I'm travelling into a new way of working, a new country, a new language, and a new hobby which I'm passionate about. Come with me for some of the journey...

Steam(Punk) Train



Hello all... second sneak peek in a row in this busy week!

After yesterday's Artistic Stamper project, I've a quick post here at Words and Pictures today just to let you know about a chance to revisit a real blast from the past over at Artistic Outpost today.  

I'm sharing a project I made way back in September 2012, before I was even on the Artistic Outpost Design Team... but it was one of my favourite early makes (when I'd only been on this whole Craftyblogland journey for a few months), and I thought it deserved an airing over there.

It would be lovely if you have time to hop over and check it out.  For many of you it will probably be the first viewing, and I hope you enjoy the nostalgic trip if you saw it before!

A time will come when people will travel in stages moved by steam engines from one city to another, almost as fast as birds can fly, 15 or 20 miles an hour...

Fabulous triptych Alison, the stamping onto tissue paper was brilliant it has given you a beautiful symmetrical design. Xx

I had not seen it before. Fantastic project! Such stamping and layering, but still has a simplicity of subject, the train! Almost can be there. Wonderful!

Hugs, Cathy-Lynn

Ellie Knol said...

This looks great already, off to see more!

Deborah said...

Just been to see it. I'm really glad you dug it out from the archives, Alison - it's fantastic and demands to be seen and appreciated. I epsecially like it that it's quite masculine - I think we crafters often forget that genre (too hard?)apart from the steampunk stuff.

Mary Elizabeth said...

Went over to AO and saw the entire project. I am so glad you shared this piece with us. Love the stamps and how you used them. The idea of stamping on tissue paper so that you can reverse the train was brilliant. No meager crafty beginnings for you :) You came out of the gate with innovative and stunning projects. Love it! -- Mary Elizabeth

Have just taken a look and must say I'm missing words. A fantastic triptych - FANTASTIC.

Princess Judy Palmer said...

It's a very lovely piece although it does bring back those annoying word math problems. One train leaves the station heading west at 25 mph, the other train leaves a station heading east at 28 mph, how many lawyers will be involved?

Dianne said...

Hello Miss Alison, I'm sure it show an extra showing and I believe my first, squawk, I'm so excited, flying there right now in high gear..

Dianne said...

Okay I'm back :), Missy you were born to create, the triptych is just fantastic, the front is fan-tas-tic, looks like some old black and white photos, love the sky, amazing, the back is stunning, the way you joined it brilliant, you know what is wonderful is to have seen you come into your own, your work was fantastic then, now your creations with all your very own special touches, that would be those magic fingers, superior work now my dear, I feel blessed, you are one of my biggest inspirations, thanks Miss Butterfly, flying to my desk, while there is a few ours of light, have a wonderful day, ((( BIG HUGS)))...
