The canvas was created by inking it all over with a mix of the brown tone distress inks. I then stamped different clocks onto a sheet of tissue paper, i let this dry and then made a square on the same piece of tissue using the measure tape stamp from the Ephemera 1 plate roughly making the square so that when i wrapped it round the canvas the edges would be.. as seen below

'Canvas'ing for Time!
It's been ages since a did a mini canvas, but the need to get inky was strong so i went with it.
This is one of those times where you have an idea but it never quite goes to plan.. I thought i'd be clever and use one of my Mabel stamps and try and take a rubbing in metal, but being rubber it isn't as easy as i'd hoped and the whole thing nearly went in the bin, eventually with much much patients i got an image that looked almost like the stamp, i added colour in the form of sharpie pens to the metal to define the image further.
Once i'd stuck the tissue to the canvas using gel medium i smoothed it over very delicatly and added more medium over the top to seal it all. I let this dry.
I stuck the metal to the canvas using E600 and also added several actual small watch parts.
I wording was stamped onto a piece of torn cardboard and also glued on, with the finishing touch being a small chain to hang the piece.
All in all a fun afternoon was had although i really need a masterclass on metal use lol
Thanks for visiting x
