Mechanical Dreams

Designing for CraftBox using the Steampunk City skyboat cover page preview, lots of lace and an assortment of cogs.

I identified a couple of Lindys starburst sprays that matched the blue and amber colour scheme of the papers, and used them to colour the canvas board background, adding a music score stamp, and later some splatters of white paint.

A tiny portion of lace shows on the mini page preview, inspiring me to use real lace to frame the image.

I have used glass cabochons; left clear, translucent, with steampunk gauges and over-painted in a variety of sizes around the project.

Snipart steampunk borders and pipes add some straight lines to the overall design taking hints from the feature image.  The project is finished with druzi stones and microbeads.
