Welcome to EarlK Design!

The EarlK Design blog consists mainly of entries that show how to do things using Adobe Photoshop that I hope you will find helpful and give your creative mind more tools to work with.

I use Adobe Photoshop CS6, and sometimes Adobe Illustrator CS5, Lightroom 5, and Corel Painter X. However, I believe that much of what I show can be done using Photoshop Elements.

Collage Obsession 18 December 2013

For this week's Collage Obsession challenge, Tiffany gave us this:

This week's challenge is to take your favorite holiday and give it a STEAMPUNK makeover! Choose any holiday you like: Christmas, New Year's Eve/Day, Valentine's Day, etc…

I selected to use Valentine's Day. Here is my finished Steampunk effort. This style is not my normal style. I hope it is punk enough.

I am not sure what watches and gears have to do with Valentine's Day. But that does seem to be what you do with Steampunk.

The outer border is a modified version that came from Dover. I modified it to fit a 12 x 12-inch page and moved the central flower to the side. The gears and watches came from the Internet.

That's all for now.

Be sure to visit Collage Obsession to see the other entries.

Live life fully and enjoy.

Great sprockets and gears Earl...Steampunk doesn't have much to do with anything but you can throw it in with almost anything...it is a fun style I really enjoy working with. You did a nice job I like how it works with the art deco.

Have a very Happy Holiday Season and a wonderful New Year.
