Yes, I hoard. Paper, fabric, beads, ribbon, etc. When I purchased all my treasures, I had every intention in using them! If I ever get to retire, I have my hobbies already in place!

Steampunk Birdhouse for Gypsy Soul Laser Cuts
It's almost spring so you know what that means. It's time for my yearly steampunk project!
The house was covered with
different sizes of squares of 3M foil tape. These pieces were placed
over the surface of the birdhouse. Using a stylus, I made an impression
the foil to create a rivet look. Black acrylic paint was applied over
the foil and then buffed off when almost dried. The gears you see on
the front were painted with acrylic paint. The ones under the flowers
were glossed with clear liquid embossing fluid. Glitter in sliver and
clear was applied to the gear acting as the opening into the birdhouse.
can see on the next two pictures that I had applied different sized
gears to the back and both sides before applying the the tape. The clock
hand was embossed with black embossing powder.
