    Just Steampunk! Volume 1 2011


Toolbox collageMy friend posted a prose, on Facebook, just prior to her dear husbands passing. I wanted to capture it for her along with pictures of her love Tommy.  I think she is in the wrong profession because the words were very powerful. She called it the “Toolbox of Life”. I used two Altoid Smalls boxes and used the bottoms of both boxes.  Then I  hinged  them together…colored the tin with alcohol inks, and glued a picture of a toolbox in the clouds that Jan so graciously printed out for me. The images were then covered with a dimensional medium.  Pages were cut out of paper, stamped with “word” images and then I glued pictures of Tommy and family that we captured on Facebook to the pages.  I also attached, on the back of three of the pages, the inspiring prose that Marianne wrote.  The “toolbox” measures  2″ x 1 1/2″…the mini book comes out of the tin for viewing.  Thank you Jan for printing all the photos I needed to size into the small tin…I could not have made it without you!
