Time after Time by Sioux Jenneys

Hello everyone happy 2nd anniversary to us!
I'm here to share a little something different today...
...it was a challenge to photograph it I can tell you LOL :)





1. I stamped the large and small clock faces from the Tick Tock plate onto acetate (old packaging, yeh) using Staz On black and cut them out leaving a little tab at the bottom to be able to fix them to the base....hope you can see that in the following picture.




2. I stamped the large and small dancer from the Dance plate onto card using Archival coffee and black and cut them out...again leaving a little tab of card to attach them to the base....then stamped one of the separate bodice pieces in crimson Archival, cut out and coloured with shabby shutters Distress Ink and attached.


3. I then stamped the large outline dancer onto some black shrink plastic...cut out and shrunk...and because I managed to get one of her hands stuck and it went all misshaped I added a little shrunk plastic star for her to hold to disguise the deformity...
...I could have told you the star was intentional all along, but I'd be lying!!! LOL



4. I die cut one edge of the card for the back wall with the scroll on the edge die and inked up those fabby cogs in various shades of Distress Inks....spiced marigold, shabby shutters and scattered straw.

5. The base was cut in a similar way using an on the edge die and covered with some paper from the Crowded Attic stash then edged with gold Paint Dabber.

6. The sentiment from Tick Tock was stamped onto white card and cut to form a banner.



7. The final sentiment from the Dance plate was stamped onto a Bigz tiny tags die and attached using an Ideaology hitch fastener and the larger dancer is holding aloft one of the metal mini crowns cut in half and coloured with Alcohol inks.




Ooh! Making that made me happy :) See you again soon!


Don't forget to leave a comment both here and on my blog post for the best possible chance to win one of the two stamp sets I used in my piece today ;)


Thanks for looking .
xoxo Sioux

Shows how blind I am, I wouldn't have noticed the star at all if you hadn't mentioned it!

Love how the dancers in black are sort of shadows of the front one (minus the star!)

Stunning creation!

Wow! What a beautiful piece. I think the star looks fantastic, and of course it was planned!

Redanne said...

Ooh I love this piece - a lot, it is gorgeous, love the dimension and the word dance across the chest of the larger ballerina. Great too that you recycled and did not give up on the shrink plastic piece, the star looks fab. A x

I love the delicate dancers balanced with the steampunky gears and clocks. Great background with that scrollwork finish, and the way the dancers 'fall' backwards into the card is absolutely fantastic! Fab!

Oh, I love this one, I am a big fan of dance, and go to lots of ballet performances (contemporary, too). The layers work great, and it has a soft feminine side,and a distress edginess to it, tricky to combine those. The dancer images are so nice, and hard to find!

Absolutely beautiful Sioux, I love her stamped bodice x

This is so stunning !
I love how on first glance to me the dancers bodice looked transparent but it was an illusion of different media I love it

Hi Sioux, I adore your 3D project. I particularly love the way you have 3 ballerinas in descending sizes. It gives the appearance of being in a dance studio, where the ballerina's reflection is reflected back by the mirror opposite. The misshapen hand was a happy accident, as for me the star & crown really add interest to the piece. You are so talented! Thanks for sharing your art with us.
