It's another grey day here and just starting to rain.
I have a page for AJJ 'Light and Darkness theme' - being hosted this month by the lovely Valerie. Sorry about awful photo ...Grrrr!..I can never yet a page to lay flat and play nice when I want to take a photo, and also finding it hard to get decent photo because of the gloomy grey wintry days.
And as promised, below are a couple more Steampunk decorations..
The snowflake was thick white felt before I painted it with
various acrylic paints to get the faux metal effect.
The nuts and bolts, and cog in centre are made from craft foam.
I turned the tree lights off when taking these photos, but for this years tree we
changed the lights from white bulbs with black wire to coloured lights and clear wire
as I didn't like the black lead showing so much. Not sure if I should have stayed with
white lights, but the coloured ones are certainly more warmer and cheerful.
I knew the pack of mini bottles I had bought would come in handy one day -
not exactly steampunk but fits nicely on my quirky tree. Somewhere on the tree
there's a blue and a green version as well as the red one below. They are filled with
glitter and either little stars or hearts and topped with a big jewel.
Thanks for stopping by today.
Wishing you a lovely weekend.
