Hello friends
Hope you are all good!
I wanted to share a piece Ive been working on over the last few days...
Its been one of those makes where I didn't know
where I was going with it....
but eventually after lots of mugs of tea, some pulling of hair I was happy with how it turned out
I created the background using a mix of gesso and texture paste through Tim Holtz stencils
I coloured the background with distress paints and crayons
I added some background strips by sewing them in,
I then added some ripped up cheese cloth, wire and old washers and bolts
The centre piece is a n Idea-ology pocket watch, painted and filled with a star from the Tim Holtz ephemera pack and more wire
To finish I added some of my own vintage keys, a vintage pocket watch key and some big chat words
I also used a couple of stamp set Tim Holtz, correspondence, Halftone and rings and Mixed Media 2 sets and stamped randomly with black archival ink.

As always feel free to leave a comment, I really do appreciate you popping by
Enjoy your weekend...

bye for now
