Altered Clock-Creative Embellishments

Oct 26, 2015

Its Oct 26th, and I am up on the Creative Embellishments blog today and i have an altered clock to share with you.  

One of the things i absolutely love about Creative Embellishments Chipboard is how versatile it is.  You can keep it simple and use it on cards and tags, or you can completely change the look just by using some mixed media.

Here is an altered clock i designed using a Tim Holtz Assemblage clock.  It first started out like this


after a few hours, i turned it into this

The chipboard looks fabulous on this piece and the photos do not even begin to give this beauty the justice i feel it deserves ( wink)

the clock to begin was gessoed with black gesso.  I added some texture paste to the gesso and i then set it aside to dry.  While it was drying i gessoesd all the chipboard with black gesso, heat set to dry, misted with gold glimmer mist; added some Gold Lumiere, and then for small texture i dabbed my embossing pen across areas and heat set with gold embossing powder.  

The clock face, hands, flourish, and word were perfect for this project.


this is seriously one of my most favorite projects i have done using the clock and i know i will be doing more in my future.


If i felt there was too much gold, i went back and washed a bit of black gesso randomly to add depth and shadows.  To make sure all layers were secure i used my got glue gun and depending on the angles, you can see a bit of the hot glue, package said dries clear, (ha) 

i added some prima beads and some prills for added texture. 

This is truly a piece where time will ultimately stand still.  
Until Next Time: Happy Scrapping
