Faery Ink Inspirational - Clockwork Cupids

I am really excited to share Clockwork Cupids from Faery Ink as my inspiration, this time I have created a mixed media page.  I bought a child’s hardboard book from a charity shop and covered the first page with white gesso to help adhere the papers because it was quite shiny.   The image is coloured with alcohol markers and metallic gelly roll pens.  I added glossy accents to the clocks & the eye glass.  This is the first page of my mixed media book.   The papers are from my stash I have edged them with distress inks and added some stamped images.  The music sheet was a free printable from The Old Design Shop which I distressed by tearing and inking it.

The charms are from stash, The wooden clock is from The Works.  The stamped wings is from the Visible Image Time After Time set.  The feathers are cut from mirri card using Noor! Design dies. The butterfly is cut & foiled using the TODO, I won some bits and pieces from Mel Heaton who was demoing the TODO on C&C.  I'm saving up for one of these. 

Creative Blessings.  x
