Steampunk at JFF

Well they have a fun subject at Just for Fun this week. I have only ever made Steampunk anything once before and not sure I grasped the concept then--well still not sure to be honest lol. Loved looking at the DTs samples and also all the entries so far and wish I hadn't made mine yet cause I came away with lots of ideas after seeing all the others lol.

This is a photograph of my dad and my aunt--everyone seemed to have a picture taken sitting on or near to a moon shape in the olden days lol My dad was a design engineer and I am sure he would have loved to know that he is now part of a Steampunk piece of art :)--or is it?  It is about postcard size.

If I have time I would like to do another one now I have seen all of the great work from everyone else.
