"Tick-Tock"........for Finnabair Creative Team

Time.....such an intangible force in our lives.
Steve Jobs said, "My favourite things in life don't cost any money. It's really clear that the most precious resource we all have is time"
Finnabair's large metal watch from her Mechanicals Collection inspired my thoughts on time and led to the creation of this little 15x15cm piece.

I've worked on a cradled timber panel; it's perfect for collaging onto because it's hard, solid and smooth as opposed to canvas which has a bit too much "give" in it.
I've used Finnabair art basics black Gesso, Soft Matte Gel and 3D Matte Gel, Mica Powders and Metal Mechanicals.

There is a step by step tutorial of my process HERE on Finnabair's blog.

A list of products and materials used is also on the Finnabair blog and they can be purchased HERE, from Mixed Media Place.

"How did it get so late so soon?
It's night before it's afternoon.
December is here before it's June.
My goodness how the time has flewn.
How did it get so late so soon?"

Thanks for taking the time to visit.
