Design Team Assemblage Clock Challenge #1 Ana

Inline image

I decided to celebrate spring showers and the love of flowers.  I started out with a finnabair technique using graphic paste to get the texture and adding flowers and some pebbles with heavy body gel before I painted the clock with Dina Wakley paint night. I then used art alchemy waxes to color my flowers and highlighting the clock in places.The board was colored with distress sprays until I got the color I liked.  I then made puddles with glossy accents (which I laid out very thick). The mini grass was from Michael’s fairy section and I thought it added great textured inside and outside the clock.  The flowers on the board are Tim’s ideology paper bouquet which I sprayed with different distress sprays.The paper flowers were cut out of  Tim’s thinlets funky flowers #3 and wildflowers. I used distress oxide inks to color them.  The background of the clock is also distress oxides blended together and sprayed for a water effect. I sprayed distress resist spray on the glass of the clock to make it look like rain had hit it. The umbrella man is a Tim holtz stamp that I embossed gold. The umbrella is Wendy Vecchi’s leaf green and forget me not embossing powder with her polka dot stamp. I then ran my quote through the printer on cardstock, cut it out with Tim Holtz’s tattered banners and inked with distress oxides. The cloud was cotton batting. (Regina came to the rescue with her awesome bag of tricks…aka her purse filled with wonders!)If you are interested in step by step instructions you can find them at So go out and enjoy nature and start getting inspired for more creativity!!!

Customer Entry #3

Customer Entry #4

Customer Entry #5

Paper scrapbooking has been my passion for more than 20 years, but I am really trying to step out of my comfort zone and do more mixed media art.  When this challenge presented itself, I felt like it was the perfect opportunity to try it!  My daughter’s wedding took place on January 4, so what better photos to highlight in a “love” display?!

Customer names are being withheld pending announcing the winners of our Valentine Challenge contest tomorrow!

Thank you to our customer’s who participated and created beautiful Valentine projects!

“Love is in the Air” music box. The music box plays a piece from Swan Lake by Tchaikovsky. See the attached photo for the story. All the flowers are handmade. The white ballerina is dancing with 6 swans (7 Swans a-swimming) on a heart doily background. The side with the pink ballerina features sheet music from Swan Lake. The swans have feathers on their tails.
