Sunday Stampers - Week 96 - Anytime At All

Morning Stampers `:O)) Thank you all for joining in with the challenge last week... lots of lovely bits & pieces to see on my travels this week. Today sees a new challenge...reverting back to my love of The Beatles, I have chosen another one of their songs as the title....which means that the theme this week is TIME. To join in with the challenge, all you need to do is make a piece of art, add in some stamping and the theme and then leave me a comment here with a link to the place you are showing your artwork... I can then hop on over to see it. The theme stays open until next Saturday, 27th March '10.




For my entry this week, I have used beeswax and canvas to make a collagey stylee hanging piece. The base is an 8" square piece of canvas oil board, which was painted with my very favouritest paint in the whole wide world ever - Claudine Hellmuth's Traditional Tan. I used three ickle canvases on the piece to add some depth...and these too were painted with Trad Tan.




I used tissue paper to stamp onto - using black StaZon - and then painted on melted beeswax to stick the tissue to each canvas. All of the stamps used on this project are by Paper Artsy - I have had this project in my head for about three months and finally got around to playing with the stamps - they are from the Clocks and the Ding & Dong collections...which give a really cool Steampunky look to any artwork.




Once the ickle canvases were made, I set about making a big collage for the base...using one sheet of tissue and stamping randomly onto it. Before I stuck it to the base, I used some brown and teal coloured paints just to add some colour into the background...using Cut & Dry to drag the paint across the base canvas board. Once these were dry, I painted the base with beeswax and then placed the tissue on it...the painted more beeswax over the top...the tissue was from a "handy pack" and was near enough the right size...normally I would do bits and strips of tissue but thought I would go for a change and have a single sheet.




The mini canvases were then spritzed with Jazz Blue Glimmer Mists just to add in a little colour...and I swiped a brown and a teal StaZon around the edges too. The clock on the hanger and on the board itself are made from Ten Seconds Studio's metal, stamped and then puffed out to make them a little curvy...then scootched around the edges to neaten them up. Finally, I added loads of clock ephemera and some Idea-ology pieces...check out the large glass thingy in the middle...it is one of those opticians eye piece lens jobbies...it has been in my collection for yonks and I have never wanted to use it...saving it for a special piece...so I am chuffed I used it eventually LOL




Thanks for looking...have a great week...I am off out today...tis a special birthday party :O)) and I am all set and ready with pressies, card and cake...just hoping the weather behaves so I don't have to drive in the rain!

Lovely piece Hels!

I am such a dimwit cos I could have entered my last thimble in last weeks Bits and Bobs but only finished late Sat night so didn't, if I had held off for a few hours I could have entered it for time..

But I have done something for this weeks but I cant show you cos I have done two birthday cards and the people havent opened the yet.. well I haven't sent them to be truthful but their birthdays are later this week, so will blog them then

god I waffle!

Hels - this is fabulous - maybe you'll inspire me to get my wax and melting pot back out- I used it over a year ago to make 14 Christmas gifts and it's been collecting dust ever since... Love the collage board and I love clocks - they are timeless (snort - pun intended)...
