Heritage Clock

This is a 12x12 altered art project. It was done as part of a mixed media Blog challenge, the theme was "Heritage". It incorporates a working wind up travel clock, an old key, an Italian ornate cast frame, a heat embossed text parchment panel, the front of a metal rose ring and a piece of 3mm aluminium wire, hammered flat and text embossed into it. The piece is on two levels and stepped at the meridian of the clock.

Christmas Boxes

Craft workshop with Julie at Kraftiz, Rosliston Forestery Centre and John Glossop (Dreams of Vintopia) on 25 October 2014.

MDF boxes painted and covered in our own handmade faux leather, distressed using fired brick distressed ink. We lined the inside of the box and turned the inside into a double compartment with a removable box. We finished the box off with a lid and embellishments. All the ladies did a great job making their boxes.

Interested in trying a workshop? Contact Julie directly or leave a message on my blog.
