Time waits for no one

Halloween is the perfect time for rust and patina.  This Tim Holtz clock was rusted up using Ten Seconds Patina paints.  
The plastic angel was painted using the same paints, but a different patina.  This is a copper patina finish.  The angel was some type of cheap candle holder.  I snapped the angel off the base and painted her all over.  She has tiny wings, but I wanted big wings.  I grabbed these Melissa Frances wings that I have been saving for just the right project.  I used layers of distress ink to color them.  They are hooked right onto the original wings and glued in place.  
The flowers are all either dyed with Distress sprays or inked with Distress inks to age them.  The tulle is ripped and singed with my heat gun.  Heating the tulle makes it melt and curl.  
Lots of moss and tulle are tucked all around the angel.  
Remember time waits for no one.
What have you been crafting?
