I had been cutting chipboard and didn't like what I was working on so I put it aside....Checked out Facebook...cut more chipboard for a different project... hated that....Checked email...then over to Facebook again. One of those kind of days...
Then, on Facebook I saw a fellow Inspiration Team pal, Shelly Hickox's post on her AMAZING Steampunk'n!!!!! What a total treat for the eyes! Please go and check it out on her blog, here. See didn't I tell you it was AWESOME! I love this woman's art! I mean she makes the MOST incredible things! I'm a big fan and always will be! I always look forward to whatever she comes out with next!
Shelly was just the inspiration I needed. I loved Shelly's Steampunk'n so much that I got on my happy face, got off my tail feathers and got crackin! THANK YOU SHELLY! You are one AMAZING artist. Did I already say that? If I did, it's because it needed to be said more than once!
After reading her blog post, I thought to myself...I may have everything to do it. I had seen Tim Holtz do the riveted patchwork pumpkin last fall and I loved it then and bought all the things to do the project, but never got around to doing it! I hate when that happens! But at least I had the supplies.
I love me some steampunk and I so miss playing with all the Idea-ology pieces from Tim, so off I went, smile on face, and Shelly's Steampunk'n for inspiration in my heart and mind.
So...Here's my Jacked Up Jack-o'-Lantern....
Thanks Shelly Hickox! You Rock My World!
Thanks for looking!
