I have used a small canvas board which I covered in Titan Buff paint and then streaked with some grey
I added some hair cement (Vaseline works too) with my finger before painting over with Mocha paint(made by mixing), once dry I heated it a little bit before wiping off the cement and paint
I knew which quote I wanted to use( a Visible Images one) so cogs were ideal…I added some turquoise through a text stencil but it didn't come out too well but as it was only a random part of the background I decided to leave it rather than wipe it off.
Next I wanted to add a clock - I have had an old watch face for ages and now was the time to use it.
I collected some cogs, one chip board, one metal and then remembered I had some small ones from the same watch - they all got the paint treatment - layers of rusts and browns, sprinkles of sand and embossing powder, to make them look rusty.
I stamped the quote using black and mocha paint and as I didn't want it to get lost in the background I outlined the larger letters.
I do hope you will pop over to TIOT and take a look at the fabulous inspiration. Hope to see you there - the challenge is on until the 27th April.
I would like to enter the challenges at:-

Thanks for looking, Chris
