i love the look of steampunk. i tried to capture it here on a blank wood birdhouse acquired at a garage sale. first thing i did was seal it with some clear gesso, and then i painted it a lovely blue... (go figure, right?). from there i started gluing on used car parts and various doodads from garage sales and a junk drawer. a few rubons from my scrapbooking days and some spray ink ... and VOILA.
i wanted to put this in the shop for sale, but it is extremely heavy - shipping would be outrageous. since i'm probably doing an art show in october, i think i will add it to my stash of items to sell there.
