Time To Be Creative...MFT August Teasers Day 2 69

Mona Pendleton | Wednesday, July 31, 2013 @ 9:00 PM | , , , , , ,

Hi there! Welcome to Day 2 MFT August Teasers! The new products will be available on Tuesday, August 6th at 10 PM Eastern in the MFT Boutique. This release, just like ALL of MFT's releases is overflowing with amazing products! Be sure to hop over to the MFT Blog for a list of today's participating designers along with the amazing prize info!

In case you missed my post yesterday (click HERE) I'm very excited to introduce you to my latest stamp sets, coordinating dies as well as 1 of 4 stencil designs that are included in this month's release!

Timeless stamp set:
Die-namics Time Pieces which coordinates flawlessly with Timeless:
the Collage Backgrounds stamp set:
and the Gears Stencil which is an MFT EXCLUSIVE product which means it may only be purchased at the MFT Boutique.
I altered a wooden box using using the Gears stencil, the Timeless and Collage Backgrounds stamp sets as well as die cuts made using Die-namics Time Pieces. Once I painted, collaged and stenciled the gear design on the box, I was ready to embellish.
I stamped two of the four clock faces from Timeless then gave each one a metallic frame overlay:
I adorned with gears and cogs made using Die-namics Time Pieces as well as a cluster of various sized roses then added color using some sprays including MFT MIX-ables Steel Shimmer Mist:
I finished it off with a beautiful butterfly from Inspired By Butterflies sporting a die cut gear and rose:
Here's a view of the top:
If you would like to see a full 360 view of this project please watch the video below:

I also made a greeting card featuring one of the four clocks from Timeless along with a sentiment from Sending Thanks which by the way is FREE with $60 purchase ~ you can read all about it HERE.
To create this card, I first used the Gears stencil along with white acrylic paint to stencil the background layer then I layered a piece of Kraft cs that was stamped using the number and letter collage image from Collage Backgrounds, followed with a stamped / die cut clock from Timeless. To complete the card, I adhered several die cut gears and cogs that were made using Die-namics Time Pieces:
Here are a few steps that I took along the way when creating my altered 3D clock project. I started with a wooden box that I purchased at a local craft store. I first painted a coat of Gesso and gray acrylic paint on the box.
I randomly stamped a few of the images from Collage Backgrounds on tissue paper using permanent ink.
I tore the tissue paper apart being careful to keep the stamped images intact then I randomly adhered them to the box.
Once dry, I randomly applied design and texture using the Gears stencil and fiber paste. 
Thanks so much for visiting ~ I hope you enjoyed my projects!
Be sure to stop by the MFT Blog to see what the rest of the team has created. You'll also read about some HUGE prizes being given away this week during Teaser Time that you won't want to miss! I'll be back tomorrow with more to share for Day 3. Hope to see you then!
Be Sweet :)

Oh my word. I don't even know where to begin...

Popped over after seeing this on FB!! it blew my mind... I know I am not a mixed media gal (yet anyway) ~~but I really appreciate the art, time, and inspiration of it all!!
I hope you keep your "time to be creative" piece near your office/work space so you can look at it in case you ever lose your crafty mojo for a second... although I doubt that ever happens!!!

These are all amazing over the top super cool ~~ & I actually really love the clocks on the card too because they can easily be masculine or feminine! :) :)
