Voyages Extraordinaires

After I created the steampunk inspired blog header I decided I also wanted to create a mixed media art piece along the same lines.  The wings on the train are made of vellum.  The image of the boy is from Land of Nod Studios.  I’ve just love him and I’ve used him in other pieces.  I digitally added the glasses.  The hat, wings and gauge are constructed separately.  The clock is made of all kinds of metal and paper bits and pieces.

Hi Laura Sweetie...
Oh my gosh, what a gorgeous creation. You absolutely stun me with your artistic talents. I am always so amazed. I wish I could pick your brain for 5 minutes, just to see how those clogs work inside.
I love the little boy, his glasses are the perfect touch. That little clock on his hat is priceless. And I simply adore that checkered floor in the background. So many beautiful pieces you have incorporated in this work of art. I love it. Thank you so much for sharing with me.

I love, LOVE your banner. How beautiful and peaceful it is. I love all the flying contraptions and the birds, in that they fly as well. So creative.

This is the Miracle Weekend makeover. I am one of the hosting sites. For every comment left, Guideposts magazine will pay a dollar, to the next cancer makeover patient. Please stop by and read the story about 9 year old Charlie, and bless me with a comment. Out goal between the 4 or 5 blogs is 5,000. I know we can do it. I would appreciate it, if you pass the word around to as many friends as possible.

Thank you sweetie for a wonderful post. I love it. Have a glorious weekend. Country hugs from Phoenix, Sherry

Oh my gosh, Laura, this Steampunk ATC is wonderful. I just love your use of mixed pieces. The vellum wings, clock, boy, balloons. There's so much so see on a tiny piece.
