Steampunk book page

Morning crafty bloggers.....hope you're all well!
Ooh, it's a bit breezy & wet today......and I was gonna spend the morning in 
the garden too.....oh well, might just have to shut myself in my craft room
instead........after the jobs are done of course (wink wink) lol!
Today I have a book page to share.....5x5 & the theme was Steampunk.
I started with a base of Dylusion spray inks, they are soooo nice...I used a
bottle top to stamp random circles with mica paints. I brushed the same paint
over a Tim Holtz weathered clock die cut, Cheery Lynn die cut cogs &
the die cut wings. The mannequin is from Craftwork cards & covered with a
layer of crackle paint, I then added die cut wings, a cheesecloth
skirt & a chain belt....added a gem to the centre of the cogs & that's it!
The left side was left plain as that's where the holes are to be punched to
hold the book together. Rightio, that's my lot for to go grab a
cuppa & have a wander around Blogland...thanks for calling....see you soon!
