Travel is in the works...

 This travel folder is part of Leslierahye's Red White and Blue Summer Steampunk Blog Hop.  I hope you like it as it was my very first steampunk project.

Hot air ballooning is the epitome of summer travel and what better to decorate a steampunk summer themed travel folder with?  Bo Bunny and Graphic 45 papers were used to create the folder itself.  A hybrid lightbulb/balloon was frankensteined out of two Altered Artifacts images and added to an amazing Graphic 45 image of a woman-birdcage/hot air balloon.  Die cut gears were distress inked and embossed,  Hot off the press Paper Pizzazz images were distressed and altered, dollarstore bows were distress inked, paper circles were layered, stamped and cut in half, and all used for embellishment.

Crows to hold them...

Unfinished wooden pieces are one of the many things I like to pick up at my local dollar stores. This webster pot was decorated over the course of a week on The Odd Show Live daily show and the finishing touches were added on my Ustream show Dawn's Craft Riot.
