Mini-journal with Steampunk cover

Presented by Kate Padilla & Micaela Seidel

Learn how to construct a mini-journal with a steampunk art cover that can be used for many other projects, such as a photo album as Kate has done, or as an art Journal as Micaela plans for herself.

Steampunk is a style of design that combines historical elements, vintage fashion, and incorporates technology and aesthetic designs inspired by the 19th-century industrial revolution. Think Victorian plus Mechanical, Jules Verne, or Retro-futurism. There are various interpretations and methods for employing Steampunk art. An internet search for the word will give you lots of “eye candy” and ideas. More details and supply list...
