The 2017 steampunk themed art show will be without my creative display. I have relented to the idea that anything I did would either look like I tried too hard or seemed stereotypical. In my efforts to create something related to Steampunk the best ideas I had were three dimensional. So in the end, I ditched the show as an opportunity and am looking forward to visiting it on opening night. I wonder what other people think of when it comes to Steampunk?
Now there were supplies lying around; bolts, nuts, sheet metal and new metal snippers. Then a thought chimed into in head. "Tree charm!" With a bit of fishing wire and beads and one misfit hubcap, I made a shiny and sharp "don't touch" tree charm. I'm curious if the birds will nest in the hubcap. If so, then it's kind o a two-for-one deal. They won't be affected by the sharpness of the metal strips, if you were worried.
