Time Flies – wall art

Here’s a piece of wall art I made, using a 3 x 3 mini canvas.

On the plain canvas I stamped black text using a rubber stamp. Then I covered it with a very thin piece of textured tissue paper.

I have a nice collection of watch faces that I knew one would work here.

For other embellishments I used silver wings made from paper, and some illustrated vintage roses. I got both of these items from the D Blumchen Company. They have really pretty cut outs of animals, insects and flowers.

I wanted something hanging off the bottom and I thought of the lovely spoon-handle charms I picked up at a craft fair a few years ago.

It was a gift for my sister-in-law. My mom helped me find something to fill in the hole in the middle of the watch face (not shown). We ended up using the head of a pearl-covered stick pin. We cut off the pin base with pliers and then glued the pearl in the hole with some hot glue.

We were all satisfied with it.
