Be Free. Be Free. Be Happy - Mixed Media

In my last post, I created a True Beauty Lies Within mixed media piece where I used a vintage woman. In this mixed media I used the same vintage woman, clock idea and vintage theme, using a different inspirational phrase. Couldn't help myself just like the vintage woman and phrase.
This time I used a real canvas. I painted Gesso over a painting that I made and ended not liking it (leave to us, to be our worst critic, right). I used a vintage looking scrapbooking paper as the background, to which I adhere Prima spiral bling. I also added an acrylic birdhouse and chandelier from Spare Parts (that's the brand name of the product). The vintage woman has a different lace design dress and headdress. Her necklace is painted using gold Stickles. I also used Stickles throughout her outfit and headdress, to accentuate her fabulous-ness.

Now for the clock. This time (no pun intended) I made the numbers out of polymer Sculpey clay. For the clock's background I used a red card stock paper and lace underneath the red paper. The center is a painted paper doily.  I used several types of Prima flowers. The tan flowers on the top side are made out fabric. The flowers on the bottom right are metal flowers from Spare Parts. I just love that contrast of metal, paper and fabric flowers surrounding the clock.
The phrase. I printed the phrase on paper made to look like linen (it really does, look closely). As for the frame, it made out lace. I surrounded the frame with miniature flowers from Spare Parts. The crown is a bronze necklace charm.
