Out of the Box- A Mixed Media Clock

 Hi All,

Am back with my inspiration for the current challenge –Out Of the Box.  Bored of creating your signature style stuff, Here is a chance to try something new. That means something unique, something different which you haven’t tried before… A chance to try a new fold, a new technique or a new style.

Am here with a clock I have created for the first time in my craft life. If you know me, You would also be knowing that I dont try layers. My creations are always CAS.I should admit that am still poor at loading the embellishments. So thought of giving it a try.Have used so many techniques and so should I call it Mixed Media????? I better leave the decision to you. Please let me know.


I have added a step by step procedure on how I created this.

I cut two circles out of a thick cardstock. Took a decoupage Napkin and separated the topmost single ply with the design in it. Covered one of the entire circles with the decoupage Napkin applying Modpodge. Hatsoff to people who do decoupaging...This tested my patience and yes, still there is lot to learn.


Took the second circle and cut another small circle from the center which will be the place for the dial. Wanted to add some texture to this. Added some lattice pattern with the modeling paste in random. Here I didn’t have a lattice stencil. So used a lattice diecut as a stencil.

Then sponged here and there with Distress ink-Worn Lipstick. Added a subtle shine o it with my Tattered Angel  Glimmer mist.  Couldn’t capture the texture and the shine in the pic properly..


Then I traced a clock dial in a white cardstock randomly sponged with Spun sugar and Tea dye Distress Ink.

Assembled in an order of Decoupaged circle frame, then the textured circle frame and inside the clock dial prepared.
Now the outline is ready for embellishing. Embellished with lots of flowers all handmade, ball chain, clay embellishment, Pielane metal butterfly, flourishes, stick pin and pollen flowers.

The biggest flower is created with Tim holtz tattered florals third piece (6 petal) and all other small flowers were created with a five petal punch.

And, The clock is ready to be framed.


Hope I inspired you to create something new. As always we enjoy looking at all your gorgeous creations. So, create something unique, different from your usual style and link it up here.

Thank you. Your comments would motivate and help me improve. 

Hugs
Catherine
