I chose to work with Amber Postal Punk, one of the steampunk images this time. I really like the look of steampunk, but it's another of those styles that I have very little resources for and one that does not come naturally to me. So anyway...I made it my mission to make my very first mixed media steampunk canvas this month and watched a few YouTube videos on the how tos. I bought a cheap canvas from Poundland and it was actually really good value - worked perfectly fine to me, so will definitely be going back to get me some more!
I came up with this. It did take me hours and I hated being so messy and dirty (I'm too OCD about being clean for all the ink going everywhere!). Even tried wearing Latex gloves, but they just felt weird whilst crafting! But.....I absolutely love this and had loads of fun making it! Might not be proper steampunk, but it's my version and I love it! Looks so much more shimmery in real life too, but the camera wouldn't pick that up.
