Art Emboss Steampunk Mixed Media Collage

This 12 x 12 gallery wrapped canvas is a whimsical nod to steampunk using a bunch of junk jewelry.  It was really easy to make using copper ArtEmboss metal foil.  I sure made a good dent into using up my new roll of copper foil with this project!

The two ArtEmboss copper leaves were accented with old gold necklace chain and held together with a embossed silver necklace finding.

I cut out a 1″ band of ArtEmboss copper foil and decorated it with junk jewelry pieces so you “see” something different everytime you look at it!

I printed out a clip art bird head and attached it to the piece of bird shaped ArtEmboss and had so much fun finding some good pieces to represent the bird wings and tail feathers.

All that was left was to use Ranger Stickles for my “signature” swirls at some of the edges!  My section at Sunrose Gallery sits next to a beautiful display of steampunk refrigerator magnets made by a local artist, it will be fun to see this piece juxtaposed next to the magnet display!
