"An Octopus's Garden"

I have spent the day making some additions to my Journal "An Octopus's Garden". It's a SteamPunk influenced Journal that I have been having a lot of fun with. I will be teaching several techniques from this journal at JournalFest which is coming up very quickly. More of this journal can be viewed on my website here.
Both the cover of this journal and this spread are not quite done yet. They still need several details. The Journal is 8" X 11 1/2", not including attachments. Photos enlarge to show detail.

Absolutely stunning. I had never heard of Steampunk until I saw the word on your blog. Now it's a favorite look of mine. Great, great job. I'm simply drooling!
