Whatever! Mixed Media Canvas

I have finally done it!!  I have finished a mixed media canvas AND made a whatever/who cares clock! LOL

I originally saw a clock on the net just like this that said "who cares, I'm always late anyway"... too many letters so I used "whatever" instead :-)  As much as I hate it and can't stand being late - it's me, a single mum of three, my schedule is never my own and I am ALWAYS late! Now you know my secret!!!

and a closeup:
I used a cog stencil and texture paste; added alcohol ink; added distress inks; added stazon inks; added paint; added embossing powder; then some chipboard cogs, arrows, letters, and of course the numbers.
I was lucky to have a clear picture in my head of what I wanted so this actually only took a few hours - sped up by drying/heating with my heat gun - which added a few bubbles to the texture paste :-)
