Added clock charm ,glitter and put her wonderful flat back pearls on my glittered Tim Holtz gears that makes up the basket . Put metal gears with flat back pearls all around. Added a coffee tin butterfly and hooked it to the Balloon with these neat little pin hooks from Shabby scraps ,five to a side . Used the Black frame to house Tesla the electric man ,added glitter to and another flat back pearl that I painted with Tattered Angels glimmer Glaze .....Oh I so love the grungy world ! And last but not least added a ole time key to stabilize the balloon. This is my Christmas ornament dedicated to Tesla ...the real electric man .

This is my STEAMPUNK Birdhouse ! My grandchild found this in the Micheals $1.00 bin and I took it home . My brother ended up in the hospital and I started punching out gears ...then noticed Tanya wanted moving things :) The Bird and butterfly are my own drawings. Gotta wait in the school car line and this is what I came up with . Put gray and white paper on the bird house ,ran walnut ink from Tin Holtz all over it and wiped it off with a paper towel. Painted the gears in metallic red blew the glitter on them . Wrapped copper wire around a pencil and put it on my steam bird and butterfly .And last but not least found some typewriter key stickers and stuck home on the side ...for isnt it what it is all about a home !
