So, I'm pretty behind the times on certain terms used in the artsy/craftsy world. "Steampunk" is everywhere and has been for awhile. I know it when I see it, but couldn't really describe it. I know I love it.
So, I looked it up on Wikipedia (of course) and there are some great descriptions and references including: "Works of steampunk often feature anachronistic technology or futuristic innovations as Victorians may have envisioned them; in other words, based on a Victorian perspective on fashion, culture, architectural style, art, etc"
So, when Graphics 45 came out with a paper line called Steampunk Debutante, I knew I had to check it out. I can't get enough of it!
I love the colors on these images. Reminds me of bronze and copper with that green patina of age.
I'm especially attached to the circular design, but I put her in the store anyway. I know she'll go to a good home and whoever receives her will be thrilled.
Take care of yourselves, and don't forget to daydream a little today.
