Compendium of Curiosities II–Challenge 9

This week Linda Ledbetter has challenged us to make use of the Pocket Watch as set out in Tim Holtz’s Compendium of Curiosities Volume II. Now I’m hoping that this qualifies, as it isn’t a proper Tim Holtz watch - I couldn’t get hold of one, and besides, Crafting Austerity measures are still in place. However, the technique is the same, so here goes…


The heart inside the watch is made from polymer clay using an Art Mould, brushed with mica powder; I added some watch parts and coiled wire for a Steampunk feel. I had hours of harmless amusement coiling wires with a coiling gizmo – it’s most relaxing!

For details of how to join in, visit Linda’s blog; this week Simon Says Stamp are sponsoring the challenge, too!

Loved everything about your creation, the leopard background just set off
the pretty red heart. I love polymer clay. It was a very ceratie touch in your piece.
