Hi everyone! I'm back after a bit of a blog break to share my project for the Compendium of Curiosities 3 Challenge that ends in a few hours. Hopefully the "better late than never" rule applies here lol. The current challenge (can't believe it's #10 already) is to alter an assemblage clock and this is my version. It's heavily influenced by one I saw on Pinterest by the talented Irena Kowalczyk Rudlis and I used Graphic 45's beautiful Botanical Tea collection.
While I can't share the technique I can share what I did to alter my clock.
I started by putting three coats of gesso on the clock then added color with distress paints and distress ink. I fussy cut images and added them inside as well as on the outside. I also added vintage lace and ribbon.
The wood fence is by Kaisercraft and it received a light coat of gesso and was inked with gathered twigs distress ink. The last thing to do was to add three paper roses and my chitchat stickers which spell out my sentiment. With all of the turmoil going on in the world right now I needed to be reminded that this is a beautiful world I live in and that there's plenty of wonderful people out there.
Tomorrow the CC3 crew will introduce Challenge #11 and if you haven't played along so far it would be a great time to jump in. It's so much fun! You do need your own copy of Compendium of Curiosities 3 to work from and if you want/need an autographed copy by Tim click here.
This challenge is sponsored by The Funkie Junkie.
