Hi there friends!
I'm so excited about this post because I've finally gotten a video tutorial up! It's only just a short one on background techniques, but I had so much fun doing it. This time, I've tied it in with a double challenge from Scrap Around the World and 13 Arts.
I love the grey and blue skies, as well as a tinge of peach in the colors. The gangway to the lighthouse, bunting and jute cord give such a rustic feel which made me pull out a photo of an old jetty from Georgetown in Penang, which is an UNESCO heritage site.
And the sketch from 13 Arts:
The rule is to use the word "Time" in the layout and also to use one medium.
This is my take on it:
A little history of this place. The jetty is one of many along the coast named the Clan Jetties. Each jetty is inhabited by an entire clan with the same surname like Tan, Lim, Ong etc. It's a piece from the past nested amongst the rich colonial backdrop of Georgetown, in the fast-developing state of Penang, Malaysia. Look at the skyline, and you see the old and new juxtaposed together. Hence the title, "Lost in Time".
Some close ups:
I rested the photo on a piece of Shabby brick bit, which I embossed with distress EP from Blue Fern Studios and another piece from Film strips which I used Lindy's Stamp Gang's EP for embossing.
A metal clock trinket which I painted with some patina paints for an aged look.
Some metal gears from Tim Holtz which I treated the same as the metal clock.
The doily bunting from BFS which I snipped into half, brushed with gesso and painted over and stamped randomly.
