Steampunk Collage Sheet: An Old London Map

This week, we are really having our kicks on the Steampunk theme. At two of our favorite sites, Gingersnap Creations and The Three Muses, we have found much inspiring work, with lots of fun new ways to enjoy our Steampunk theme. 
The Gingersnap group, as mentioned before, really has gone all out with their version of it, designating the entire month of July for Steampunk style! 
While they're busy arting it up using the hands on approach, the gals over at The Three Muses just offered a digital collage artist's dream challenge for this week around that very same theme. We highly recommend our readers swing by both spots for more inspiration than they can shake a stick at.
(For more goodies in the same style and/or colorway, go HERE.)

Our collage sheet below is designed around a favorite motif here at our Studio, that of old maps--the browner and crustier the better! We've added a few digital flourishes, a lot of grunge artistry, and some of our favorite digital brush artists' brushes around the edges as well as here and there in the middle to give you chances to play on our theme with more abandon. We list all credits at the bottom of this post. 
(Note: Please check with the digital brush artists mentioned before selling any of your creations based on this work. Some digi artists may waive any rights to copyrighting, while more than one may ask that you pay a small fee for specific brushes they may retain legal copyright for. This is only fair, after all--they did all the design work so we could have all the fun! We provide links to make this a little easier for our visitors. Thanx!)
We do hope our readers will join us in arting it up with our salutes to the Steampunk genre, including following those links above for more of what the creative fun's all about.
Happy Creativity!

NOTE: For print, this sheet does have borders all four sides, and measures approximately 7" by 9".
