CC#3 Challenge #10 Assemblage Clock is found on page33 ... you know the drill ( if not ... I cannot give you any instructions ( neither can anybody else) you MUST purchase your own book ... so get your book follow along...
I have a funny story ... what you are about to see is not the clock I had planned ... same color but different design... WHAT ?? I painted my clock worked on all the components and all sorts of mishaps occurred... I was so frustrated I went with Plan B and to add insult to injury when I misted my clock I went to move it and the box I misted it in fell apart and the clock hit the floor ... you guessed it... the glass cracked ! It took me a few hours to recover but I'm fine now :)
I painted my clock with broken china crackle paint ( going for the vintage look) and I highlighted it with antique gold perfect pearls mist. For my inside I used Wallflower Paper Stash ( Tim Holtz) and
Butterfly Garden (Pink Paislee). I colorized my crinkle ribbon with broken china, tumble glass and weathered wood distress inks
I embellished my clock with baubles and pearls ( Tim Holtz) and butterfly pin (Pink Paislee); added lace from my Queendom stash.
Hope you enjoyed a view of my clock. I do hope you visit the Crew also check out the CC3 Challenge Community there are some amazing clocks out there !
Come back and see me again !
