July Steampunk Challenge: Steampunk Americana

July Steampunk Challenge topic is:
Steampunk Americana

With Independence Day in July, we decided to combine Steampunk and vintage patriotic; Americana.
This can be interpreted in any way...
just remember to add a Steampunk twist to it!

Let your imagination loose!
I want to see those gears turning!


This was a toughie being that I'm Canadian but I got it figured out OK.

I used *My Favorite* picture of Greg from our Honeymoon Trip to the Canadian National Steampunk Exhibition in Toronto. Greg's in his Firefly~Weird Wild West get-up, we were outside, waiting for the fire-dance performance to start up, late afternoon (Great Light!).

Red Base is Bazzill textured cardstock, dry-brushed with Art Deco White paint.
The 'holey' blue paper is unknown, also dry-brushed with the White.
Stars are all cut out of Graphic 45: Steampunk Debutante paper with a SLICE, in several sizes, then inked with 2 shades of yellow.
White gears are
scraps of Glossy Photo paper punched with the SU! gears punch.
Black Gears are Little Yellow Bicycle Lacey Cardstock, embellished with brass colored Screw Head brads (unknown).
'My' in title is Thickers.
'Love' is Pressed Petals: Monday Metals self-adhesive word strip.
Clock is BoBunny: Timepiece Chipboard trimmed with gold elastic stretch Christmas wrap (waste not, want not).

Picture is on a scrap piece of Tattered Angels Red Glimmer Mist 'spray over' paper.

Red, White, Blue, Stars, Clocks and Gears!

My Love
...Greg at CNSE 2011...
