At Last! The Clock!



I have had this clock mostly done for several weeks now and finally put the finishing touches on it today. I bought this KaiserCraft clock kit from my LSS. They have a lot of really cute frame, shaped album, and clock kits. It comes with the pre-cut wooden parts and the clock parts. You decorate as desired! Here I used Good Morning Sunshine DP (SU retired), the bird chipboard (current SU catty), chipboard #'s and corner piece are not SU. I used acrylic paints to paint some of the chipboard and covered some with the DP. I used various buttons and ribbons(SU and PTI). The kiwi ribbon with the white polka dots is from the Pig Tales collection (SU retired). I never ordered it, so I put out a call for help on SCS and got some that way. I used Mod Podge to apply the DP. I used brown paint for the distressing.



Here is a detail of the ribbon and buttons. And of course my little angel-faced mischief-maker! Look at that gap across the front of her smile!












Here is a detail of the bird on the branch. I drew the veins on the leaves with a marker.


I am just so thrilled with how this turned out! Brad said "It's the best thing you've ever made." I don't know about that, but I love it and hope you do too. One thing I forgot to mention--the kit comes with an easel type stand, but I plan to hang it on the wall in my stamp room. Have a great day!

GASP, it takes my breath away so very CUTE. I love the DP and the birdie but the Pics along the side make it wonderful. Great job:) Have you seen anything like this at Mikes or Hobby Lobby? I am going to have to go searching.
