Take Time to................with RSD

The start of a new month. November heralds the start of the Christmas rush for many, but also when the weather really starts affecting me. The cold, gloomy, damp mornings are a struggle to get through for me as, I suspect, many of you out there. Wrap up warm and craft.
The 1st of November especially sees the beginning of a new Progressive Challenge over at the Sparkle & Glitter Blog of Rick St Dennis' EDT.
I made a clock face using Art on the Brain from the Etsy or Zibbet shops
 The greyboard base was first primed with gesso. Then the painting really started.
 Decoart paints in warm white, yellow oxide, quin. gold, and red oxide using imagination crafts stencils and stamps from Visible Image. Yes, you can use acrylic paint on your stamps - make sure they're well cleaned after though.
The image was coloured then printed onto copy paper and adhered with gel medium, left to dry before wetting the paper and rubbing off gently. The whole thing was then painted with clear crackle then sealed. (Americana decou-page)
The little skulls? these were made by making a mould of a bead then making 12 paper clay impressions. Then painted with the same paints as the clock face with just a touch of mica loaded paint.
The clock mechanism was shop bought.

OK - your turn to create. Something - Anything Goes for the first part - with an RSD image and enter into the challenge

I'd like to enter my clock into the challenge
Imaginations Crafts - Anything Goes


  1. What a fun clock! Love the little skulls you've used for the numbers!

  2. This is an amazing clock. I wish we lived closer. I would come and take it away from you. Really, a marvelous mixed-media piece. Beautiful my friend!
