Good evening Lovelies! Another gorgeous day today, sadly I was unable to enjoy the sunshine as I was on a training course :( boo! But hey oh it's my last one for the time being hurrah! :) anyway enough of the silliness!
I have made my first Clock! I'm well chuffed with it, it is a Splodgeboard clock from SplodgeAway, it came with cogs attached to the frame but I carefully removed them with a craft knife.
I Gesso'd first all the components I needed then painted the base Black using Black Soot Distress paint, I then heat embossed with clear EP a flourish and script randomly, both stamps Tim Holtz by the way! Then I used a Rangers paint dabber over it and when it was almost dry I gentally rubbed with a lightly damped cloth over the embossed areas and here and there to create a shabby effect, once dry I used a Sweet Poppy stencil, carefully masking off the other areas, I used glossy black texture paste, also from Sweet Poppy, then left it over night to completely dry, I rubbed a tiny bit of silver gilding wax on one side of each flower and the stems just to add a bit of shadow and shabby chic-ness.
I hope you like it? Thank you for visiting and have a great evening xx Zoe xx
