Steampunk Spring...

Hello Dear Friends,
This is my collage for The Three Muses Collage Challenge.  The prompt this week is "Steampunk".  This is my Post-Winter Floral Initiation Machine.  Some places are seeing some signs of spring and even seeing some flowers blooming already.  I'm impatient!!  Here in Maine, we still have snow on the ground and I want flowers!!!  So, I built this machine to get the flowers started up!  I will put it in the garden and hope for the best!

(Sources of images for this collage:
Dials and watch parts from "Paper Doll Steampunk Digital Collage Sheet no 242"- Cemerony on Etsy
Decorations on the machine, including cream marble, corners and floral decoration from "Victorian Grunge 1 inch" - the House Across the Bay on Etsy (Thank you, Cheryl!)
All other tubes, lights, Victrola speaker and label I made into the machine from "Nitty Gritty" and "Nitty Gritty2" - Tumblefish Studios on Deviant Scrap
and flowers from "The Digital Valentine" from my shop Velvet Revived on Etsy.)

  4. I love your idea of a machine shooting out flowers. Just what we need! We haven't had as much snow as you have, but spring is still evading Michigan, too. I wish it would hurry up!
