Challenge #38 - Anything Goes

Hello and Welcome to my slice of paradise!

I'd like to take this time to send a hearty "thank you" to my followers; and hugs of gratitude to my faithful visitors.  It's not easy keeping up with this hobby that I love so much; but who doesn't enjoy a good challenge?!  LOL. 

613 Avenue Create is hosting an "Anything Goes" challenge this week; and our featured images have benn graciously provided by Rick St. Dennis and Sassy Studio Designs.  The twist to this challenge is for you to create your own color challenge - using 1 color from each color in the chart provided.  If you choose to accept the challenge, be sure to post your finished projects over at the Avenue!

For those who know me, you know I had to find a way to incorporate purple into my project!  LOL.  With that said, here's my project:

Steampunk Newbie!

Greetings Fellow Crafters and Curious Followers,

I have been struggling with keeping up with the craft that I love so much, given my life has now been consumed by football, cheering, football, and more football!  LOL.  Nonetheless, in an effort to keep my coloring skills (at least) thriving, I've joined the Sassy Studios group at PaperCraftingPlanet.  Each month we have the opportunity to participate in Progressive Challenges.  The most recent challenge was to complete a project using SSD's "Steampunk Amelia".  Now, I know nothing about "steampunk", so this was all foreign to me.

Steampunk is a sub-genre of science fiction that typically features steam-powered machinery,[1] especially in a setting inspired by industrialized Western civilization during the 19th century.  Steampunk also refers to any of the artistic styles, clothing fashions, or subcultures, that have developed from the aesthetics of steampunk fiction, Victorian-era fiction, art nouveau design, and films from the mid-20th century.

Well, a third of the way through this project, I realized I didn't have any machinery embellies (TH has some good ones); so I had to improvise.  Here's the final project:

Thanks for stopping by.  Be sure to leave me some blog love, if you can.
