Face of time

 Long time no blog.

Getting my business running right and life in general has gotten in the way of my crafting, but I did make time to make this piece.

I call it Face of time.

I have used a lot of different products to make this canvas and had a really good play, trying out colours and textures and techniques that I have never tried before.  I pretty much just winged it and let what happened happen.

This is one of my  favourite parts, the appliques I have been hoarding with the cogs.  I lean towards Steampunk and try not to just stick cogs any where, but they really seamed to fit with the piece and the theme  TIME.

I was so happy that this crackle effect worked.  I wasn't sure it would or if I had used enough of the Decoart Media Crackle Glaze.

Loving the textures here.  My first time using clay balls, which I made myself a while ago.  A lot of the colour here comes from the DecoArt Media Quinacridone Gold paint that I used.

I was inspired to make this canvas by a challenge over on Andy Skinners blog The theme for which is time.  I have incorporated time with the use of a Tim Holtz weathered clock die cut and gears.

I want to make another one that is some how flower themed.  Not sure how that is going to look yet, but I am sure I will have fun finding out.

Happy crafting to you all.


P.S  I created a video showing the process of how this was made
