TICK TOCK


A while ago I saw a fab journal on INGRID DIJKERS blog where she had wired washers etc along the edge of a journal page and I just loved the way it looked. There is a lot of STEAMPUNK stuff around at the moment and the washers etc reminded me of that too.
So, here is my version! This a big acetate tag that I coloured with alcohol inks, stamped the numbers..PAPERARTSY CLOCKS PLATES 7 & 8.... onto coloured card, cut out and glued to the tag.
Next punch holes in the acetate with Cropadile and then use wire to attach the various washers and nuts etc.
I think I am going to attach this onto a book cover with the scews at the top.

I just love this and had the privilege of seeing, and touching (!), it in real life yesterday. The spiky looking washers (can't remember what they were called!)are a great addition, and those numbers are some of my favourite stamps of the moment :)

Wow Sue this is fabulous! I've raided my husband's drawers before but never like this! Love the stamps too. Wonder how difficult it is to ship to the U.S. (I can see following your blog will be detrimental to the pocketbook.) xxD
