CCC#3 Challenge #10 Assemblage Clock

Wow, here we are at Challenge #10 The Assemblage Clock~
I love the assemblage clock. As always we cannot share the
techiques on how we acheive the final outcome. So if you wish
to chime in and join the fun you can still purchase Tims latest book
from him directly!

Thank you to Linda Ledbetter for hosting the challenges and here is
a link to Lindas Blog for all the information:

Thank you to Tim and Mario for their stash of goodies to the winner.

I started with a Tim Holtz Assemblage Clock I had painted months ago.
So I figured I would finish it for this current challenge. Diana Wakely
White Gesso, Recollections Green Shimmer Spray.
The photo I usedI had bought sometime ago.
I loved this couple and always feel a good sense
when I look at the photo! I used the words: Out Story on the inside by their
picture. On the glass of the Assemblage Clock I stenciled the word: together.
The background paper is Graphic 45. I used Tim Holtz Industrious
Frames and Trims around the photo. And used one of Tims Bird
embellishments behind the photo. Small paper roses adorn the photo.
I used TH's Coin embellishment forever and the no#4. The ribbon
I had and felt it blended nicely with the color of the clock. And
the flowers wrapped around the side are from Prima. Small white
plastic beads, Mushroom Acholol ink.

Life has a been a collison course of late between the Earthquake here Napa.
Time now transitions into the grace of autumn
and fall where livid colors ignite the mind with the realization that color abounds
and so does the course of living.
Thanks for stopping by!
