Grandpa Dave's hobby is fixing beautiful, old clocks. So when we discovered the amazing time piece in front of Orchestra Hall (Dave was there to watch grandson Aaron perform), I just had to get a photo and document Dave's craft.
I hit a creative block when it came time to make this layout - masculine pages can be difficult. But after seeing Kasia's wonderful layers video on KaiserCraft's blog, this page came together easily. I mostly used KaiserCraft's Factory 42 collection papers and collectables, but threw in papers from KaiserCraft's Barber Shoppe and 75 Cents collections and added some gems.
The intricate compasses (inspired by CE's mood board), chipboard pieces and clock flair button are from Creative Embellishments.
Gold thread was wrapped around the photo. I used Thickers for the title. The background is Dreamweaver's silver embossing paste applied with Tim Holtz's clock stencil.
