Oh I have been so excited to do this blogpost!! Now promise me you will leave me a comment (to get entered in the giveaway) and tell me what you think of this trend!
So a few months ago, I happened to watch a random documentary on some random channel about the world of Steampunk. It explained the trend which revolves around an old school science fiction genre. People get really into it and get dressed up and go to events. There really is a whole Steampunk world out there for their fans! THEN, one of these times when I posted on Facebook asking what kind of stacks you wanted to see---people kept saying "Steampunk!" So I talked to my girl, D, who is in charge of all artwork that comes out of DCWV and asked her about the trend. Well, she pulled out the cutest stack and said, "Guess what's coming out in July!" They already knew the trend, had it designed and on the calendar to be released. (Keep reading for a few teasers from the stack!)
So that leads us to...What is steampunk?

You need to see some pictures to really catch the vibe!! Here is a pic I found of some people dressed up at a Steampunk Event. They go on all around the word. They coordinate through social media and the Internet. Fascinating!!
Steampunk is turning up all over the place! Here is the cover of the new John Mayer album.
Even Hello Kitty can dress up in her Steampunk costume!
Gears, clocks, ravens
Mixing textures and themes
These are some of the icons that show up the most in Steampunk world. I think watching the show on TV really fascinated me with the trend! I love seeing people be creative and happy and the people into Steampunk look like they are having a blast :)
Here are a couple peeks at our new Steampunk Stack which is coming out the begining of July. It has a cool name which I am not sharing yet and I can't tell you what stores it will be in. You will have to wait! But as always, we pull through in giving you amazing prints and quality in stacks that you can hoard and hoard and CREATE with :) hee hee!
PLEASE leave me a comment and let me know what you know about the Steampunk world and what you think of it!! I will pick some stack winners on Monday :) Have a fabulous weekend!!
