StudioL3, and the lovely Linda Ledbetter. She wants us to create a tag using the techniques shown by Tim Holtz (stop trembling, Gaywood, and get on with telling it...!!!) on his 10th tag of 2008 Christmas... He created a background by using a mask and a home made spritz of distress ink and perfect pearls... Go check it all out, because it's well worth the inspiration!!!
I started with a large tag, and spritzed it with a mixture of antique linen and vintage photo, with some golden mica shaken in... The large clock mask is a fav of mine, and it always looks bold and beautiful. I sploged it with stormy sky, when it was dry then did the splatter thingy - sounds like a crazy dance!!! The bird is embossed with ep then cracked and he carries a crown I got from Lin Brown's shop, after the brilliant TH ArtsyCraft day... I took a Prima flower and added some new fangled mesh-type ribbon I found at the NEC on Friday... It's WONDERFUL stuff, and can be used for allsorts of things, including jewellery!!! Watch out for it 'cos I shall use it lots in future!! The button is TH again...
The last ickle bit I want to chat about is the tiny watch I made in shrink plastic and stuck to a sprocket gear... I love it and I shall do that again sometime too. So there you have it, my "cuckoo clock" for this premier launch challenge. There will be loads of crafters more able than I entering this one, but I bet they don't enjoy making their pieces as much as I did mine!!! tee hee.. I shall also enter it into the Simon Says Stamp and Show - a hat - I expect a crown will do!!
Thanks for looking, and please leave a comment, I love reading them...
Love and light
