I chose The Oval from Simply Betty Stamps to do my project. I loved it so much I decided to make a clock out of it and hang it in my scrap room. The hands were a little dark so I put some Stickles on them. The cogs were sent to me by Ms. Kristy Deyette because she is the bestest friend evAH. She helps a girl out in a bind! Recollections has a paper pack called Steampunk Botanica now and I used a sheet of that for the background. If you look closely you can see a butterfly on the left of the woman. It also had the place for a picture where I cut out and my husband put the clockworks for me. The gray flower is Jolee’s Boutique and came from Michael’s. “The Oval Portrait” is a short story by Edgar Allan Poe involving the disturbing circumstances surrounding a portrait in a chateau.* I think that is one of the reasons I picked this particular digital image. Well, I picked it first and then found out the background later but I was definitely intrigued after I found out.
