Junk Journals and steampunk collages

Experimenting with steampunk in my art is very difficult as there aren’t many references I can get my hands onto easily in this area, my main source is DeviantArt and Pinterest but I would rather have a paper source in my hand. 

I have however, decided that creating my own references via junk journaling may be the easiest way to find the kind of images I want.  For some reason or another sculpting and collaging is easier for me to do than drawing or painting.  But I want to be able to draw what I see in my mind’s eye!

Junk journaling is something I am venturing into a lot lately because I love that sort of thing, shabby chic and collaging pretty things together, with stitch work and crochet; but I had thought about bringing in charms and brass objects to create steampunk collages for myself, in order to create the characters and sceneries I see in my mind, so I have the visual references I want.

My money is limited, so it will be several weeks before my first collage will be done, but I think by and large, this is the easiest way for me to hone my steampunk art skills.

Happy reading everyone!
