Manly Project

Father's Day is Sunday I hope you all enjoy your day with that special man in your life. 
Kathi here to share a manly project with you. 

This is a wall decor. It was created using a vinyl saying, “The Man who says “It can’t be done” Should not interrupt the Woman Doing it” was placed on a chalk board painted board. I covered the edge of the frame with DCWV paper Tattered Time. Chipboard shapes added to the frame. 

On the lower left used a pocket watch die to create a flying pocket watch by Tim Holtz. Sprocket gears from Spellbinders and a propeller from Gina’s Designs attach to a large gear from Gina’s with a new ringed brad by Tim Holtz. Numbers by Sizzix was added to the pocket watch. Large wings from the steampunk collection was pained (using distress paint by Tim Holtz) then added to the back of the pocket watch. A gear train beneath the pocket watch which was done in copper, silver, gold, weathered wood & shabby shutters. 

Moving across to the lower right, an Antique bike was placed over a weathered clock by Tim Holtz, along with a top hat and a hour glass. To match the project the top hat was covered with the paper that matched the edge of the frame. 

Finishing off the top of the frame more gears were placed on the right side 

with steampunk shapes to the left.


Supplies Used:

Antique Bike Set

Miniatures Shapes Set – Guy Thing

Steampunk -2 Shape Set
