We're featuring Tejae Floyde this week in our guild, and with photos of her gorgeous hearts greeting me everyday i got so inspired and did a few hearts of my own. I started making them for my dogs, but soon ended up with a few for my friends. It's sooo much fun and so easy!

I'm thinking of making them into a mobile or wall art.

Also this month of love, we had our Steampunk Hearts Challenge.

I didn't really plan on joining since I've never really tried steampunk and no steampunk stuff to use, but after seeing a few entries from my co-members my curiosity was piqued!

I guess I had to take the plunge some time, right? :)

Here's what I came up with
---- after about 3 or 4 tries, lol

I bent an old watchface in half then painted it.
I must say, the paint did wonders in the way of antiquing and mimicking rust!

All I had were plastic gears and a few metal parts from a really inexpensive, old watch. I just painted the metal ones with acrylic paint to make them look rusty and old. The gears I added after I baked the heart-- I also painted them since they were white and looked absolutely out of place.

This was a really challenging project for me but it taught me to always try new things. We never know when we're going to find our new adventure.

Happy claying!
