A Very Merry Steampunk Holiday

Hello Lovelies,  today is super special for me... My friend and fellow APDT member Leslie Rahye has decided to have a Holiday Blog hop... What's special about this one, well it's steampunk of course.  We could do anything we liked with a steampunk theme so I decided to do a Snowman/Top Hat!!  Now my vision for this is to make a paper mache snowman to wear this hat!  No it's not done yet because I just thought of it so it's still a work in progress(the snowman) but the Hat is done.  I found these paper mache top hats at Michaels in October and snatched up a couple before they were gone.  Not really having any clue as to what I wanted to do with them then I heard about this blog hop and knew what one was going to be!!! I hope to be done with my snowman before christmas but if you have ever made your own paper mache items(big ones at that) then you know it takes a while to get them done. 

 
That key paper is tissue paper I got from Michael's it comes in a 5 pack... it's by recollections.  The band is some printed canvas also by recollections from Michales. 

 
The tiny gears are from Tim Holtz. The clear beads are dew drops.  They circle the band.

 
There is a double layers poinsetta with some greenery from the craft store as well.
 
 
Be sure to visit everyone and leave some love!!!  Cause everyone needs some love!!!
