Take the Challenge March 2015


It's right about time for spring!

Over at the blog of Faber Castell, Design Memory Craft, there is a challenge by Mou. She challenges us to create something with the prompt TIME. Well, I think it's right about TIME for spring!
I wanted to use the petals from the Technique Tuesday set as the pointers on a clock. My art journal was to small for it so I decided to make a piece to frame. There is still some time before spring comes here in Sweden, now I will at least have some flowers on my wall!

Oh, please spring! It's right about time!

I started by making a collage on a watercolor paper
and then I cut the paper to a square.

Added some gelatos.

Added a layer of gesso.

Added some dimension with modeling paste through a stencil.

Stamped some flowers, added some more gelatos.

Attatched the petals to make them look like pointers on a clock
and finally the dymo.
