Painted the frame with DecoArt Media Fluid Acrylics Quinacridone Gold and when dry....

 ..sealed with Media Matte Medium

Painted a layer of DecoArt Media Antiquing Cream Patina Green. When dry, wiped off a bit and sealed with Media Matte Medium again

Next i've painted a wash of DecoArt Media Fluid Acrylics Phthalo Blue and on top of that....

..a wash of DecoArt Media Fluid Acrylics Transparent Red Iron Oxide, to get a more *greenish* colour to match the paper

I've also applied a thin wash of Tranparent Red Iron Oxide on top of the paper for a more vintage look.

Stamping on rusty fabric with Archival Black, too

The wooden clock hands from Fernli Designs are painted with DecoArt Media Fluid Acrylics Metallic Gold

The paperline, stamps,gears, wooden spools and cabochons are bought via HSE 24 / LaBlanche

A finishing touch with DecoArt Metallic Lustre around the edges
