My name is Lucyna Marynowska, aka Lula from http://ululi.blogspot.com/
I come from the north of Poland. Fifty-six, part time working widow, mum of two grown up boys and a proud grandma. I started my crafting journey 3 years ago as a card maker and immediately became an addicted paper-lover. My latest craze is playing with mixed medias and altering things. My beloved husband has passed away recently and I found true solace in crafting. I love challenges to spark my creativity and I love making crafty friends all over the world.
This is my take on the theme: Time Flies.
I altered a clock from the charity shop. I started with covering the whole piece with black gesso. To add the texture I put some modelling paste on it, using the Tim Holtz Burlap stencil.
Next I decided to add some die cuts to make the surface more dimensional.
Another layer of black gesso was put on it as well as on some metal and chipboard embellishments.
I stick all pieces together with gel medium and started adding colours with Inka Gold metallic paints - very shimmery paints with great shine.
Then it was time for the dial. I stamped and embossed it with Shimmerz Enamel- Molten Metal.
Some die cut cogs, metal pieces , hand made button with the photo and some lettering was added to it. Hope you like it!
Absolutely beautiful project Lula ! I'm sure you'll all agree that Lula's piece has provided even more inspiration for the current challenge Time Flies which you still have time to join in with !
