Tick Tock, Time for...

Hello everyone!

I'm back again with another project!  I was so excited when I was invited to be a guest designer at Top Tip Tuesday that I guess I got a little overzealous and I made two projects!  The theme this fortnight is anything but a card.  The talented DT have come up with some beautiful projects, so please pop over to check them out.  I hope you are able to join in!

For my second project, I created a clock for my crafting room.  Sometimes I get a little carried away and stay up a little late crafting, so now I have no excuses!  We'll see how it goes... 
Supplies:

Clock - paper mache box, clock parts (movement and needles available at Lee Valley )
Paper - 300g hot pressed watercolour paper, basic grey dp
Stamps - Magnolia
Ink - Images where stamped with black stazon and coloured with Distress ink (antique linen, walnut stain, bundled sage, pumice stone, tumbled glass and black soot)
Other - box was painted green to match the dp, flowers are from pretty petals and where inked with antique linen, ribbon, lace from Kaiser, large wood beads for feet (which where painted white with watered down acrylic paint), Stampin up antique brads, and finally the clock face - I could not find one that I both liked and that was the right size, so this one is computer generated, printed onto acetate and layered in front of the image.

Here are a few more angles:



I would like to enter my clock in the following challenges:

Magnolia Down Under - anything but a card
Magnolia-licious Highlights - lots of luscious lace bloghop
Scrapbooker's Paradise Playing in Paradise Challenge - Fabulous Flowers
Simply Magnolia - Use two image stamps
ABC Challenge - N for neutral

Thanks for visiting and for taking the time to leave a comment!  I appreciate all your comments and love to visit you back!

Enjoy the rest of your week!

Hugs,

Dawn

Dawn...WOW!!! My apologies for taking so long to get over here, but now that I am...WOW (again). Your clock is spectacular and I have had the best time admiring it. I doubt it would be much help in getting me out of bed. Something that cute on my nightstand would cause me to stay under the covers and just admire it! :D
So happy you joined us this time around for the GDT spot at Top Tip Tuesday. It's been a pleasure admiring your creativity.
Hugs to you,
Lisa xx
