Introducing Guest Designer and our new Brand Ambassador Linda Simpson

It's "Time" to introduce a Guest Designer and new Indigoblu Brand Ambassador Linda Simpson.

Linda is based in the UK and loves all types of crafting from crochet to mixed media and steampunk. Today she is sharing a project using one of the IndigoBlu Small Clock Kits.

Using the small Clock kit and an MDF fob watch I painted a coat of Gesso over them both.  Once this was dry I mixed IndigoBlu acrylic paint Hot Cocoa with Gesso and again covered both MDF pieces.
Using one of the papers from the clock kit I adhered to the clock face and covered with a coat of Mod Podge. I stamped IndigoBlu Mechanics with Versafine vintage sepia.  Once this was dry I then dusted Luscious Powder Orange which adhered to the stamped image.

The fob watch outline I covered with a combination of Lemon Meringue and Burning Bonfire Acrylic Paint with a baby wipe as this gave it some texture.  To give it a rustic feel I then dabbed on with again a baby wipe metallic acrylic paint Pheasant Bronze.

Once the paint was dry I then added FlitterGlu to a foam pad and dabbed around the edge of the fob watch.  I then stamped the Mechanics stamp around the edge with Stazon.

Next was to add the numbers to the clock face. I did this by using the stencil which came with the kit, I mixed Super Thick Slap it on and Acrylic Metallic Paint Goldfinger.

Once everything was dry on both pieces I then adhered the clock face to the front of the fob watch outline.
The last item to attach to the project was the clock hands which came with the kit.  


Happy Crafting
