Morning crafty bloggers......hope you're all well!
Just popping in to share a tag........a friend asked me the other day what
 Steampunk was.......I tried to explain (but not very well) & so she asked
 me........'if I was Steampunk what would I be?' Now I do love a here it is..........a Steampunk version of little old me!
Methinks we both have a lot to learn lol although I did have a great
time creating my tag & she's still no wiser..........Google here we come!
I started by giving my tag a coat of Gesso, once dry I added some 
builders tape for texture, when dry I sprayed with my fav Dylusion inks.
The dress form was painted with Gesso, given a layer of Crackle
paint then rubbed over with an ink pad. The skirt is a piece of
cheesecloth sprayed with Dylusions & the belt is just a snippet of chain.
Cogs & wings are die cuts brushed randomly with some bronze mica
 paint & I added a few gems to the centre of the cogs.
I loved making this, I'm really loving trying my hand at the different
styles of crafting........I'm especially loving mixed media!
Thanks for calling........see you soon!
