Time for Art steampunk style (Theme Thursday masculine)


Decided I would make a little circular book like my steampunk style box. The background is Vivo Ferro paste which I have stuck old coins, rusty washers, guitar wire & a rusty nail in. This collaged man is one of my fav stamps and I have stamped an ornate key and old vintage clock to go with the theme of time for art! The challenge over at Theme Thursday is masculine so thought I would be early for a change.

I have been spending lots of time in the garden as it has been such nice weather. I bought a little greenhouse last month so managed to potter round in it this afternoon planting up some hanging baskets that will hopefully bloom in the summer..hope its nice weather where you are?

OMG that is really such a great creations with so many interesting details. Love the way you used the clay.
Lucky you, being able to plan for summer, planting allready. Here in Norway it seems like forever until we can do that. Allthough the snow is melting little by little, there is still so incredible much left and today it seems like nothing is happening regarding melting, its greay and windy outside. But I look forward to that day I can plant and plan for summer, bring out the bbq and the furniture. Have a great day!
