Eclectic Ellapu Challenge Time.....D

Well it is time for our next challenge over at Eclectic Ellapu.  Fabulous Claire is hosting this week and she has chosen the theme of


So we are looking for any masculine project for this week.  Is it Fathers day soon or perhaps a birthday for the love of your life.

I decided on a tag and pencil tin.  A tag what a surprise lol.  I used a coffeemate tin for the pencil holder. 

For both projects I used foil sheets.  I used a biro to make the faux rivets and a credit card to make the dents along the seams of the foil sheet. I rubbed black acrylic paint in to the foil to dull the shine and make it look aged. 

I embossed black card using clock folder, tore it into pieces and rubbed rub n buff over it.  

 I altered the shiny chains using paint, rub n buff and then more paint.  

The cogs and time pieces are wooden and bought from Crafty Emblies.  I altered these by using versamark and coated them with frantage, heated them up until they bubbled which gave a cracked effect and then rubbed in more paint and rub n buff. 

The label pull on the tag is by Tim Holtz.  I bent it about a bit to try and flatten a little.  The clock hands are also Tim Holtz. The sentiments are from my lil hand machine which I can't remember what its called LOL....

Here is the overload of pics... SORRY! and I mean MOTHER OVERLOAD! 







Thats it from me right now and I hope to see you all over at Eclectic Ellapu joining in with us in the fun!

Hugz and love
