Steampunk Advent Calendar

As crackling fires and bowls of eggnog begin to fill our chilly nights, I wanted to share this stunning advent calendar created by mixed-media artist Amy Rozeboom. Rozeboom got the calendar itself from a local hobby shop, and the design elements come from Alpha Stamps, where Ms. Rozeboom is a member of the design team.

Most of the gears come from Tim Holtz and the papers are part of the Graphics 45 Steampunk Debutante line (I think I drooled a little bit on my keyboard when I checked that website out, I have a thing for paper). I’m excited to try something similar for Christmas 2012.

I’m torn as to what my favorite square is. I love the numbers in 21, the paper on 10, and the gears on number 8. Of course, the entire piece works together beautifully and I always admire people who can work in mixed-media this way. If this appeals to you, be sure to check out Amy’s website and Flickr photo stream. She’s got some really breath-taking stuff up there.

What do you think, readers? Got a favorite square?
