Hi, all! It’s Thursday again, so I’m up on the Creative Embellishments blog. 😀 This week I decided to go with an altered canvas using a ton of different CE laser cut chipboard goodies. I wanted to make a piece with a theme that went with the idea…If you can dream it, you can build it. A piece about the imagination, creativity and innovation, so to start I picked panel pieces that reminded me of things in technology, science and circuitry to tie in the circuit board section I wanted to incorporate. I then selected steampunk chippies of inventions that are ground breaking in their own time. I frequently think about the brilliant minds behind our everyday technology that we all now take for granted. Inventions that I’m sure when originally thought of, were considered out of reach, far-fetched or even crazy. 😀 I also added wings to symbolize ideas taking flight, hearts soaring following the realization of dreams…following your heart.

Here’s what I came up with:

Though the hands on the clock are missing in this pic, I did remember to add them after I’d taken the photo. The hands are green so they stand out from the clock face and they point to my current age:
