2019 #4: Tick Tock: 'Cuckoo' with ETS {by Bryan Evans}

2019 Topic 4: Tick Tock

Bryan is our experimental geezer, and this time he's conjured up a cuckoo inspired clock in some really nice fresh colours and a splash of gold. ~ Leandra

Hi everyone, it's Bryan from Geezer Crafter with you today, and I'd like to share with you my 'cuckoo' clock project using one of the new stamp sets from Tracy Scott.

As soon as I saw this set of stamps the idea for the clock and the 'parts' came straight to mind. Just love the sketchy feel to this set.

I found the filler/spreader tool shown below in a DIY store, makes for a great painting tool!!. I used Fresco Finish Chalk Acrylics in SeaglassPine GroveBlah Mange, Jade and Coral

I painted some rice paper with Seaglass before adding some gold embossed powder. I did try it the other way round, not a good idea for me!!. 

Smoothy Heavy weight card for the clock's pendulum and weights. I love how a coat of Seaglass has dulled down the gold embossing a little.

Another view in a different light. Love the paperclay beak!!

Really enjoyed this project, I always find it amazing that a set of stamps can set off so many ideas. I am looking forward to seeing how you interpret the topic, and how use your stamps!!

Thanks for joining me today, Happy Creating!! Bryan.
