The Cutting Edge

This is my "Steampunk Makeover" for the Three Muses challenge this week.  I can't think of an arist who would lend more to Steampunkerie than Frida Kahlo.  Always a bit ahead of her time, always on the cutting edge of art meets- journal -meets- modern-meets- folkart. My metallic embellished Frida paperdoll is made from imagery from Artchix, Finecrafted Designs, Christine Renee and  Rosie Posey.
