  5. Great use of the colours and I love the composition on this one Donna, my fave part is the additions around the man, especially the cog coming out of his head!

  8. Love all your steampunk layers here Donna, I spot the other half of the bird cage from your later post... very clever. Your rusty wall looks brilliant, especially against this background colour. Mo x
