Creative Artiste Challenge 6

Yay, it's Friday. I hope you all have something nice planned for the weekend. I shall be travelling again but hope to get back home in time to catch up on some crafting.
As it's the first Friday of September it's the start of a new challenge at Creative Artiste We are a challenge blog for everyone who likes to mix their media. As long as you use more than one media on your project we'd love to see you enter the challenge. This is a month long challenge so you have time to create cards or projects and enter up to three times. A full list of the rules is on the challenge blog.
Our theme this month is the popular
"Anything Goes"

We are being sponsored by the fabulous Sherri Baldy who is offering a generous choice of three digis for the winner. Sherri's images can be purchased from Sherri's Etsy Store  My Besties Shop or The Scrapbook Stamp Society.

This time I've made a clock. I wanted it to look like a cog to go with a Steampunk theme. It measures 10.5" (27 cm) in diameter.

I hand drew a template for the clock and traced around it onto a sheet of  grey board before cutting it out. I then repeated the process and glued the two pieces together so I had a sturdy base. After gluing them together I painted them first with white gesso and then roughly with a brown acrylic paint to give a slight texture. Once dried, I dry brushed them with gold acrylic paint.
I used a dinner plate to cut a circle of paper from First Edition Rose Garden and used Modge Podge to stick it down, then punched a hole in the centre for the clock mechanism.

The image I've used is IMG602 by Sherri Baldy. I coloured her with Copics and loosely cut her out. I created the postcard with a Docrafts stamp and Distress Inks.

The cogs and sprockets have been die-cut with Spellbinders dies. I printed the Roman numerals on the computer, punched them out with an X-cut punch and distressed them with ink. I actually stuck two of them on upside down and had to redo them - silly me!
I finished the clock by fixing the hands in place and setting the time.
Now please visit the Creative Artiste Challenge Blog to see the wonderful projects created by my talented team mates for more inspiration.  Remember to have fun.
