Creative Paperclay® Time Flies!!!

What I love most about Creative Paperclay® is... if I cannot find an embellishment for a project be it a card, assemblage, wall art I can always make it from Creative Paperclay®!

First create molds using mold putty from found objects then cast the Creative Paperclay® and allow to dry.  For this project I made: pocket watch, column and a frozen Charlotte.

Supplies:
Creative Paperclay®: molded Frozen Charlotte, column,
pocket watch
Molding Compound
Book - tools to cut pages
Tissue
Stamps:
   Viva Las Vegastamps! Eiffel Tower
   Viva Las Vegastamps! Tree
   Viva Las Vegastamps! Flying Bird
   Cavalini - Paris, stamped in clay
   Stampin UP Print Pattern
Stewart Superior Memories Black Ink
Stewart Superior Memories Mist Silver
Stewart Superior Memories Mist Iridescent
Versafine Olympia Green Ink
Memento Rich Cocoa Ink
Gold Paint
Paper Ephemera
Tim Holtz Letters
Tim Holtz - spinner and bradStickles
Tacky Glue
Fixtive
Embellishments: 
Dice with alphabet 
Doily
Clock faces
Plastic Eyelashes for wings

Believe it or not... this book is a found item. The pages had already been cut out when I found it!  Lucky for me.  The cut pages were wired together, which made it easy to work with. I white washed the back inside cover with a light coating of gesso, then spritzed with Stewart Superior  Memories Mist: Silver and Iridescent. 
Stamped background images on tissue and adhered to the back of the book.  
Adhere the pages to the back cover of the book and painted a little gesso around the outside edges of the pages.
The Creative Paperclay™ column was aged with brown ink, then place  in the window box. Stamped the border of the window box with the print pattern and added a bit of paper ephemera.
The Creative Paperclay® pocket watch was painted gold and the the clock faces and spinner with brad were added.
Final touch to the pocket watch are the plastic eye lashes for wings, adhere to book.  Distress the alpha dice with Memories Black Ink and adhere!
Add the bird on tissue to the border, a little bit of cut doily and the word "flies" using Tim Holtz letter.  Add a dash of blitz with Stickles on the doily.
Touch up with gold paint around the pages, a bit of gold distressing on the frame, Paris clay piece and my  Creative Paperclay® frozen Charlotte.
