I mentioned I'd been rearranging rooms
recently...and realised I no longer had a
clock in my Art room....
so I made one :D
I took this old canvas I'd "borrowed" bits from...
and gave it a thick coating of gesso,
scraping some extra texture as I went along.
Been dying to try some "weak washes"...
letting each layer dry*not my strong point lol*
before adding another...
til I got this yummy crusty finish :D
I love the way Brenda Brown uses metal on her projects
*see her amazing projects at Bumblebees and Butterflies*
so I made myself a metal embellie by embossing an
old Tomato puree tube and cutting a piece out.
Keeping to faded colour tones I collected some papers
to layer (distressing as I went along)...
attaching everything with matt medium and tape.
Really pleased with the final "grunginess" of the canvas
and the depth created by the different washes.
I also used pencil around the edges of the individual elements
to add definition.
Now to position the "clock" mechanism.
Once I decided where, I stamped a clock face onto
tissue paper and glued it down with matt medium.
I also added glazing medium to the clock face for
over all I am very pleased with my new
Enjoy :D XXX
