Exhibit A


Started off with a piece of corrugated, exposed all the edges. Added a couple of different pieces of gelli plate prints. TH die cuts, pocket watch, picture wheel and tiny tabs.  Wheel and tab was covered in a mix of peeled paint and weathered wood distress embossing powder.


Close up of the embossed picture wheel and gelli plate print.


 Added film strip ribbon and a metal clock face.


And a couple more idea-ology pieces.
