Aerocruiser 2014 with Everything but the Kitchen Sink!

I've been in a Steampunk mood and wanted to share one of the many projects I've been working on.  I used a NEW Rick St. Dennis image called "Aerocruiser" which should be in the Zibbet and Etsy shoppes soon.

Click image to enlarge and forgive the watermarks.

I colored the main image with copic markers and fussy cut the image.  Next, I did a rough image transfer from a photo I took.  I printed the image onto inkjet transparency film and allowed it to dry a bit.  Next, I took my 8" x 10" gallery wrapped canvas (which was primed with gesso) and applied DecoArt Decoupage glue in MatteI tried this on a whim as I don't own any gel medium. I placed the transparency ink side down and rubbed over the film with my fingers.  The picture was a sky scene with a church and some buildings in the darkness.  Some parts of the transfer didn't take and other parts smeared where I used to much Decoupage, but I love the finished look!  BTW, I just found out DecoArt has a DecouPage designed especially for photo transfers.
After the image transfer dried, I sealed the canvas with DecoArt DecouPage and used the decoupage to adhere my main image as well.

I wanted some dimension and bling in my project so I took gems, washers, beads, and watch parts and adhered them to various areas using Glossy Accents.

  I wanted the blanket to look like real fur so I sacrificed a mouse toy that belonged to my cats and clipped the fur off and attached it to the blanket with glossy accents.  Hey, at least I didn't cut my cat's fur off for the project!  Hmmm...what to make with cat fur?  LOL!

Lastly, I took some sheer ribbon and some striped ribbon, attached it to D rings, and swagged the ribbon across the balloon.  I added a piece of copper wire and called it a day.  I do hope you like what I've created.  It was definitely a fun project!
