October 28th

We weren’t supposed to put big pics of our makes at the LB Craft/Paperartsy weekend on the web until the following weekend had finished.  So I have just done a little photoshoot of my makes:

The BIG make was this clock.  I have to admit that I am not all that keen on it!  I think it’s the curly bracket clockface, and the fact that it looks very handmade!  But we used lots of techniques in it.  I do love the metal embossing, and bought some moulds to go with my Ten Seconds Studio metal tool kit.  I also think I over did it with the stamping!  Which is funny, because I originally did very little stamping on it, and decided it was finished, then I saw everyone elses……..

This little box was fun and quick to make!  I love that stamp we used for the inside, and just had to buy it!  It is coloured by using glimmer mists as paint.  I love the crackle finish to the clock face too.

I just love this too!  It is sooooo arty!  (One improvement though would have been to stamp the wings up the right way!)  The centre is that stamp again, stamped onto metal, then embossed, squirted with pink glimmer mist, then covered in molten UTEE, with a square cookie cutter to make the shape.  Tiny clock pieces were glued on in one corner afterwards.

I love this little book!  We used loads of acrylic paint, metal and stamps!  I just love the way the quote stamps have stamped.  This little book lives on my desk at work, but I bought it home today to take these pictures.

I love everything you made! I love the big clock most of all, and the bird in the last project really makes me smile. Haven't seen that image before.
Thanks for sharing.
