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

THANKS for the Chance to WIN!!!

Oops....forget to add my favorite Spring Project!!! :(
Making decorative Flower Pots for all the New Flowers to Brighten up our yard!!

Two very highly creative projects today. Love the layers and creativity. Beautiful.

Both projects are absolutely stunning. Such detail and great use of embellishments.

My favorite type of spring project is anything that involves flowers or the rebirth of something wonderful...babies, insects, or something about the beach or ocean!!

Love getting the our porch - which wraps around three sides of our house and is our warm-weather living room, ready for use. Washing the house down, scrubbing the porch floor, maybe sewing some new cushions and potting some flowers for around the perimeter. All of that says "spring" to me.

Wouldn't it be amazing to walk through a museum filled with nothing but beautiful projects made with Graphic 45 paper collections? Food for thought!!!

I love these projects! The papers are awesome!

Wow!! Fantastic projects! I love Andrews clock it so amazing!

Andrew's clock has given me ideas for decorating a cheese box and I've already got those papers: Thanks for the inspiration!

Gorgeous projects! :-D

What a fabulous gift this would be for a male in your life. Certainly worth the effort and expense. I love Andrew's designs.

Great work!

I love to make Easter baskets and bunting in the spring.

my goodness this project is awesome!

I really like the shadow box, reminds me of the clothes that my Mother wore back in the 40's. Have many beautiful pictures of her in styles like this.

Wonderful projects to share with everyone. Nice presentation team G45

Love the clock!!!

Love the projects! Thanks for another great giveaway Graphic 45, you guys are so generous!
Happy crafting!

What fabulous projects! I especially love Andrew's clock! Amazing!

What a great set of possibilities for creativity!

What a beautiful set of projects. The clock is wonderful.

I love the clock you created with the Typography paper. So amazing!

I love spring for all of the new life. I was really inspired by both the clock and the configuration box. I have had one sitting on my shelf for a while now I think it is time.

For spring I like to make anything that has to do with birds. Wouldn't a birdhouse made from Artisan Style be wonderful !!!

Amazing Projects! Thank you for the beautiful lines that showcase my Heritage photos and the mini albums I make!

First, this is an AWESOME project! Thanks so much for your inspiration!! I love altered art - especially beautiful spring colors!! Ahhhh.. heavenly!!
