Can you believe we are onto Challenge 10 already over at Linda Ledbetter's CC3C Challenge. This fortnight is to use Tim Holtz assemblage clock. The technique can be found on page 33 of Tim's latest book Compendium of Curiosities 3, so why not get yourself a copy and join in the future challenges.
This fortnight is also sponsored by the fabulous Linda Coughlin of the Funkie Junkie Boutique with a chance to win $25 in her online shop. And if that's not good enough you also have a chance of being chosen by the Super Talented Curiosity Crew to win a bumper bundle of Tim's products, kindly donated by Tim and Mario.
When I saw this Challenge I was so excited as I love making intricate pieces on my projects. I started on this challenge and it took me 3 days working on my clock and just before Chris started to photograph it for me, disaster struck..... I had re-read the challenge instructions and realised I would have to start the whole thing again as I was not working on one of Tim's clocks. Scream !!! A panic now also to get an Assemblage Clock in enough time to still enter the challenge, but by luck my local craft shop had one left. Hence, why after saying my entry would be up on my Blog at the beginning of the week and it wasn't.
Finally, when I started Tim's clock I had no idea this time what way I was going to decorate the inside of it, whereas the previous one which I will showcase at some point I had clear plans with.
The outside I covered with gesso, tissue paper and a couple of die cuts. I also layered tissue onto the inside too. I painted my whole clock and added a layer of rock candy crackle paint and once dry I rubbed some distress ink all over. finally rubbing on some gilding wax.
The feet and Handle I triple embossed with gold embossing powder.
My flower was made using the Tattered Flowers die picking up some distress stain and rubbing ink onto the edges. My little frame was made out of a mould and my melt pot.
Can you see my little wooden floor inside my clock ? It is made from coffee stirring sticks, my favourite free craft stash.
I finally found myself in a sewing themed room inside my clock after cutting out my little mannequins, decorating them with paints, stains, distress glitter, fabric and stash.
Thanks for popping by my blog today and good luck to everyone entering CC3C this time round.
I wish to enter this in to - CC3C Challenge #10
