Compendium of Curiosities 3, Challenge 10

here it is challenge 10, just out Studio L3 blog- assemblage clock on page 33 of Compendium of Curiosities Volume 3.  This is my final product, not what i have pictured when i first started this project.  Usually i lend to grungy and masculine, but this turned out to be feminine and soft.

I created a tree with wire that i twisted up for a trunk and bend into branches and roots.  I positioned the tree along the side and bent over and formed the branches into the curve of the clock.
Along the bottom i hide the construction with shaved ice fragments from stampendous, also added small blossoms along bottom.
I ran glue along the branches and covered them with shaved ice as well.

the close up, for the background i used rays layering stencil and color bloom spray- peony.  I added accent glimmer of perfect pearl biscotti spray.  I highlighted the rays with vintage photo distress ink and applied it with a water pen.

I painted the outside of the clock with patina ink- layers and layers of quartz and marine.

I am still not sure if i like the final project but here it is, enjoy!
