First a layout with a photo of my sweet niece. Here I have used two chipboards - the Floral Clock and the A Moment in Time.
The chipboard pieces are altered in the same way. First I painted it in white gesso. Then I dabbed some tattered rose coloured Distress Stickles here and there. It has the same rose colours as the flowers. And to finish them off, I covered the pieces in clear crackle paint.
And here is a close-up of the gorgeous clock.

Secondly, I made a card for my sister-in-law. I used the Garden Window.
I painted it in white gesso. When it had dried I used a script stamp (black) and then inked it with gold ink.
