Fashionable Stamping Challenges this fortnight have a terrific theme of “Like Clockwork” which was picked by our very own Yvonne.
Thank you Alison … Words and Pictures … who chose our fabulous theme from last week
Made a canvas book for my FSC piece this fortnight, decorated the front with loads of clocks and covered two of the pages inside with yet more clocks.
A very easy book to make – just cut two sheets of A4 canvas in half, add a cover and stitch down the middle using a running back stitch. The cover is corecard run through a clock mask which was then sanded away to reveal the clocks before inking. With the same mask I added texture paste.
Stitching the middle works better than gluing plus I added a calico like fabric to the inside of the cover … purely for strengthening purposes. Chose a cream material that was mostly plain but had a very bold flower pattern on it.
The little stamped face was placed over a die of an alarm clock and the ornate mantle clock came from a Hero Arts set.
Kept the inside pages almost monochromatic because I am in love with browns and blacks at the moment.
The left hand side is the calico material and the right is the canvas. Gave the canvas a coat of gesso before I did anything with it but the calico was worked on with nothing added.
This shows the cream calico material on the back cover, how gorgeous is that flower?
I would love it if you hopped on over to see all the DT’s work as they are simply stunning. Also don’t forget that the winner of this challenge has $20 to choose anything they like from Flonz’s store.
