It's my turn to host this week's technique piece on Tando - do pop over and see what Carol has been up to as well!
We decided to play with masking this week and I decided to go less stampy and more grungy than usual!
I chose one of the journaling block shapes to play with - these are a nice size for a little hanging or a piece of shelf art like this one. I cut a circle from cereal packet with a Nestie to put behind the block and make a stand for the piece, too.
I spray painted my piece black, then used some Tim Holtz masks and sequin waste and sponged silver acrylic paint on there. The sentimenbt was stamped and heat embossed and then I added some cogs, little clock hands and a stamped clock under a glass pebble. The edges and some of the paint were sanded for a more distressed finish.
My dad looks out for stuff like broken printers and cameras for me on trips to car boot sales and the like - they're a good source of little cogs and wheels and although in the case of printers the parts tend to be plastic, you can always treat them to a coat of acrylic paint or Rub n Buff for a metallic finish if that's what you're after.
