It has become a personal tradition for me to make ornaments each year. This year I am proud to be using the beautiful images of RubberMoon.
RubberMoon Stamps: Sonya , Snowy Trees
ImagineCrafts/Tsukineko: Walnut Ink Crystals. Memento Markers: Pear Tart, Dandelion, Love Letter, Summer Sky, Bamboo Leaves, Angel Pink, Tangelo, Rich Cocoa. Delicata: Golden Glitz. Pico Embellisher: Wedding Dress.
Sizzix: Ornament Die
Mount Board, Glue, Scissors, small paint brush and tiny letter cubes from my stash
Step 1: Die-cut your ornaments
Step 2: Stamp the images onto the die-cuts
Step 4: Assemble with glue
I wanted this project to be relevant in my workspace as all to often I get carried away with color and end up making mud! This clock will be a constant reminder of the color wheel. The colors that go together and those that don't!
The dial is the pure color and tint. A tint is pure color mixed with white. The numeral ring is done in grey, because grey mixed with a color creates a tone. The base is black, because black mixed with color creates a shade
Imagine Crafts/Tsukineko: Memento Luxe, Morocco, Olive Green, Pear tart, Dandelion, Danube Blue, Love Letter, Lilac Posies, Sweet Plum. Memento Marker, London Fog.
RubberMoon: Clock kit
Other supplies: Black and white acrylic paint, ruler, pencil, glue.
Step 1: Paint all parts white and allow to dry. Using a ruler and a pencil divide the dial into 8 sections (or more if you want to). Take a watercolor brush and paint the sections using the Memento Luxe inks and allow to dry.
Step 2: Color the dial with a Memento Marker in London Fog and paint the base black. When dry, assemble your clock.
Thank you for stopping by and I hope you enjoyed my projects.
