Take apart the Assemblage Clock. You may need needle nose pliers to help the process.
NOTE: I did the clock in two phases, using the holes as markers since the Embossing Ink is clear.
Please be very careful with this process, as the metal gets very hot.
After melting the embossing powder with a heat tool, cool completely.
Run your fingers over the embossed surface to the loosen the release crystals (that's why it's called Distress Embossing Powder).
NOTE: Because these are release crystals they should go into the trash not back in the jar.
NOTE: Again, I am choosing not to use the glass in this project so I will not be adding it back in.
I adhered 1/2 of a Foil Tape Sheet to a piece of paper. Then flipped it over, onto the Ironwork Gate Decorative Strip and ran it through the Vagabond machine to create a fence for the background.
Again, I used the back of the clock as a template.
It might be hard to see in the picture, but the bottom follows the curve of the clock and the top is straight. I adhered the fence to the plastic with Multi Medium, running it along the straight edge.
I used the Distress Spray Stain for the ribbon which is something new for me. I sprayed the Stain directly onto the Crinkle Ribbon using NO WATER at all, which caused some very unique patterns as the stain bled through the weave of the ribbon, almost like Ikat fabric.
Hope you enjoyed today's Media Team tutorial. I know I had a great time making it! I also hope that if you have never made an Assemblage Clock that this tutorial might give you some ideas for a fun piece to share with your family in October.
