Altered Vintage Clock

Helloooooo Everyone,

I am soooooo uber excited to share my project with you today.  I love 3D projects and I think this one just has to be my favourite so far.  The clock is a station clock and is actually double sided.

The theme this week is "Numbers" and just perfect for my clock................

I painted over the metalwork with white gesso and  added some aged rose frantage.  You may recognise the paper on the inside of the clock as being MayaDesign Autumn Basics  II.  I used the fabulous Mini Roman Numerals that Sandy has in store which really enhanced the dimension, even the paper couldn't have been a better match with the little clock on the left.

The image is called Puppy Love by Little Darlings Rubber Stamps.  I added some flower spray, rose buds, 30mm wild rose in dusky pink, hortesanias, cheese cloth and a prima embellishment.  I also added leaves using the Marianne Design Swirl Leaves die.

Did you notice the lace beads ion the inside.  I airbrushed  them with my copic marker E43 to make them cream and stuck them to the inside perimeter of the clock.

On the top you will notice the flower arrangement, this time including a beaded berry and cascading down the right hand side some 2mm string pearls and also the 3mm and 5mm cream string pearls.  You can also see on the top left a PionDesign butterfly from the Studio of Memories cut out sheet and finished with a range pen nib.

All the way around the outside of the clock I have used the cream tulle, so shabby and perfect for my clock.  The sentiment stuck to the metal framework was pretty apt, "A Time Forever Etched in our hearts and memories", sums up time and a clock pretty well I think.  This was cut from the MayaDesign Autumn Vintage Basics XX sheet.

On the top right you will also see a little prima trinket with the word inspire.  Sandy doesn't have this exact one in store but you might want to check out the ones she does have HERE. Always worth having in your stash as they come in handy for that little extra something.

The cogs that I added next to the numbers II and III have been coated in white picket fence crackle paint.

I really hope I have inspired you to do something different.

Have a good week.

Hugs Tracy
