Lynne ForsytheCandy decided to turn back the hands of time with this nostalgic "Four Generations" wall decor piece. A 7 Gypsies Librarie Drawer, turned on it's side is the perfect memory box! The hands on the hands of the embossed clock are from Tim Holtz' Steampunk Stamp Set. This piece is full of Ideaology including Vials, Sprockets and Gears, a Metal Number "4" that looks like chipped porcelain, an ever versatile Ornate Plate, a Knob and a Pocket Watch featuring a collage of Candy and her brother nestled in a Santos Hand. Check out her blog for more pictures and details.
After much pondering Lynne decided how she wanted to portray.....HANDS.....by tracing her own hand onto a piece of Grungeboard. She then colored it with various Distress Inks and added Tarnished Brass and Rock Candy Distress Crackle Paint. She pulled out her jar of metal goodies to find Metal Watch Faces, Game Spinners, a Word Key. The Alpha Parts were just the perfect addition to her piece.

To Sarah hands are rather quirky which inspired some SteamPunk playtime! Wild Honey Distress Stain and Vintage Photo Ink are used on her canvas and various stamped images from 7 Gypsies and Artistic Outpost. Vintage etchings have been water-coloured with Distress Inks, the metal lettering created with the Chip Block die and Alcohol Inks and Glassine Paper layered underneath some original clock findings.

Studio 490 Mail Art stamp set! The sign was cut from chipboard using the Hanging Sign die. The background and the sentiment on the sign are from the Studio 490 Art Colors Life stamp set. A resist technique was used with the background, which was swiped with a paint dabber in Pool. The big flower and leaves were also created with Studio 490 stamps, from Be Inspired Make Art, She Created Art, Let Your Art Have Wings, and Rose Art Part 2.
Terry made a Destiny Box, the destination of The Hand from The Tim Holtz Collection is to get into the box where there are all sorts of goodies. She used some roses on the top and the papers are from the Basic Grey Paper Curio Collection Pack and everything is distressed with Vintage Photo and Forest Moss, even the lace border is distressed. The butterflies are heat embossed. Embellishments and sentiment from Tim Holtz Philosophy Tags and a few charms are placed on the side.

Crowded Attic paper stash for the background in a plain black frame. She then stamped Tim Holtz's Girls Rule stamp with Distress Ink Embossing Ink, finished with Black embossing powder. The saying's done with rub-on letters, the flower's one she created with tulle & glittered with Ranger's Tiara Stickles.
I decided to work on an 8 X 8" canvas art board this week. The base is coloured with Adirondack Colorwash sprays and Dabbers. The butterflies were die cut using the Tim Holtz Mover and Shaper die and the letters are Vintage Market.
