I thought I would share the picture of the clock I made which incorporates some of Andy's timeworn techniques. I'm also doing his on line Timeworn Paint Techniques course. I can highly recommend this if you're interested in paint techniques. I'm learning so much and over the coming weeks and months I hope to incorporate some of them into my crafting.
The clock base we used came as part of a Tando kit and this is the first time I've used one of their products - I've now got my eye on one of their Christmas kits. . . . .
Here's my clock which now has pride of place in my craft room:
|The clock has a working mechanism so isn't merely decorative.|
|I aged the centre of the hand movement using a stick on gem coloured with some gold and black acrylic paint.|
|I chose a gorgeous vintage paper for my clock face.|
|I just love the look achieved using the timeworn techniques. Looks just like aged, rusted metal doesn't it?|
Hope you enjoyed looking at my clock - even my Husband thinks it's wonderful!
I am in love with your clock - just fan-tas-tic! ValerieReplyDelete

So where do I start Julia? This is uber stunning and you must be incredibly proud of yourself for creating it. What a fantastic course with an amazing teacher (got to admit to being just a little jealous, but glad you've had the opportunity to do it as you are SO the person to make the best use of it). Can't wait to see more. Hugs, Buttons xReplyDelete
