Altered Clock

I had picked up a clock in an emporium-type store a month or so ago and have been itching to alter it.


I mean …. how could I not ??

After seeing a few altered frames/clocks etc on friend’s blogs and on Pintrest (of course, lol) it was the great Prima Live show by Trina McClune that set my mind racing.  You can see the recording of the show here.

I removed the inner clock face and workings along withe the glass, leaving me a fantastic, deep, distressed frame to play with.  and here is the result of around 2 1/2 hours in my craft room last night.


Here is a closer photo showing a bit more detail.  My mother does tatting – an almost lost art of lace making with thread and a wee shuttle and the white lace is some that she has made for me.  The paper I used was Websters Pages and the various flowers are from Prima.  The resin Eifel Tower came from Typo and the Butterfly from a lone pack that I found at The Warehouse.  The photo was taken by Duo Photography at a shoot we did last November.

Thanks for taking a look – I would love to know what you think.
