Altered Art Using Times Nouveau and Typography

Typography clock 1

It's another fantastic Monday on the blog! We have amazing altered art from Solange Marques and Andrew Roberts and at the end of the blog, there's a new giveaway this week! Hooray! It's going to be a great start to the week.

First, Solange made the most stunning Times Nouveau configuration box. We are in love with this project!

"Altered art is a something that I Love to make. Times Nouveau is a charming and elegant collection with gorgeous elements for a Configuration Box. I Used Crackle Medium to get more texture on the Box and I Completed it with resin pieces." ~Solange

Next, we have the most incredible altered Typography clock from Andrew Roberts. What a handsome use of this richly colored collection!

"I think it is safe to say I am addicted to clocks and gears. I love the mechanical nature of these themes, and this project also incorporated my use of boxes and construction. Typography is a fabulous line of paper that you can use to create a more industrial themed project. I challenged my self to use a circular box for the body of the clock. I love, what I call the heritage colors of the typography collection. Typography to me has a more masculine style and I wanted to create a clock for a mans study or office.

Tip: Try uses the graphic 45 butterflies and heat embossing powder on to them to create a rustic aged metallic look. You can also do this to Graphic 45 chipboard by using clear embossing powder and distress ink." ~Andrew

Stunning use of the elements within the papers, so clever and creative x

Love the shadowbox

I was given a yard goose that needs to be painted before I can put him out in the yard. That's my next project - as soon as I can get somebody to carry him into the garage and it's not raining.

Solange & Andrew so cool & fabulous designer. As always inspire and blow my mind! :)
