Make it Manly: Vinyl Wall Hanging by Kathi

Kathi here today to share my "manly" project with you.

This is a wall decor. It was created using a vinyl saying, “The Man who says “It can’t be done” Should not interrupt the Woman Doing it” and was placed on a chalkboard painted board. I covered the edge of the frame with DCWV paper Tattered Time. Chipboard shapes added to the frame. 

On the lower left used a pocket watch die to create a flying pocket watch by Tim Holtz. Sprocket gears from Spellbinders and a propeller from Gina’s Designs attach to a large gear from Gina’s with a new ringed brad by Tim Holtz. Numbers by Sizzix was added to the pocket watch. Large wings from the steampunk collection was pained (using distress paint by Tim Holtz) then added to the back of the pocket watch. A gear train beneath the pocket watch which was done in copper, silver, gold, weathered wood & shabby shutters. 

Moving across to the lower right, an Antique bike was placed over a weathered clock by Tim Holtz, along with a top hat and a hour glass. To match the project the top hat was covered with the paper that matched the edge of the frame. 
Finishing off the top of the frame more gears were placed on the right side
