April's theme Steampunk..... what is it ?
I know that this theme is going to push a lot of you ..... including myself but it is a interesting subject.
Steam punk is a sub-genre of fantasy and speculative fiction that came into prominence in the 1980s and early 1990s. The term denotes works set in an era or world where steam power is still widely used. Usually the 19th century, and often Victorian era England, but with prominent elements of either science fiction or fantasy.
Also this theme has been used in some movie you may have watched and not realised it.
The golden compass. Van Helsing, sleepy hollow , Lemony Snickets, a series of unfortunate events and Wild, Wild West
Also our very own Patti's Blog is a wonder of examples of this theme
The images used are from Patti .. thank you and if you like this subject Patti makes these tins to sell.
Her Etsy store is Altered state of tin and the link is on her blog.
Also I've been playing with steampunk and I have some pictures on my blog. http://blissangels.blogspot.com/
