Congratulations to me, I am still writing these things up! Actually, I find I enjoy blogging and it makes me work more consistently so that I will have something to say. Since I made it to 100 and that's a big round number I decided to skip ahead in my projects a little bit and make something new.
This is an outgrowth of the book I'm going to start working on as soon as He Wishes for the Cloths of Heaven is done. I love LOVE the old letters with the lines around them showing how they are formed. I always have. I think it's the Steampunk in me.
This piece is made from three layers. The cutout letters, the cutout lines, and as a background, an old book page. They have matte board in between to seperate and define the different pieces. I think it turned out really great and I'm looking forward to making more!
Here's a close-up so you can see how they're on different levels.
If you can't wait for the contest, you can buy it in my Etsy shop.
If you want to win it instead (sorry, no frame, though), just leave a comment to enter your name! And if you want to link to this blog (because this is all about shameless self-promotion), let me know you posted something about it and I'll give you two more entries. I'll draw for it in one week. So check back Sunday!
