Steampunk Altered Window

Happy New Year (although somewhat belated),

I hope that everyone is having a great start to the New Year. It’s that busy time when there is lots of planning for the year to come; and a bit challenging to get the creative juices going after all that turkey.

After seeing my Steampunk Altered Window Blog, a lovely admirer asked me to make an altered window for them as a Christmas gift (what a nice compliment). I was thrilled to find that Steampunk was also their style. So, I was up for the challenge and found the time between all the hustle and bustle of the holiday season to create one.  I hope they are enjoying this piece….

So…. to start my year off and to get the creative juices started for the year, I did yet another Steampunk Altered Window similar to the one I made a few months back.  The vintage window pane has a lovely patina with a hint of green paint showing through . This is really highlighted with the green steampunk paper (Graphic 45). I love transforming a salvaged window and taking it to the next level, making it a new piece of art. And of course it has to have gears and hinges!  Hope this one finds a home soon…

This was a great kick start to the year – can’t wait to share some more soon!
