Emma created dimension and layering to her circular panel by using Tim Holtz’s Industrial die, to die cut gears and cogs before combining them with two more of Tim’s dies, Timekeeper and Steampunk Parts to create the clock face which formed the main focal point of the project. As a finishing touch, she added a Paper Doll.
