Here is my submission to the French Manor contest. I am really excited about this one. I was hit with the idea because the clock is one of my favorite cuts from this cart. I decided, heck, I'm going to make a real clock! So I did! I started with a 12 x 24 " canvas and painted it teal, making messy brush strokes. Then I cut out a 11 1/4" cut of the clock from FM and inked the edges to make it pop. I also used the layer on Eleanor cut out on vinyl and took the reverse of it, stuck it to the canvas, and painted that on with magenta paint - several layers - and then took some bronze ink and dabbed it on. After that, I cut out Medallion 2 for the face of the clock and Penwork on the base area of the clock to add a little flair. I painted those with the same magenta I did the top flair in and dabbed them with bronze ink. I took some special magenta and bronze paper to put underneath the 2 embellishments and glued them all down. Several coats of glossy Mod Podge later and voila! I cut a space for my clock pieces in the canvas and attached it. I've included 3 photos of the project - I wish I could fully capture the color and how neat it looks, but alas, even as a photographer with a light box, I could not show you all the neat details. I hope you enjoy it as much as I enjoyed making it!
My name is Megan and I have a beautiful family that expects to see me walking around with a camera in my hands most of the time! I've been seriously into photography for about 14 years now, started my own business in 2007, and in that time have been able to take several courses, teach a couple, and spent most of my college career in the darkroom. I've graduated from 35mm and manuals cameras to the age of digital and I am also a Photoshop expert. I've been scrapbooking since before I knew what scrapbooking was. My cousin and I used to spend summers putting together notebooks with cutouts when we were in our early teens and I have since graduated to combining both my photographic and artistic skills to turn paper into pieces of art!
