FSC Inspirational Piece

For the October challenge at FSC my DT piece was a journal page.

Today my FSC inspirational make for the Time Waits For No Man Challenge is another journal page.

Because the two pages were side by side I soon realised that they were not gelling together.  The monkey side was far to bright and colourful.

No choice for it but to tone the monkey side down a notch or two, good ole white gesso to the rescue.

Scroll to the next post and you’ll see how he looked originally.

Totally happy with the overall toning down, they sit side by side perfectly now.

Used two stamps from the Vintage Time set by Ali Reeve and the Gentleman stamp is from Flonz Crafts.

I never throw anything away that has stamping on it.  Found a teensy bit of ripped tissue paper which had some clock numbers on it, placed this in the middle of the clock for a bit of added interest.

Also amongst my stamped tissue paper castoffs was a top hat which was put onto the ring of the pocket watch and the number 31 around the edge.

You still have until midnight on Saturday, 9th November to enter the FSC challenge so please hop on over as we would love to see what you make.

    Oh Shirley – I scrolled down and saw what you meant. Good ol gesso!!! These two pages go so beautifully together, telling a story. I really love the saying about ‘waste it wisely’ … that made me smile.
