Altered Clock and WOW Embossing Powders

Re-blogged by me from WOW EMBOSSING POWDERS

Hello and welcome back to WOW Embossing Powders,  Donna here today to share a project that I created.  This months theme is TIME.  It took a while to think what I could create, but once I had that pic in my mind it came together nicely.

TIME IS PRECIOUS…WASTE IT WISELY

I have had this Tim Holtz clock for a while now and knew I wanted to do something special with it.  I thought it would fit nicely into this months theme of time.

There was a lot of prep work for this project.  I covered the entire clock in white distress paint.  Why you ask, to give my surface some tooth.  I knew I wanted to emboss on it and I needed something for the embossing powder to grip to.  Once my paint was dry I covered it in a layer of Blue Topaz (such a stunning colour)  and heat embossed it.  I then got a mask out and in sections I added versa mark ans then vanilla white, again heat embossing.
I then spent some time adding more embossing powder for highlights,  I added Calypso to areas and  to blend them in I added more Vanilla White.  After I had got the colours right in my mind I then added some distress paint to areas.
For the inside of my clock I tissue papered and then sprayed with Lindy’s gang sprays (fallen in love with these) then added some fussy cutting and built up a scene.  I have used Memory Maze chipboard birds and embossed them with Blue berry
These lovely little memory Maze Girls have been embossed with Seafoam White and added to my scene with some foam dots.  Once my scene was complete I added to clock frame with some flowers and a wee saying.  To me one of the girls is telling some thing to the other,  so I found the quote ” Time is Precious, waste it wisely”  which again goes really well with our theme .

Best Mates

One thing I find hard is creating layouts for my boys,  there is so much product out there for our girls but so hard to find exciting boy products.  I received a parcel from MEMORY MAZE CHIPBOARD and it it included lots of arrows.  Arrows can be used for many things but I thought that they would look great on a layout for Alex.
Alex has found a wee mate who just lives around the corner. He loves to go round and play.  I wanted to create a layout that  showed their friendship.  This is what I came up with.

I added memory Maze arrows to frame my photo,  these have been altered by adding distress paint and hammered a bit to give texture.  I then got other colour distress paint  and rub it on with my finger to give more interest.

I added Tim Holtz rub-ons to the photo.

For the background I used one of my favourite techniques to do.  Using a mask I add heavy gel medium and then use WOW foil papers over top. Yummy effect!

Thanks for popping on by,  hope I have inspired you to go get those photos out and have some fun.  Happy Scrappin everyone xox Donna

Christmas pocket page layouts

I am new to pocket pages and are finding my way around them,   I love the idea behind them to share all the photos I take threw out the year.  As you could imagine I take a lot of photos and for many years they just sit in big piles.  So my mission this past year has been to scrap them.  It’s a completely different style to what I am used to but I am sure I will find my feet.
