Take the Challenge with Mou, March 2015

Hi everyone, Mou here with the third Take the Challenge of 2015.

If you are new to this blog, let me fill you in about Take the Challenge. Every month, on the first Monday, I'll post a challenge and my take on it. You'll have 12 days to take this on. Leave a comment to the challenge post with a link to your creation based on that challenge. We will pick TWO winners from among the readers who participated in that month's challenge. And the winners will get a prize from Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft®.

For March, I have a prompt for you: TIME. Interpret it any way that's personal to you. For me, it's shared time, time spent with family, friends, observing how my children like to spend their time with each other... well, you get the idea. Here's my art journal page.

When dry, apply a coat of Gesso to unify the elements.

Color the page with Gelatos® colors.

Stamp randomly by inking background stamp with Stamper's Big Brush pen.

Diecut the clock. Stamp the image. Attach the image behind the clock and trim off excess. Attach the clock to the page with Gel Medium.

Add colors and details to the stamped image inside the clock with Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft Art GRIP® Aquarelle Watercolor Pencils, Gesso, and Stamper's. Big Brush pens. Color the clock with Chalkboard Paint.

Lay chevron stencil on the page and with palette knife from the Gelatos Mist Maker Set, apply a thin coat of Texture Luxe Gold paste. Repeat with the Dots stencil in different areas of the page.
