★ Wise Men Still Seek Him- Cross Promotion

Hello everyone, so here is my third and final project for the Cross Promotion between Heartfelt Creations and Creative Embellishments.  I have always wanted to make an altered Christmas Clock being i had a few of the Tim Holtz Assemblage Clocks around, i thought it would make a great starting point and here is what i came up with.

that is the Antique Clock Chipboard piece that is backed onto the Bethlehem Scene from the Christmas Card Collection. The sentiment i did on my printer using the Great Vibes Font. I am thrilled at how this turned out and am turning this project into a class here in my home.


here are some more details of this altered clock, i have to say even thought it took me an entire afternoon to get it all primed, and misted and together it is a fabulous piece.

Happy Scrapping!

  6. I saw this on FB and wanted to come peek at it. It is so pretty. I was studying it because your work has such a....soft, airbrushed quality to it. That is not correct, but I cannot describe it... So lovely. Calming. Anyway, I just love this particular piece!
