Hello readers, It’s that time again for Tuesday’s Top Five Favorite Junk Finds! October is here so lets start off the month with some Halloween Junk Inspiration . In my opinion Steampunk artists do junk art to the extreme. They really know how to incorporate vintage junk into gorgeous art. Now I am sure you have seen the adorable junk encrusted pumpkin art out there, but have you seen the Steam punk style ones? Well take a gander at these scary beauties!

For the first feature we have “Jack Catterwall ” by Anne E. Weaver this is her version of a steam pumpkin that she created this month for a Michael’s pumpkin challenge, carved with a heat knife this guy was created with materials you can find their store. Pretty awesome, love the mouth detail.

This ” Steampunk’n ” was created by Shelly Hickox last year for the Compendium Of Curiosities Challenge using Tim Holtz’s riveted patchwork technique. This compelling piece was created using Ideology bits and pieces, and a cupcake stand. I love the texture on this one!
