Labor Day / työn päivän sankareita

Tomorrow is Labor Day here in Europe. A day of rest from drudgery and toil for these lads, sons of workers who had to work in factories from young on. Let's remember the idea behind Labor Day - and then go outside and enjoy the sun!
We were dead poor.
I like the fresh air better:
I started working on the ships.
We wish for a miracle:
We are the Proletariat.
I am entering these into:
Simon says Monday: Show us your metal
Steampunk challenge: Anything goes
MMMonthly: #23 Dimension
Stampotique: SDC242 Masculine

The backgrounds are full of nice products: watercolor, book pages, washi tape, stamping, stencils, gesso, acrylics. They are rather busy, but still adequate as a backdrop. I added fun metal pieces and some 'enamel' number plates I made myself.
Thanks for looking!
If you are interested in seeing some real life footage from Victorian era workers, take a look at this video on youtube.

  10. You truly are the MASTER of ATC's! I am so impressed with how you're able to create a scene and tell a whole entire story on such a small surface space! I especially loved the concept and inspiration for this set of cards and it definitely made me grateful to have a good job in this day and age where the biggest hurdle is making sure my M&M's come out of the vending machine correctly! Thanks so much for sharing your talents with us for this week's Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge!
