Timeless past wall hanger

 This project made TOP 3 on Unique Crafter Challenge- thanks
This Mixed Media piece was made for my spotlighting in Wow Embossing Powders blog team post

I used 7 Gypsies  recyled book covers from old and ugly projects- 2 mediums and one bigger for the middle part, made holes and connected them with some recycled twine and added this 7 Gypsies metal handle
Then I used some 7 Gypsies journaling cards and made a lot of texture with Tando Creative masks and Wow Embossing powders: Suzy West Cotton Candy, Metallic Copper, ,,,,,,,,
I also stamped with Wow stamps Gratitude set.

 This flower was made from some synthetic lace  sent to me by Jen, our Team leader, I cut out 2 flowers, covered  them with Clear embossing ink and Wow Candy Cotton and Copper  embossing powders and then heated, and it shrinked and made this gorgeous flower and I also added 7 Gypsies clock handle and Handmade Halo brass clock charm


Then this huge Tando chipboard clock was covered with inks and powders to this vintage look. I used another Tando mask for the copper embossed dots here

The lower part was made a bit more colorful: I added a Halo glass pebble- with clock on it and some Halo  resin flowers in the same colors as my embossing powders and used the clock mask with molding paste and then heat embossed with Cotton Candy powder again.

The swirl chipboard is A2Z Scraplets piece covered with some glitter over a pink paint
Hope you like this altered piece as much as I do.
I enter this to some web challenges:
Distress for Paper Play 
Anything goes for Simon Says stamp and show
Masking- lot of it here- for Frilly and Funkie
Lace or trim- lot of lace on the bottom- for Inky Impressions 
Recycled- book covers and twine and made flower from a piece of old fabric- anything goes and plastic (flowers) for Recycle. repurpose , reinvent 
Ribbons and fibers for Unique Crafters challenge 
Use fabric for Craft room- my big flower on the top part is old fabric one, shrinked with heat embossing over it.
