Metallic Clock by Nikki Acton


Today I am sharing another journaI page using the the new 8x8” whiteboard/greyboard journal pages and one of the new wonderful 8x8” stencils.

I started by by decoupaging some paper scraps to the surface of the journal page and, once dry, took some clear texture paste and used a pallette knife to add through the cog/clock stencil. Once dry I reached for Finnabair’s acrylic paints – Metallique and painted the entire surface in a mixture of gold, copper, bronze and blackberry.

I added Discover (another in the collection of word stencils) using DecoArt Gold paint. Once it was all dry I added a little gilding over the textured surface. 

Finally I had a few cog die cuts in my scraps box so I painted these and added some clock hands.

See you next week
