Hello Friends and Followers where ever you may be-always great to have drop into Jumbled Crafts and I hope you have time to say hello. Just noticed that I have reached 100 followers which is a real milestone-thank you.
This week at Out of a Hat Creations we have a new guest designer for the month of August so I hope you will pop over to find our more as I am sure most of you will know her and love her many makes.
The theme this week is numbers and endless ideas popped into my head.
This is what I finally made as I found the clock numbers on the car boot sale for 20p-I did ask if the chap had the rest of the clock pieces but he hadn't unfortunately. Those would have kept me happy for some time on Steampunk projects I'm sure.
I used part of a strong packaging box as a base and stuck a piece of Crafty Individuals paper in the middle of it. Then I stuck on the clock numbers after spritzing them with Gold Cosmic Shimmer. Next I masked the numbers and stuck all sorts of things around it. Hand made flowers, dried up runner bean seeds, lace etc. Then I sprayed the whole lot with silver paint and let it dry. A light spritz with the gold and some blue, here and there and all ready to remove the mask from the numbers. The last things I did was add the quote which is one that I love
The piece is going to be the top for this old jigsaw box but I haven't finished the box yet. The jigsaw had too many pieces missing to pass it on. We do test them sometimes for the charity shop but they want them with all the pieces intact. The boxes are usually really good and very strong so I keep those and some of the pieces as well for crafty projects.
I'd also like to share this with Rhedd and Rosie where the challenge this time is Time
Love Chrissie x
