I don't know if you've been following along or not but this month on the Altered Pages Blog we've paired up with Artists on the Block and Eileen Hull to share a wide variety of Altered Trading Blocks.
I wanted to make a Steampunk block and I sort of got carried away...
I ended up with a tower of 3 blocks instead of just one.
Check it out....
And here are each of the blocks....
The top ~ Steampunk Machines - Enjoy the Ride
The Center block hosts The Inventor and Dreamer along with a few of Frankenstein's Experiments.
This little caged winged clock is hidden between the center and bottom block...
And for the bottom block I took apart a glassine envelope that I inked up with a bit of Staz-On ink the glued onto the block. It's topped with a bit of guilders paste over the bumps.
And here are the images from the bottom block... The Queen of Steam and The Commander.
I had such fun thinking of fun putting this all together.
Once I got the idea it was like an obsession to finish it!
Do you ever get ideas like that?
It's so exciting when your vision comes to life and even more so when it turns out better than you envisioned it.

Hope you enjoy and have a Steamy Day!!
