The September Challenge at Gecko Galz is "Steampunk Autumn"; a combination of two of my favorite themes.
I have created a collage page, an ATC coin, and an ATC card for this challenge.
The first shown is the collage page. The background is one of the Shabby Ledger papers. I have zig zagged stitched around the edges with black thread. The collage elements include items from:
Owling for You collage sheet, Bugs collage sheet, Butterfly Dreams collage sheet, Mad About Men collage sheet, Library Cards collage sheet, Sentimental Journey collage sheet, The Mechanical Life collage sheet, and Charming Words collage sheet, and the Time Flies ATC set. Once all my items were placed as I wanted them, I straight stitched around the entire outside border.
The second item is my ATC coin. For this I have used an element from the Industrial Age digital stamp set and the Owling for You collage set. I added one of my own vintage metal gears to enhance the steampunk element.
And the final piece is my ATC card. For this one I used Steam Punk ATC set as my background, some text from the Sentimental Journey collage set, and the owls from the Owling for You collage set. Again, I added a vintage brass tag from my own collection.
