A 1898 Antique Sewing Machine Frame made into altered art!

Today I am entering this project into Sandee & amelie’s Steampunk Challenge .  I like how the Steampunk assemblage really works well with the antique wood frame.  The frame is from a 1898 New Williams sewing machine.  I love antique sewing machines – they look like Steampunk artwork in and of themselves.  Tissue with vintage styled text on it was decoupaged to an art board to create the background. As for the dress form image, it is card stock from the Timekeeper set from Marion Smith Designs; which is distressed and attached to black card stock to bring out the image. The gears, wheels, and butterfly are from Finnibair’s new mechanical release (love these so much!!!).  A few more metal pieces to decorate the corners (they actually hide the holes where the sewing machine was fastened), and a vintage style key finishs off the piece.
