WOYWW - Art!!! Something crafty to Look At - About Time!!!

Hi Everyone... back again at the end of a week that flew at the speed if light, or so it seems!!! No sooner have I paddled mum to the loo than it's time to GO again!!!! Tee hee!!!!

Seriously folks, it IS that time of the week when we bare all for art's sake and show our desks/workspaces/rooms/etc for the rest of the crafty world to peruse!! All that courtesy of the arch-desk-keeper Julia at Stamping Ground, and I finally have stuff to show and share that is arty and extremely untidy, but very welcome in my eyes!!!!! I have my crafty'oom AND a piece of work to show you - a tag for TIO and SSSS some elements of time.... HURRAH!!!

 Well here it is then.... it all it's "glory" !!!!some new papers from Kanban, a new toy - the circle pro, my box of masks, new scor tape and stamps and all my usual chaos!! Just finished my TIO time tag...

This view is just inside the door, to the right of the desk, and looking to the cluttered floor!!! Drawers pulled out and used as a shelf for some stamps... how slutty is that?? All those bits of paper on the floor, and such clutter!!

and this is from the door to the left - the box about to fall off the shelf is my kit from Laura Denison... It's SO yummy, can't wait to start,  but time is VERY short just now, as mum is keeping me on my toes!!!

So this is what I made today - first piece for a while...

 The TIO challenge is to make a tag with the theme of the film Time Changer - which is Victoriana/Steampunky/Hugoesque (Jude Law's new film) ... my ickle clock is flying away!!!

 The concept here was time changing/travel so the lady is morphing into the top hat man!!! all helped by the cogs and wheels and the time pieces...

 This is a view of the whole tag, set out on a fave sheet of paper from DCWV Tattered Time. It's a huge clock and cogs... I LOVE it!!

 This clock is from a Kanban set, modified by taking the central piece out and distressing it then raising it above the rays and adding a central shiny brad...

 Those of you who follow me or visit often will know I LOVE texture and this tag is just full of it... I used some clear ep on many of my images, and some of the cogs are beautifully textured...



So there we have it again - full frontal... I had a great time making this and hope you like it too... why not find a little bit of time to do non- Crimble stuff and join us at TIO!!?? Please leave a comment, I am craving some crafty chat just about now!!!
Love and light
Frankie

FRankie this is fab - I knew it would be - it was a fun challenge this week (wish I'd had a bit more time to play at mine!!) Hope your mum is settling in ok. Must be hard for all of you adapting.

Hello Frankie, good to see your mum is getting settled enough for you to be able to grab a bit of crafting time. Your tag is gorgeous ... love the steampunk theme and what you've done to the clock is great. Finding time just now is almost impossible though I'd love to have a bash at making a tag on this theme. Happy WOYWW to you. Elizabeth x #5

Fantastic tag Frankie, I LOVE it and your messy desk/craft area makes me want to come and have a good root round. Hope your Mum settles in quickly and you both get into a routine that works for you - glad to see you having some time to play.

Well done you producing such an amazing piece of art work whilst standing on your head juggling time. Your tag is fab and I love it. You are completely exonerated for the drawer and floor (aka we'll let you off) as you have so much to deal with just now. Looks like you are coping and hope dear Mum is happy. Keep smiling!
Love JoZarty x
