Have I mentioned Lady Ermintrude? Lady E (Ermintrude Duffryn-Felix, that is) is my Steampunk alter-ego. She’s a plucky gel, ready to pop off with her husband, Major Tom Felix, for a spot of dinosaur-hunting in the Forgotten Valley or for a jaunt in the Nautilus with Capt. Nemo.
(Are you worried about me yet? I am.)
Anyway, this is Lady E’s trunk in miniature. It’s adapted from a pattern that I bought from Following The Paper Trail. It’s intended to hold mini albums and very clear instructions for making them are included. Well worth the money.
Lady E keeps her jewellery in the top of the trunk (and I keep my Tim Holtz Distress Stains in the bottom – we have an arrangement about sharing). This necklace was inspired by a voyage on the Nautilus..
Tim Holtz sprocket gears and an octopus pendant found in Hobbycraft feature in this piece. Actually, I’m thinking of adding some gorgeous peacock-blue AB crystals between the sprockets….mmmm….
All blogged out for a bit…see you soon…
