A little Steampunk…

I must admit, steampunk is quite a stretch for me. When assigned projects for the Scrap N Art Steampunk Issue, I knew that I would be stretching myself further than I have had to in the past.  Although Steampunk is still not my forte, I did enjoy coming up with some ‘out of the box’ projects.

This is my little Steampunk Angel (the product I used was Graphic 45, Steampunk Debutante).

And here is my mended broken heart (the product I used was BoBunny, Timepiece):

After all was said and done, I was in charge of writing an article for the Steampunk Issue called, “Let’s Explore Steampunk”.

As you well know, writing is not my thing. I’m just SO bad at it.

Luckily, Scrap N Art has a wonderful editor.

This is the quote that I found most helpful in understanding what Steampunk is:

“Imagine a world where electricity never became viable. Where Tesla never experimented and
Einstein stayed a patent clerk. Take Victorian sensibility, with mad-scientist speculation and
inject a bit of sci-fi . A world powered by steam and gears where flight is through the majestic
zeppelin and brass is more populace than steel. “– Min [Tribe Forum]

I’m in Provo this weekend visiting my grandmother. We were planning on attending the Tulip Festival at Thanksgiving Point but this morning we awoke to snow!

Snow? Spring? Maybe we’ll go see a movie…

Thanks for stopping by today, I hope that you have a beautiful weekend!

xoxo, Christie
