I have been wanting to ....
Post about Time Traveler

Remember this post Steampunk Ladies Free Printable ?... and that little teaser picture of the project I made with it? I have so been wanting to post about my project but I had submitted it to a magazine. So I had to wait until I found out if it would be published. Well the preview of Haute Handbags for Autumn has been posted and my little clutch is in the preview! .... I am published!!!

I thought it was perfect timing that this weeks theme at Mixed Media Monday is "I have been wanting to..."

The Artistic Souls of Eagle Idaho submitted these little bags that we altered... I called my little Steampunk bag "Time Traveler" My hubby and I glued old gears and bent wire to a matt board then I used my friends spellbinder to emboss the metal. Then I attached it to the little wooden purse and antiqued it.

I printed the fabric for the lining and added the little photo of the Steampunk ladies.



The hinge was hand made using links from an antique necklace.
