Altered Steampunk Horse - my way :)

I'm probably obsessed with horses. I really suspected it happened somewhere in the past, maybe in the moment when my parents politely explained to 4-year-old me I won't get a pony. Ever. Ponies won't live in the apartment, neither int he bathroom or on balcony. Yes...I think it could be it...
Fact is fact - hoses were always on my mind and no wonder when i was in Sweden I was going crazy to buy one or 2 nice Dala Horses - for display, for altering. I couldn't resist!
Speaking about horses - in Stockholm I was also horse-focused collage class: "Everyday Treasures" where we try different ways of altering using a lot of Primary Elements and Silks, Heavy Gel Medium and of course my favorite Mechanicals.
Here is the final effect - my class sample in black, turquoise, key lime and silver. I LOVE this color set!

Supply list:
Prima Marketing: selection of Mechanicals: Small Roman Numbers, Mini Flowers, Roses, Gear, Clock Face Small, Leaves, Large Flowers, Clock Elements. Luminarte: Primary Elements - pigments, Silks Acrylic Glazes, Chipboard Horse from Scrap Matrix,  Heavy Gel - Gloss, texture tools.

Here are some close-ups:
I love the texture of all kinds of fabric layered in the background - the effect is just amazing...


Silks on chipboard, wood and metal - you can't go wrong, right?


Most of the supplies for creating similar project you can find in Mixed Media Place - online store with exciting range of paints, gels, pastes and tools... and "Everything Finnabair" including my 7 Dots Studio and Prima products.
As I was posting not long ago - the shop moved from Poland to Ireland but the range of product didn't change much:) We  are working on adding new ones and re-filling the stock for you now - starting with Prima Vintage Vanity Stamps, Journals and papers, Elementals - Canvases and Stencils and new range of Mechanicals. For specific products used in this collage - please see supply list below the main photo!
I wish you a great, creative day... now off to unpacking!

Oh, what an amazing creation you have - and the story about you wanting a pony is so sweet.
Every girls dream, I suppose.

Remember to take some off-work time when you are coming to Finland next time, let's get to ride a horse ;)!!

Horses, right! I was in the same boat growing up. I remember asking for a horse for my birthday. They were so free and ran with the wind. I wanted to be one with the horse. Great steam punk take on a great theme.
