Well, after a very long winter of discontent in the Zuzu household, with all my belongings being packed away and a desperate search for a new place to stay, all is well and back to crafty normal.
So here I am with my first proper "Artistic stamper" project since November...
Remember this anyone?
So, firstly i removed all the bits i had added for the last project from the frame and completely covered it in white studio gesso. Then i stamped some images in black ink, onto white tissue paper and glued them on to the frame at random. it doesn't matter too much as you will only see sections of the images after i have added embellishments.
the stamps I used were
the gentleman from the collage set and some ephemera from the bicycle set HERE
the Slow and Fast speed gauge.
i glued on embellishments and the main four numbers (3, 6, 9 & 12) and when the glue was dry i covered them in gesso too. you can find various metal embellishments like those i have used HERE, and the numbers are from HERE. you can get cogs and gears from HERE.
perfect pearls sprays, ( i used sour apple, heirloom gold, mandarin & turquoise).
Once all that was done it was just a matter of adding curios. the skeleton parts are left over from Halloween. I added some other numbers; I used salvage stickers amongst other things.
I also added two little feet at the back where the frame juts out so it doesnt have to be hung up. it stands freely on a table or bedside table. although i doubt i could tell the time on it when half asleep. The final touch was to make a hole and add the clock movement ( i stole a battery from the TV remote to make sure it worked).... and there you have the little clock of horrors.
