On The Road

Ok, it is a project in progress ... it will become a book cover in its later stage of life ... and was inspired by a book from Jack Kerouac: On The Road. I just love the colours and the feel of the cover ... here is my version

To create the cover I used some digital paper from Martora, I printed the design twice overlapping it digitally. I used stamps from Eco Green Rubber Stamps to stamp the screw heads and sentiments onto the paper.
The second layer consists of tracing paper which I printed on using just a normal inkjet printer ... the first time I did this but printing on tracing paper is so easy and seems to be so effective! The Lady waiting by the roadside for a lift and her roller feet are from June from Dezinaworld, our July Sponsor at Gingersnap creations. Her steampunk images are wonderful and work so well with the Gingersnap Creations Chestnut Theme Challenge: On The Road. Body and feet are joined by some steampunk elements from The Sum of All Crafts. The embellishments are watch parts for the feet and a keyring from Lucy pinned to the Ladie's outfit.

Hop over to the Gingersnap blog for some breathtaking creations and join us, Petra.

I spotted this on GSC and it is wonderful! That is such a good use of the keyring and you have worked the image so well.
