Art Journal – time

It's Suzanne here, I'm sharing an art journal spread I made.

art doll time R6908NS
clockface large  CP Q462 
wheel of the year CP Q534 
hourglass from plate 76 fun stuff  PP76 

Dylusions tangerine dream
StazOn jet black
modeling paste 10240
various stencils,
specimens for example 
Dylusion stamps inbetweenies and
around the edge
embossing folder
original rust OR100G 
wings from plate 07 PLATECP07
TH die weathered clock

The first layer has been gessoed, I glued down snippets from embossed cardboard and applied another layer of gesso. Then some modelling paste was applied through various stencils and the background was sprayed with light and dark green, when dry the top was sprayed with dylusions. I stamped parts of the clock and the wheel of the year as well as the dylusion stamps onto the background. The die cut weathered wood and clockhands were sprayed with green too and then covered with original rust.
For the art doll I used the paper piecing technique with two different gelli prints and coloured in other parts with metallic watercolour. The hourglass was stamped separately on a cardboard tag, sprayed with green colour spray and droplets of orange. This was attached with staples.
On the hourglass I used glue and bird sand and covered it with glossy accents.

The quote says: The time you enjoy wasting is no wasted time.
(Bertrand Russel)

 In the end I highlighted all the raised areas with inka gold.

Thanks so very much for stopping by and having a look.
Have a great weekend everyone,
hugs, Suzanne xx
