This week is the first of my DT projects for That’s Crafty. This is an exciting time for me and thrilled to be part of this amazing team.
It seemed appropriate to play with the theme of time, the notion of time slipping out of our grasp especially as this weekend saw the clocks change in the U.K. with B.S.T.
· Gesso was applied to an oval plywood shape, heat setting before applying Paper Artsy Fresco Finish London Fog. Following instructions, I heat set before applying PaperArtsy Fresco Crackle Finish followed by PaperArtsy Fresco Finish Irish Cream.
· Once dry, I randomly stamped the map from Oxford Impressions’ April In Paris with Archival Sepia before overstamping Time from Oxford Impressions’ Steampunk Works with StazOn Timber Brown. I then applied EcoGreen Crafts Aged Gold and Copper acrylics to the edge of the oval before laying to one side.
· Distress Stain Antique Linen was applied to white cardstock, heat setting before stamping the man in pocket watch collage from Oxford Impressions’ Times Past with StazOn Timber Brown. I cut out the image before applying Ranger Crackle Accents, leaving to dry.
· PaperArtsy Fresco Finish Irish Cream was applied to another piece of white cardstock, onto which I stamped a top hat from Oxford Impressions’ Steampunk Works. Ranger Glossy Accents was applied.
· Once the Glossy Accents was dry, silicone glue adhered the top hat to the man’s head. A Tim Holtz Trinket Pin attached the stamped pocket watch to a piece of cork before adhering to the oval shape.
· PaperArtsy Fresco Finish Irish Cream was roughly applied to a Tim Holtz Mini Binder Clip, to which a vintage pen nib was added with silicone glue. Ribbon was threaded through the clip before attaching to the top of the oval.
· Using the Crop-a-Dile, a hole was created at the bottom of the oval. Charms and a vintage key were attached to a Tim Holtz Charm Clip and jump rings. Round nose pliers were used to attach those.
