought how perfect, I don't know anything about her accept that she's great for this piece!:)
This is a 6x6 canvas. Some of the metal gears I used are from Tim Holtz, Seven Gypsy's and some are charms from the Jewelry department at Michael's.

Here are a couple of details!
Thanks for looking!

"The Path"

This piece is a 6x6 mixed media on canvas. The Quote was already on the paper, I just had design around it!

Her Colors

I've had such a wonderful response on a small piece that I sold a while back. Everyone seemed to love this quote, so I decided to use it in a couple more pieces.

Steampunk "Spells"

I was so excited when Graphics 45 brought out a new line of papers, the "Steampunk Spells Collection" combining two of my favorite subjects Halloween and Steampunk.  This piece is 6x6 mixed media on canvas, the metal gears are Tim Holtz, old key holes and keys I found at garage sales and flea markets. The wings are from a necklace I found at a dollar store. I love the hunt for the treasures I use in my art :)

Just finished this piece, on an 8x10 canvas. Peaceful just like the mountains.

Back from our Vacation West !!!!!!

We are Back!!! It was a wonderful vacation! Two weeks in South Dakota and Wyoming. I brought all of my art supplies, but there was so much to see!!! I've never been west of Chicago. The mountains were breath taking and the ride into Yellowstone was a truly humbling experience, no radio, no talking, just realizing how beautiful this country is.
