Darkness and light for AJJ and last of the Steampunk ornaments.

I'm loving Valeries fab theme this month at AJJ 'Light and Darkness'
 and really enjoyed making this page. I combined a piece of my artwork with some digital papers and digital elements from kits: The artists memories by G&T designs and 'A scrap of art' by Lynne Anzelc and added some digital effects. Finished off with some quotes. 

And I think these are probably the last of the new Steampunk ornaments I've been making. Sorry photos not good but the winter light has made it awkward to get a decent image ..

The tree is a sort of iridescent and white but when the lights are on make it look various colours.
 Thanks so much for stopping by.
Hope you have a wonderful weekend.
