Welcome back to another exciting Macabre Monday challenge!!
The new challenge theme is
StEaMpUnK JuNk
That's right, it's time to gather up those bits and bobs, odd and ends, and
make something Steampunk-y with them!
That's why there are metallic paints, right?
The idea is to reuse, or up-cycle something(s) in your junk drawer,
or something destined for the trash bin.
Make it into a Steampunk inspired project.
Got it?
I have made a fascinator....
some mesh ( you know those things you scrub yourself with in the bath tub?)
feathers, beads, dragonfly, watch parts etc.
 The dragonfly and watchinnard thingy are those metal casting things,
 I added AB stones from an old brooch, TH cogs,
 and tiny watch parts to make it look more authentic.
 A few feathers and some beads and its ready to go.
One of my girls agreed to model it for me so you can roughly see the size.
I hope you'll join us this fortnight in our STEAMPUNK JUNK challenge,
we accept any kind of artwork/craft.
Thanks for stopping by BDx
