Altered Clock

Hello Friends!
Tanvi here with another project for Lulupu Challenge#49. You will find all the details for this challenge in Manu's post Lulupu Challenge #49 : Feminine - Use wings & Colour Palette.

I have altered a Tim Holtz Assemblage Clock inspired by the colors from the pic & for the twist WINGS, I have a bird, butterflies & an angel!

To begin I removed the glass & back panel of the clock & generously primed the surface by sponging gesso (2-3 layers). This lends a grainy texture. After this I colored the clock with distress inks - mowed lawn & salty ocean. The MDF cut outs were coated with mowed lawn distress paint & glued as desired with glossy accents.

I used liquid pearls to add defintion to the frame of the clock as well as the MDF frame.

The little angel (wings) here is from G45 - Sweet Sentiments. The bird perched on the flourish is coated with black soot distress crackle paint.

Glued to the inside of the back panel is a colorful printout of a clock face. Hanging here is also a miniature bird house! I have glued a resin door (colored with vintage photo distress ink) too. A flower under the arch of the door keeps it open , welcoming one & all!

Hanging on one side of the clock bell is a cute wish bottle with a secret message & cute feminine charms.

Here are some close ups of the clock! 

Hope you enjoyed todays' project & if you did do leave some love!
Thanks for dropping by!
Happy Crafting!
