Happy Holidays everyone and welcome to my very first Steampunk Project EVER! Leslierahye has been trying to get me on the Steampunk Bandwagon for close to a year now, I honestly didn’t get it (I still only sort of get Steampunk but I am digging the gear thingies). I found some washers and gears in the garage which made me think hey let me try that whole Steampunk thing.
My Tree was quite simple I used 9 washers and various gear thingies (I am sure that is the technical term) to form a tree. I laid it all out to see if it would work, instead of pulling out the glue and gluing piece by piece, I disassembled it. With the Metal Glue in my hand I had to quickly figure out what I was doing. Surprisingly it went well and I was able to get it back together and make it look like a tree. I took some thin copper wire and wrapped the tree (I thought it needed a little more intrest). I really liked how it looked but the Princess thought I needed some color, so I pulled out some metallic red Dew Drops. I really love how this piece turned out and not too shabby for my first Steampunk Piece if I do say so myself.
I also create some special Steampunk Digital Paper for the Blog Hop:
