What a puzzle!....F

Good afternoon all

I managed to come up with one of my old styles of art which I happened to think I had forgotten how to get back into.  I have done so many shabbyish projects lately I needed to do something else.  it is a birthday hanging for a man - so here it is.

Listed below are all the items used

Large puzzle piece chipboard which had been hanging about quite a while
Background - paints, vanilla, brown, red, cream, blue, green, - brayered onto the puzzle  
My new Lost Coast design stamp / black versafine and clear embossed
wooden cogs some with tim holtz powder and gold powder embossed
chain embossed with green vintage powder - not all that visible but it is there lol
wooden clock faces
metal TH clock hands
screw brads
wooden wings inked and embossed
playing cards torn/distressed with nk
vintage cuff links
th drawer pull with dymo tape - happy birthday

That's it folks and I hope you enjoyed today's visit - why not follow my blog - if you really want to that is lol

Hugz and love always from the South Coast UK
