I used Tim Holtz Vintage Photo on the Cogs & Circle, then inked the edges. I then glued the cog on to a piece of paper & applied a thick coat of rock candy crackle, & when that dried I used a paint brush & applied some TA Chalkboard (decadence to bring out the cracks. I used Tim Holtz adirondack alcohol ink (sunset orange) on the steampunk clock face & leaves. I also applied rock candy crackle on to the leaves & when that dried I played with different colors of chalk to get the color I wanted……31a4aed2-6af1-4f13-8caa-a6f97bc2d200_zpsc6246437

The bottom photo is where I put my Title (Autumn). I first stained it with vintage photo stain,then I applied crackle, & when that dried I rubbed in different shades of brown & inked the edges. I also watered down vintage photo stain and applied it to all the paper to deepen the color….e1b5bb86-d363-44f1-86bc-fc7f5265663a_zpsf2d32436
