Steampunk Clock - Graphic 45

I really had fun making this clock. Little needs to be said about the fantastic line of Graphic 45 papers Steampunk- Debutante. They are stunning beyond belief!!!

Unbelievable detail and color. Way to go G45! I know I've had this pad of paper for ages, but just didn't know what I wanted to do with it, so I thought about it. After all, Alphonse Mucha is my all-time favorite ARTIST! Gorgeous works of art I drool over.


This is one of my favorite sections. I used watch parts from my local bead shop Pumpkin Glass...worth a trip from anywhere. Taking a class in PMC there in a couple of weeks. Check them out!



Tim's Foliage and Sprocket Gears are scattered all around and a couple of gears Bill found for me.


Copper Metallic Mixatives brushed on the flower that's layered with a Timepiece and large Game Spinner. You can find tons of Ranger and Tim Holtz products at Joy's fantastic site Inspiration Emporium. And $5 shipping right now! Pre-order the new Alterations Dies, too!


Glossy Accents are on the wings of the dress form, the Rose, and the Time Flies piece. Also added it to the 2 butterflies for dimension. The large black wings are German Scrap from Red Lead.



Layers and layers of paper and chipboard. I just like to load it up. BUT be careful of too much, make sure that your clock hands will turn! Luckily I could arrange it so it still functions fine. The clock is from Bare Elements.


I added a bit of Alcohol Ink here and there to make some of the watch parts stand out better...see the turquoise colored winding knob.



This was the most delicate. Tweezers helped tremendously here. See the pointy gear to the right? Make sure it's far enough away from clock hands so it doesn't interfere.


All the papers came in the 12x12 pad. You MUST check out the 3 new lines at Graphic 45.........stunning, simply stunning!!! But I fell in love with the color combo in these papers the minute I saw them. Over-the-top gorgeous all by themselves.
