Today I used a picture of my great nephew and my mom. Today is his 1st birthday and he loves his Aunt Momo as much as I love him. AKA ”Cookie, Cookie, Cookie!!” LOL Because he is always asking only me for cookies!!! My mom said he will only know me as the cookie lady. LOL
On to my Design Team project this week I altered a Tim Holtz Alarm Clock. Oh my gosh this was so much fun to play with. I so want to do more of these!!! I tore this thing apart so I could take the glass out of it…then I Painted the whole thing with gesso so that I could cover it using pattern paper and Tissue wrap. After I applied the papers using Multi Medium I used some Glimmer Mist splattered it in spots which I think makes the handle and feet look really old. Then took gesso back over in different places and Kind of highlighted areas. I think this might just be my favorite to date project!!! Suzanne does not have these in the store but you can ask her to special order them for you if you would like. Be sure to stop by Flamingo Scraps for all your crafting needs. She has some of the best stuff to get your creative juices flowing!! Hope you like my creation as much as I loved making it!!
First off I took the glass out of the front of the clock then I coated the clock with gesso, then I let that dry. I used multi medium and started putting on the Tim Holtz Tissue paper. Then I added strips of the Lifetime paper words page. Next I used Tattered Angels Mist...I chose light colors so that you could see the paper. I used the Tattered Angels Suede one so that it would give it the old rusted look. I also used Maya Road Vintage Jewel Rhinestone Trim – Iridescent Diamond around the outside of the clock.
I then covered the back of the clock and and then started decorating it. I used Prima Symphony Blend Amoroso Pink The picture of my mom and nephew is in a Studio Calico Wood Veneers — Sampler 1. With this I had to use chipboard to prop it up. By doing this I cut a small strip of chipboard bended it in half and applied glue to hold it up. I also added a Studio Calico Wood Veneer Cameras
Here is a side view using old chain that I had found in the garage. I used gesso on it. Then hung the Prima Vintage Trinkets Birdcage, Maya Road Metal Antique Music Box Keys and Owl on it.
On the other side I used Maya Road Chipboard Shipping Tag Set, Maya Road Bird Cage Wood Pieces and Prima Divine Cotton Lace – 1 Roll for the bow and a tiny pin to pin it to the lace.
For this I used the Prima Tiny Junkyard Findings Vintage Trinkets — Turns & Handles and a Prima Tiny Junkyard Findings Vintage Trinkets — Gears
I also used
Prima Chalk Ink Edgers — Entire Set of 48 Colors!!!-several different browns and blue for the bird inside of the cage.
