I am thrilled to be sharing with you my clock as it only arrived on my doorstep on Monday all the way from the U.S. So as you can imagine I worked frantic to get it finished in time. I wanted to created a Victorian type village with the towns folk in it. Hope you like it!
I have named this piece Towns Folk.

I started out with a lot of stamping and fussy cutting. The townsfolk all came from Tim Holtz paper collections. The stamps were a mixture from my stash. Then I began by placing the pieces in position from back to front adding lots of pop up dots as I went to create a scene. Once all that was done I added some alcohol inks around the perimeter of the glass. Now to get started on the outside of the clock. I began with ranger crackle paint over the whole piece. Once dry although some started flaking off it still gave a nice texture,so I decided to try out my new patinas by Ranger and Vintaj over the top. Once they were dry I went about adding my alcohol inks. Next I added some more crackle paint randomly. My Tim Holtz texture paste just arrived along with the clock only on Monday as I mentioned above. So you can imagine I have been spending every spare moment trying to get this piece to post by the deadline. So anyway the texture paste was applied through the Gothic Stencil which also just arrived on Monday. Monday was a very happy day I can tell you.
Here I have added alcohol ink to acetate window on car.
This is embarrassing, Look at all those pop up dots.lol.
Some small embellishments.
Here you can see the town clock and more buildings behind.
Well there you have it....you have finally reached the end of this post. Thanks so much for visiting. I really appreciate it. Enjoy the rest of your day!! Till next time..,,
