The challenge crew from Try It On Tuesday want you to create something that corresponds with the title
So go give it a try! I really would love to see what you create for the flying time challenge!
My time piece is - again - a tag I used my awesome new pocket watch dies from Xcut on! I love them as they give you the possibility to create a lot of different lovely layered pocket watches by combining the different parts in various ways...some parts you can also mount moveable (as I did with the inner part that shows the moon phases for example).
I cut the outer watch parts and the letters from gold covered glossy card and treated the watch part lightly with alcohol inks. The gears were coloured using metallic Distress stains. Before mounting the pocket watch parts I stamped some script onto the clock face. The black frame was stamped on some acetate from packaging material with StazOn ink.
The image of the old man's eyes was cut from a flyer I got with the mail and mounted behind the transparent frame using brads. I love the wrinkles and that soft look on the eyes. (I love wrinkles, as I think they tell a lot about the way a person has been leading his life so far - they are like lines in an open book).
The texture of the tag's background was stamped using some texture image stamps and cut out stencils to overlay the images. Letters were cut using the Tim Holtz Alterations "Alphabetical" die. Gears are also Xcut dies.
I hope you enjoyed your visit and will have fun crafting (maybe even something for our "Time Flies" challenge?)! Hope to see you there!
And don't forget: for the month of February we were lucky to get Really Reasonable Ribbon as our sponsor for the prize draw, offering a $15 gift voucher to this months winner!
