Hello again.  Wow two posts in one month I think that is a record for me.
I have been struggling to figure out what I was going to do with Tim Holtz's altered clock.  I watched a ton of YouTube videos, checked out blogs and scoured sites looking for ideas.  Finally I decided on at least a color scheme.
My new bedroom color is a very cool green and I have some really colorful art above the bed.  So keeping with those red, green and orange colors I misted the heck out of the clock after coating it with two coats of gesso.  I used my fingers in the gesso to give some additional texture.

Here is a picture of that

Once I had that done I had to figure out what I wanted to do inside.  I played with the idea of a Prima door with some flowers and clock pieces but then thought of my PTI die that is a clock face/hands.  I thought this was perfect.  The only problem was it was too thin so going with the trends of today I cut it out four times then glued them together.  Here is what that looked like

Here is how they looked side by side before and after

That made it nice and thick.

After assembling those I decided to see how it looked on the clock inside back.

I really liked how that looked!  And then it was an accident that I found on my table this for the center of the clock hands and how cute does this look?

Did I mention that I got that cute little orange/peachy flower from this months card kit from Mary?  Perfect match!  Thanks Mary :)
So I started to put it all together.  Here is the finished product.  I have to apologize in advance as I used my Iphone to take my pictures and didn't notice you can see the reflection in the glass.

Thanks for stopping by!
