Time After Time

The above piece was developed by painting lots of different layers of paint, and different types of paint eg fresco finish with distress paints.
And lots of different clock stamps from different manufacturers.

Firstly I painted a number ten tag with fresco finish limited edition eclectica then I used distress paints aged mahogany, iced spruce.

I then stamped a. Le Blanche stamp on the bottom and top right in black versfine  ink.
I then covered it with clear embossing powder and heat set. I then over painted with elephant, sage , 
lake wanaka, and snowflake.

I used a damp cloth to take back the paint in places so it was just a small amount of the image coming through. I then stamped stamper anonymous classics # 7 in the middle section in onyx black Versafine  and clear embossed. I then repeated the above process. I then sanded back in places to allow the colours underneath to peak out.

I then checked in my stash for various clocks as I tend to stamp a lot of different clocks on scrap /left over paper from previous projects. I raised a few so they would sit proud of the background.
I then arranged them all and stuck them down. Next I cut a piece of burlap ribbon along the bottom and secured it with copper screw brads added some gears.

I created this piece from using distress inks blended with blending foam. Tim Holtz dragon fly was stamped onto the tag with versfine black ink then clear embossing powder was used then heat set. A script stamp was used on the lower half.
The dragon fly wings were used from stamping onto scrap distress sustained card and the details in the wings outlined with crackle accents.
I sprinkled on antique white embossing powder over the surface of the tag bad heat set.
The material used was gauze coloured with distress stains and a coin placed on top, eye lets and gold brads were used on the top left hand side.


This piece was created by mixing puff paint and texture paste and aplying it randomly around the edges and heat setting it. This was then painted with distress paints and then sanded back. I then stamped with Tim Holtz stamp compass stamp and stamped the indigo blue compass stamp onto white card with black archival ink. The piece was then finished off with a piece of friendly plastic.

This was created by painting a background with fresco finish paints, Tim Holtz texture fades, time stencils , distress rock candy mixed with distress reinkers faded jeans and 
Indigo Blue stamp.
Hi again, think I might be getting the hang of this!

This piece was created by again using texture paste through a stencil on the lower right hand side.
On the top left I mixed puff paint and texture paste and applied directly onto the card. I then over painted with a neutral colour of acrylic. 

I then used the following fresco finish paints to paint the background:- mushroom, pansy, London night,  moonlight and eggplant I also painted a heart shape which I stuck on over a piece of Tim Holtz music tape. I finished off with brushing lightly with treasure gold white fire. I added a stamped piece of paper that had been coloured with distress vintage photo and stamped with Paper  Artsy Lynne Perrella stamp.

A Happy Mistake

The above piece of work was created using texture paste through a harlequin stencil and then being over painted by fresco finish nougat acrylic paint as a base colour . Viva deco glitter paste was then put through a dot stencil which I then over painted with a black acrylic paint.
I had previously painted a sheet of white card with London night, vintage lace and mushroom from Paper Artsy Fresco Finish chalk acrylics. Then stamped a large clock face onto the card using archival black ink pad, and cut it out. 
I had an old piece of art work that I didn't like it was a texture piece through a cog template painted and brushed with treasure gold white fire I tore this up and applied this to the piece .
I finished it off with small cogs and a dial from my stash.
