Clock Canvas Collage


Linda is back with her third technique of the week over at the PaperArtsy blog, which you can find here.  

Using my new clock stencil and texture paste I created the textured background.  I lightly sponged eggplant, claret, baltic blue, beach hut, pansy and nougat onto the canvas.   I stamped the images and words from the Ink and the dog, Clocks #3 plate onto tissue paper, cut them out and glued down with Mod Podge.  I swiped a black stazon ink pad over the canvas to pick up the texture paste.  I went back in with the paints and used a black Posca pen to hi-light the words.  I stamped the TH chicken wire in blaze red stazon and the script from the Ink and the dog background #2 plate in ultramarine stazon.  I edged the canvas with black paint.  Finally I added some watch parts to embellish.

This week the theme over at Out of a Hat Creations is clocks.  My canvas fits perfectly so I'm entering it into their challenge too.
