De Craftorij in the Netherlands has a fantastic end year celebration, a countdown of 10 days, when we can play around, get ideas. So today is day 2, (day 3 was a photo run challenge that we needed to mail, and not to publish) and for today we got the task to work with a clock in our project. So here is my version in my altered book:
I used Tim Holtz’s clockwork stencil with pan pastels (burnt sierra and burnt sierra shade) on my spread.
I dipped my spread in white gesso to fix my pan pastel background.
You can see the difference, the colours softer and some places the “white wash” is visible. I stamped Tim Holtz’s clock stamp with distress embossing ink and I embossed it with black embossing powder. I used gelli arts monotype prints to cut my Sizzix weathered clock.
Here is a close up on my clock:
So are you ready to escort 2014 out and 2015 in? I guess I am ready. I have my plans and will be happy to begin with them.
