Fanny is a paper doll created for the Art For The Creative Mind Yahoo group. She is wearing her finest suede vest, hat, boots and wristlet with lots of gears and beads and her best silk skirt. She is gathering together for an evening of fun at the annual God and Goddess Convention and ready to party !!

Steampunk Goddess Fanny Dankworth-Coldbath

Fanny is made of chipboard with a black velvet covering. Her suede hat, vest, boots and wristlet are made from the backing of an old belt, the gears are washers. I created the doll and then dressed her one piece at a time, building up the wardrobe. I found her name here: Steampunk name generator

Steampunk Halloween Swap

Standing on the corner watching all the gouls go by

This little 4×4 card was done for a swap with the Art For the Creative Mind Yahoo group. It joins both steampunk and Halloween styles. The background was made with twine glued to a red background. Two old skeletons are just lolling on a brick wall. The pumpkins were sketched and filled with a plaid background, then gears were added. The brick wall is from a local heritage building. Of course the old gents had to have top hats and one has part of a pair of goggles in keeping with the steampunk theme. They were fun to make and when put together that is when the old song came to mind. The skeletons were clip art which I removed part of the art to create the fellows I needed. A fun piece to create.
