Mixed Media Texture Background Clock

I altered a Tim Holtz clock to enter to join in 13@rts 's challenge #56

The challenge is to create a background.
So I made a background with the closing lid of the clock.

The texture was made with modeling paste, adding various size of art stones and powder.
Stone powder clay parts as the main focal point.
On the top of it I used acrylic paints for the coloring and outlines.

The concept is a secret garden hiding under the rust or the old world which surrounding by
ancient plants.

The fun of this piece is , the background can be taken out anytime. So the "Secret garden" can be entered at your wish !
when it goes back to the clock part it is dark and hence a mysterious atmosphere.

Here is a process video fm start to finish.

I really had fun making this project and I thank you 13@rts team for the wonderful challenge theme !!
