Smile - Mixed Media Layout ~ Creative Embellishments September Challenge

It is September 1st and time for a new Challenge on the Creative Embellishments Blog! There was so much to be inspired by in the inspiration picture this month and the challenge's 'twist' is to use a clock or something time related. The picture and the twist got me thinking about school (the 'open mind') and how fast time flies, so I decided to scrap a picture of my son who is "growing up too fast"! I can't believe he starts Grade 1 next week!
I've used Prima's Salvage District collection papers for this layout (along with a few tickets from the Archivist collection). The masked clocks were created using a Crafter's Workshop Stencil along with Prima's Art Basics Modelling Paste in Opaque Matte. I used watered-down Prima Art Alchemy Metallique Acrylic Paint in Gold Rush for the gold colour and splatters and watered-down black gesso for the black splatters. 
I used Creative Embellishments chipboard Clock Faces to embellish the layout, which I embossed with Stampendous Aged Black Embossing Enamel. For the title, I used the word "smile" (from the Happy Words Set) and painted it using Prima Art Alchemy Acrylic Paint in Gold Rush. Here are some close-ups and different angles so you can see all the details!
