What began as a literary genre of science fiction and fantasy that incorporated the techno and social aspects of the 1900's has now evolved into so much more. Through the eyes and hands of artists all over the world "Steampunk" has been taken to a whole new level. I am constantly amazed by the varying combinations of artistry and components from metal fixtures and gadgets to the wondrous thing-a- ma-bobs and Victorian industrial style!! It's flavor is unending and constantly delicious!!
With a love for creating the odd, and collecting the unwanted tainted pieces of what some may call "Junk" I have formed a passion and true love for steampunk . It is not just the literary genre involving steam powered technology yet a beautiful art form using brass, copper and glass, polished wood, hammering, engraving, and oh the details for the sake of details with a Victorian Industrial twist. An art form that shows itself through ones own unique personality and artistic interpretation. While some see my collection of junk ( old gears, washers, chains etc.) in the drawers of my atelier, as an artist I see so much more. So in honor of Steampunk and all Steampunk lovers everywhere I bring you today a piece I created using some of my old so called "junk" and some collage images from www.AlteredPages.com
Hmmm, She doesn't have a name yet but I will get back to that in a moment. Right now I want to share with you the name of the collage sheet I used to create this one of a kind Steampunk lavalliere which can be found at www.AlteredPages.com. The collage sheet is called "Exotic Beauties" and is a marvelous set of images of exotic women perfect for that steampunk piece or your upcoming Halloween art! AP has some amazing collage sheets and I bet you will be able to find just the right images for your next project be it SteamPunk, Halloween or something else.!!
Now for the rest of the story!!
