Hello Everyone!!

Here is my project for May month. Its and altered diary for year 2021
for Men, full of steampunkiness and covered with textures from the base 
to top.Steampunk mould from stamperia, die texture on clay with beautiful
lindy’s sprays and metallic waxes
I hope you like my take on the gorgeous moodboard for this month.
Thank you

I immediately fell in love with the new Mixed Media Academy moodboard for May. The main thing that inspired me was the quote "Fear is an illusion". From the colors, I chosed to use gray, blue, red, and gold. I transformed a piece of wooden board I found at work.

Hello guys .
I made this altered book with steampunk style !!
I used Mdf clock and gears and resin embellishments . I used colours from the May moodboard of mixed media academy challenge .
As it says “fear is illusion” . I tried to showcase the illusion on the cover of my book which has clock which depicts time , face depicts thinking and so many gears Behind face depicts fear and lot of thoughts .
3D waves are showing illusions !!
So it states that fear is an illusion which is in our mind . If we can change our thoughts and make them positive so it will enlighten our world with happiness as , I made bulbs here which shows light 💡 in a dark .
There is angel as well which shows hope .

'Fear is only an illusion' but sometimes fear may kill our dreams. I got inspired by the quote and I prepared a steampunk inspiration made on hdf bulb-like shape. I used everglade green, gold and tabasco red shades from the color palette. I used some themes from the moodboard mainly bulbs, clocks, old books.

Hello friends! The text from this month's moodboard reminded me of a quote, "There is no light without darkness". Without darkness or fear, we wouldn't appreciate the light and good things in our lives. I took inspiration from the steampunky images on the board and used lots of gears and a lightbulb to create the symbol of light.

This month's moodboard gave me an opportunity to work with steampunk theme and all I could think was how fear is a natural, powerful, and primitive human emotion, necessary for survival but how many times it stems from imagined perils rather than real. How, most of the times, it is a weapon for a psychological warfare with our own selves. This made me put the quote " Fears are stories we tell ourselves" in the project which resonates with the quote in our moodboard.

                                                                                  Do you feel inspired!
