Wallflower Assemblage Clock.

Hi Guys, Karen here with you again on this wonderful Wednesday to share with you my second guest DT project.
This week I have a Tim Holtz Assemblage clock to share with you.
  I started off by altering my clock base using Antique Linen distress paint. I painted the whole of the clock, and allowed it to nearly dry all the way, and the rubbed the clock with a soft dry cloth to remove the small amounts of still damp paint  to achieve a distressed finish.. have to say I love how it turned out!

Next I chose my papers that I was going to use from the Tim Holtz Wallflower paper stash.. I have to say I absolutely adore this paper pad, and have a hard time choosing which papers to use, as I think they are all awesome!  After I chose my papers, I cut a strip approx. 2  1/2 inches wide to line the inside of the clock and traced around the back of the clock onto my chosen background piece, cut it out and inked the edges, to form the background base for the face of my clock. I then added in some remnant rubs, a distress ink reinker coloured woodlands tree and a couple of fussy cut butterflies to finished of my background. I cut some of the bristles off the back of the woodlands tree to flatten it  and kept these aside to add in later.  


I then die cut some glassine paper and a piece of the wallflower paper with the Tim Holtz Tattered floral die ( using the two smallest flowers)  and made some flowers to add into my clock. I also fussy cut a bird from another piece of wallflower paper, I adhered these to the left hand side of the inside of the clock and added in some of the pieces I had cut off the back of my woodlands tree.


 As a final touch I added a bow made of coloured crinkle ribbon and some baubles and trinkets to the top of the clock. and I was done.




There are so many possibilities that come to mind when I look at these assemblage clocks I hope you find a little inspiration in mine.
Thanks so much for stopping by today, Until next week.. Happy Creating!!

So shabby and so fun. I love your paint wash on the outside of the clock. Fantastic job layering inside too.
