My Steampunk Camera

I was very honoured when asked to be guest artist this month over at Alter It Monthly.
The theme for the month of October is alter a box.. jewellery box, gift box, shoe box..... any box you can find... with or without a lid.. and any shape as long as its a container. I decided to come up with something a little different,  I've had this mobile phone box lying around for a while that was just begging to be altered!

Introducing my Steam powered Steampunk Cine Camera, made completely from old junk and decorated with Decoart Americana acrylic paint!

The inner workings were made up from parts recovered from a scrapyard, combined with an old Airfix model which I found in a charity shop and of course….. I just had to install an LED light in there!!

Why not head over to Alter It Monthly and join in the challenge!
