Steampunk debutante

I make no apologies for the Steampunk fest that is going on on here at the moment cos I LOVE IT!! It is so right up my street with its use of found bits and pieces!!
As you can see this piece features another of the folded book page pieces I am so into using at the min.along with the GRAPHIC 45 STEAMPUNK DEBUTANTE papers,  I sprayed this one with ink and like the way it ran between the pages.
A bit of a labour of love was adding the little washers to the pages! To make them hang the right way I had to use 2 jump rings for each one!
Sat in the folded pages are two old radio valves with the words STEAM and PUNK added on strips of metal along with a couple of paper roses.
Even the bird has a few watch parts added! The bird is a STAMPOTIQUE image.
An old watch added as a necklace.
Graphic 45 papers and Stampotique stamps are available from  
THE STAMP ATTIC
