Be Authentic – Karan Gerber – Mood Board Inspiration

Hi Friends, welcome to my blog today, I have some mixed media inspiration for you designed for Dusty Attic. You know how much i love cogs, gears and time pieces, and this is for the January Moodboard Challenge. Here is the moodboard for January.

Here is my take on the challenge;

the clock is from prima; and it has been sitting in my corner, waiting to be altered; i love the chipboard cogs and gears for this one and the Broken Bit Numbers add an awesome touch too. 

I used one of the industrial corners and placed it on the left lower side of the clock. I have to admit, im not a fan of pink, i have two boys and hubby makes three; although i dont mind working with pink, its not my go to color, so i used all the colors on this project except the pink!

i have the navy blue; the turquoise; the grey and light tan and my yellow is more of a mustard yellow ( Yellow Rust) but yellow just the same ( Wink) 

I cut out a piece of chipboard in a circle and hot glued this right inside the center of the clock and build all my layers on this.  Starting first with the mini chains, adding a Broken Bit Number, then cogs and gears

I cog border, i dampened with water and molded it to the side of the clock while still wet; and i added a piece to the right side and left side of the clock. 

Here is a top view of the clock, i love how this turned out and hope i have inspired you to join in on this Months and the first Challenge for 2020

Here are the products i used on this project.
