leslierahye's Very Fall Steampunk Blog Hop!

Happy Fall Y'all!! Welcome to my Very Fall Steampunk Blog Hop! I am celebrating the change of seasons from summer to fall with my favorite steampunk friends!! I hope you enjoy our projects!!
I LOVE fall--the weather, school activities, nature, colors. It's just amazing how beautiful the world becomes with all the colors and the crisp nip of the morning air. This year it was as if the world just knew it was time to change seasons...the air this morning was nice and crisp and we've been spending a few days with the doors and windows open!


Today I created this whimsical steampunk necklace...the focus piece is all diecut gears and leaves on the ends--book paper over chipboard and then drybrushed with Hooker Green and Copper paint.
The gears are layered on Buttons Galore and More Buttons and some wired washers and a wee bit of acrylic that provided a base on which to build. 




Thank you for stopping by!! I hope you enjoy my projects that help me with the changing of the season! Be sure to check out the rest of the creations from my amazingly crafty friends!! Those with asterisks have a give away! You can find details to my give away at the end of the hop! :)

  10. OMG, this is beautiful. I love how you added the leaves on either end to taper it all of so nicely. I may have to borrow this idea sometime, when I make some jewelry. LOL Thanks for sharing.

  14. My favorite item/project is the necklace, followed closely by the wreath. Maybe making several of these wonderful projects is a need! At least for us!
