Steampunkery with the Three Muses

Hi, its Paint Party Friday, but haven't any artwork to show this week thats worth seeing, but hopefully I will have next week.  In the meantime would like to submit this digi piece for The Three Muses which this week is Steampunk




To be honest not sure why I created this as don't do Steampunk at all well and my free digi programme is very basic.  But when I saw the main picture on The Graphics Fairy blog it was love at first sight, so then added some bits and pieces to it, the Lilac Fairy is  from the Sum of All Crafts  and altered it into a watercolour calendar page.  In the end was quite pleased with the result.

Thank you for visiting me and hope you all have a smashing weekend.
Take care of yourselves, Hugs Annette x

PS.  Golly Gumples have just realised its Friday the 13th, oh dear, think I had better stay in today......

I admire anyone who can mess about with digital Netty. I haven't got a clue, lol! I think your page is great, love the background and the images are wonderful. I don't know what you mean about not doing steampunk well. I think your doing fine with this one.

Hi Netty, I love your steam punk creations as they are always full of fun and colour. Another freebie graphics program is gimp. I've only just started using it and I don't know diddly squat about digital, but at the moment have managed to learn how to create vignette backgrounds. x

Netty said...

Thank you Paula....at the moment I struggle with this one.......lol
