Sticking with the clocks for now, here is one I finished today in time for the Christmas craft fayre this evening (it did not sell though).
Again using a canvas board as a base, I applied green and blue acrylic paints and peacock and green metallic paints-the finished base effect was reminiscent of the impressionist school of painting, well, I think it is any way!
A stencil (Glitzcraft) of a fairy was placed in the bottom left and glitter frosting (colours used: Royal blue, Aqua Blue, lavender and dark green) used to put the image on the base.
Angelina fibres were glued liberally to the base on the right hand side and left to dry while I heated up some strips of friendly plastic and formed them into an open sided rectangular shape, I also heated up a piece and stamped a butterfly (Visible Image small butterfly stamp) into it. Once the friendly plastic had cooled, I cut out the butterfly shape and then applied some metallic multi surface paint in peacock, royal purple and copper to both mouldings, the butterfly also got a generous helping of iridescent glitter!
A piece of green organza was then attached to cover the whole surface. The friendly plastic was stuck on top of this. A piece of blue organza was then attached over the top of everything and blasted with the heat tool-the centre area of the blue organza was cut out to allow the movement of the clock hands and some cuts were made in it to allow the wings of the butterfly to appear to poke out. The clock hands were scuffed with sandpaper and a little of the metallic paint dabbed on them.
Small wooden Roman numerals were painted in peacock to match and then placed around the clock face-while I did not want them to look entirely uniform, they are at least in vaguely the right positions to be able to tell the time!
