Tonight?............ Maybe

A few days ago, I was sent a couple of images by Rick St Dennis. He knows I love Steampunk and it was suggested he draw more of this genre. Oh lucky me when these arrived in my email. A joy to colour!
We have Angelique the Assassin and her would-be beau Angus MacPunque

I wanted to make a project that had both characters on it but not a card (for a change). I also need some more pages in the art journal I've started. This page kinda grew around the images and in-keeping with the challenge over at "Musically Challenged" where the music video inspiration is Tonight, Tonight by The Smashing Pumpkins. The video is set in the Steampunk era for those that haven't seen it.

The base paper is a music sheet from the DCWV heritage stack. (Love this stack!) On top of that are images taken from a CD, MCS Tinkering With Steampunk. I don't have that many craft CDs but when I saw this going cheap, it sounded like a good buy for the odd images. Some crinkled white tissue paper, mod podged on and a couple of Steampunk images from De Stempelwinkel, stamped in white. More texture needed. A bit of hessian for Angus and some green ribbons for Angelique.
Then the searching started for some chipboard letters. They are in this craft room SOMEwhere. I tidied them away the other day. They are in THAT safe place. The one I can never find until too late. Oh well. Time to improvise. In my searching, I did find some peel-offs I forgot I had, it's been so long since I have used them. I spelled the word "tonight" out using a promarker and dotted them on. In your dreams Angus. Hahaha.

So there we have it - my first collage.

I'd like to enter this into the challenge at
