...is the title of a rather wacky film about a 1910 flight race with an equally zany and like-named theme tune. Taste and childhood aside, I have seen it, and was soon humming the melody whilst creating my new piece for Simon Says Stamp & Show! Monday brings the wonderfully inviting new theme of Elements of Time. From the impending festivities to your favourite memory, just think of how many ways you can play with such a theme. This is what I came up with...
Configurations Box left over from my Houses project and thought it was the ideal candidate for a makeover. With a good dose of Distress Stain and Rock Candy Crackle Paint I was able to create an antique wood effect for my vintage cabinet. I lined the inner box with torn dictionary pages and white-washed them with Picket Fence Distress Stain.
Then the real fun began with bringing these three airborne Gents into being...
Wings! Big cheers for Glossy Accents holding them on!!!
I used three of Tim's Pocket Watches tinting them with Alcohol Inks. I inked and stamped each Gent onto white washed paper, glued a length of Ball Chain trim around the edge with Matt Medium and added off-cuts of Sprockets.
Swivel Clasp to suspend each watch.
I die-cut several Weathered Clocks from Grunge board, coloured them with Distress Stain and Embossing Powder before gluing them onto the back. I wanted differing depths and with patience, super glue and ultra tiny snippets of foam pads I got there!
I raided my metal stash and came across this odd handle. It was just destined for the top!
Time Pieces, Spinners and a rusty metal corner.
Ruler Ribbon brings some fitting numbers into the picture and you can also see the feet which are just four old drawer knobs. I am loving that crackle effect, but my pot no longer runneth over! I have to say I was amazed at how well everything went and I had a great two days seeing it come together. I hope you can see that there are lots of ways to play with the Elements of Time theme, Idea-ology and your Configgy boxes!
here! I just love seeing what we all come up with each week and I'm including you in that too! Come on, make a bid for the Top Three and check out that fabulous $50 spree. Ooooh, just in time to buy yourself a Christmas treat!
So I'm all done. It's high time I legged it! I'm on a mission to crack my deadlines and get busy with a little festive decorating.
(You know... one toe on a table corner, garland hanging from ear, mouth full of drawing pins...left a bit!!!)
Thanks for being here. Wishing you all a really great week.
