Happy Monday Everyone.
Its Karan here today to host the blog for you. Today and i have an altered clock to share with you.
One of the things i absolutely love about Creative Embellishments Chipboard is how versatile it is. You can keep it simple and use it on cards and tags, or you can completely change the look just by using some mixed media.
Here is an altered clock i designed using a Tim Holtz Assemblage clock. It first started out like this
after a few hours, i turned it into this
The chipboard looks fabulous on this piece. After priming the clock, i primed all the chipboard. then decided to go with black and gold. The chipboard was brushed with black gersso, then i alternated heat embossing with gold embossing powder and Gold Lumiere.
The 4″ clock fit the face of this project perfectly, along with gears; the flourish 10 added great detail on either side of the clock. I added some metal findings from prima along with some beads and prills and continued to build layers and colour.
this is seriously one of my most favorite projects i have done using the clock and i know i will be doing more in my future. The clock hands set on top the pearls, attached with a brad.
If i felt there was too much gold, i went back and washed a bit of black gesso randomly to add depth and shadows. To make sure all layers were secure i used my got glue gun and depending on the angles, you can see a bit of the hot glue, package said dries clear, (ha)
I added some Prima beads and some prills for added texture.
This is truly a piece where time will ultimately stand still.
Until Next Time: Happy Scrapping
