Today I am sharing the story of The Gentleman and what awaits behind a raised curtain. This month at SanDee&Amelie's Steampunk Challenge is all about "Raise the Curtain". Let's begin!
The Gentleman comes home and lays his goggles and pocket watch on the table, he looks up at his beloved's portrait knowing he will always keep her in his heart. He then turns with a light step and can not contain the glee he feels as he opens the curtains to his...........
Lab! He knows he is so close to figuring out how he will see his beloved again. His beloved is waiting for him to come home after he finishes inventing his latest creation, the "BopperDopper Dimension De-Tangler". His beloved actually lives between dimensions and they have only met through her dreams. But Alas! He is done and finally they can be together in real time! To be continued......
I started with an Altoid Tin. I cut some papers to fit the front, back, and insides.
The big copper piece in the back lower left corner is from a watch I had that stopped working, so I took its guts out. And of course there has to be a periodic table, every scientist needs one right?
Are you ready to try out this challenge? I bet your head is spinning with possibilities for Steampunk curtains of some sort. What will you come up with? Carpe Diem! Happy crafting! ~Niki
