Altered Clock

Hey crafters
You know sometimes when you know you want to make something but you don"t really know what to make??  Well thats how I was feeling so I decided to gather together a whole bunch of crafty supplies from Faith Pocock Craft Studio Ltd and a clock that I got at the thrift shop and just got to it.

I decided to take the clock apart but when I was looking at the dismantled clock on my table I got a bit worried I had done something terribly wrong lol.

I managed to get the clock back together without the insides (whew) and then I used my alcohol ink to color the clock. I then used some sand paper to bring back some of the color underneath.  I thought it needed something else so with my fingertip I rubbed some silver paint over parts and it really looked great on the raised parts.

Below you can see that I lay some pattern paper down and went about adhering some cogs from Faiths store.  I used alcohol ink on some of them and the glue I used was E6000.  The wood icon I used was from the Epiphany collection. I used a Prima flower I colored with alcohol ink and silver paint and a couple of resin roses and a wee bottle with some tiny pearls in it.

After fitting the back onto the clock and gluing the and the plastic front I could then embellish the front.

Using E6000 again I adhered some silver chain around the rim and a couple of clogs.  I linked some chain from the top of the clock to a key that I i stuck onto the cogs.

I hope this has inspired you to gather all your crafty bits together and get your craft on.
