Smeared & Smudged Forum - November Member Blog Hop

Good Morning! Our challenge this month was to create a project in the "steampunk" fashion, and I'd started making a mixed media doll from Creative PaperClayBest laid plans...found out that yes, paperclay will burn in the oven LOL, or at least scorch. In lieu of the doll I'd planned to post here is a sketchbook that I covered in a "Steampunk" fashion.

I used a piece of Graphic 45's "Steampunk Debutante" line as the background. The main image is from the original Steampunk digi line at Simply Betty Stamps colored with Derwent Inktense pencils. I also used the Geared heart from Smeared Ink colored with markers & Distress Stickles in Old Brass. I added a couple of metal pieces/gears from 7 Gypsies & ribbons to accent.

Since I made a second body for my doll I'll try to finish that one up shortly. Anyway, thanks for looking! The Blog roll is to your right ------>

Am also entering this on the Smudgy Antics Challenge Blog, the challenge is to "alter something".

TOFF Challenge - "Halloween"

This is a card that I made for The Octopode Factory Friday Challenge this week. The theme was Halloween. I used Lily's generous freebie Witches Hat along with the March Hare digi image, both of which were colored using Derwent's Inktense pencils. I made a little trick or treat bag using a paper bag. This was mounted on 2 pieces of DP - simple card but I just love Lily's awesome images. She rocks! Thanks for looking
