Steampunk Mid Week Motivation

Hi everyone it's Suzi here with mid week motivation.  I used Graphic 45 steampunk papers, Dezinaworld digis (butterflies)  and a cupcake holder. I hope you join us with this fun theme. I've given you  some Steampunk definitions, there are loads, I tried to find the ones suitable for crafters! but my time was limited :)

To help you understand the world of Steampunk  think all things Victorian, steam power, cogs and wheels, whimsy, romance, science fiction, lace, leather  etc etc. use lots of imagination and have fun!

 This is a fabulous Sreampunk digi  image from June of Dezinworld fame, printed onto glossy photo paper and cut out.


  The white butterlies have been cut from a cupcake holder. I cut off the bottom of the "skirt" from the main image off the gorgeous Steampunk lady, then repositioned it so that it peeped from under the flowery frame

A quote
“To me, it’s essentially the intersection of technology and romance.” – Jake von Slatt

 Steampunk is an aesthic and a subculture based around the idea of alternative history and fantasy versions of the past. It is Victorian-inspired and influenced, with a heavy emphasis on clockwork gadgets, steam power, airships and other steam-age technologies, all with a science fiction twist. Steampunk costumes and accessories tend to include Victorian-style items such as top hats or corsets, along with lots of straps, goggles, leather and brass -- and the ever-present clockwork.

Enjoy the rest of your week.
