Just let me say...

...for someone who doesn't "do" mucky - I seem to spend a lot of time doing just that LOL

A while back my friend Suzie asked if I'd like to go with her to the Artistic Stamper in Faversham (Kent) as they were holding an Andy Skinner workshop. Having been to one of his demo days I didn't need to be asked twice.

The project for the day started as a bare Tando Creative Large Carriage Clock.

Oooooooooooo we had fun playing with some super Deco-art products that I hadn't seen (and certainly couldn't pronounce the name of in some cases **giggle**). There were 7 of us and as you can see, we all created something very different to look at.

These were all the finished clocks - and they are real working clocks.

Here are mine and Suzie's...

...Suzie went for her favourite colour - lavender, and I went for a red/burgandy shade to go in my study.

No sooner was I home than I was rummaging in the drawer for a battery...

...and with a bit of quick hammer work it was up on the wall.

You might have noticed that I added something that wasn't there in the workshop photos...

...the compass pieces didn't look quite 'finished' so I added a cog from the Chronology range. I just love all the textures we were able to add to this piece - all with the use of some embossing folders and a Big Shot.

I had a wonderful time and I absolutely love my new clock.

Whilst at the Artistic Stamper I bought another clock kit and I'll be having a play just as soon as I decide what colour I want to do this one..........................................

Those are some very cool clocks Toni. Had no idea how big they were till I saw it on your wall. Awesome no wonder you bought another one.

It certainly was a fun workshop, I thoroughly enjoyed it too (and whats so hard to pronounce in Quinacridone Gold???)

All the clocks were certainly fabby seeing them being created, mine too is in pride of place in my hallway (just haven't updated my blog in several millenia to show it off...)
