Anything Tim

Hi Everyone! I would like to say a warm welcome to all my new followers
 and to say that I am very flattered to all of you who follow 
me old and new. I still find it all very humbling. 

I am still convalescing and not getting much sleep so doing a lot of 
blog hopping. I came across the challenge at A Vintage Journey  
and thought I would enter this piece.

I made my own little canvases by wrapping canvas paper round cardboard
and priming with gesso, then swiping with texture paste.

Once dry I sprayed with distress ink in frayed burlap and Iced spruce.
Next I stamped the boy from Tim's Stamp in black archival ink .

Where the texture paste hadn't dried fully you get a slight imprint,
I quite like this effect.

On the slightly bigger canvas I prepped it the same as the first
but put the texture paste through Tim's layering stencil.
Once dry I painted it with pumice stone distress paint
& brushed vintage photo and black soot across
the surface as  well.

The ruler was made using a wooden garden seed stick which I 
stamped with the Tim's Ruler stamp in versa fine black ink
and clear embossed it. I then  coloured it
vintage photo with distress ink.

A fuse wire, metal clip, die cut cogs, small clock, larger clock, crackle accents &
 a stamped ruler from my stash complete the top canvas 

Close ups


Finally a old bit of twisted wire from my stash complete
the picture.

This is a dream to look at Dee. I love the way you've created your own canvases and given them textures and a depth of colours that evoke all things Tim for me. Thank you so much for joining in our birthday celebrations at AVJ! Jenny x
