I had watched an awesome tutorial by Gabrielle Pollacco where she made a mixed media art journal. Then yesterday my DD and I hit the thrift store 50% off sale and I found a broken clock. She made fun of me for purchasing it, and honestly, I do buy a lot more "to do" projects than I ever accomplish, but I had to make this one if for no other reason than to show her that my $1.50 hadn't gone to waste!
|Here's how it all began....I loved the metal base!|
|I die cut the gears and cut pieces from dry embossed cs with Pocket Watches and Steampunk ef's.|
|I painted two coats of Gesso over this. The "metal" piece on the edge is a piece of a coffee can foil lid that I dry embossed.|
|Ready to start the process (I later moved the arrow)|
|Starting to mess things up! This is Terra Cotta spray that I then sprayed with water|
|I added daubed acrylics and some alcohol inks painted on|
