Tick Tock its nearly 12 o'clock


Steampunk Spells Clock - Graphic 45 
I couldn't resist having a go at an altered clock using the amazing balloons from the new Steampunk Spells collection thats just come out.  I decided to work with just two colours on this project, a clock face using one of  Robs MDF blanks.

The face is painted with Paper Artsy chalk acrylics, they're fabulous to work with (details of which ones I used are below), and then masked and subtly over stamped the painted surface with brick wall effect and script text.  

Next I cut out a few balloons, (they're just gorgeous and so detailed), flowers and clock faces from the new Steampunk Spells paper collection by G45 and some Alterations and movers and shapers cogs and a key that I sprayed with bronze and turquoise glimmer mists to give them a rusty sheen.  I arranged them all and stuck them in place with tacky glue.  The larger balloon is raised up on foam dots but is low enough for the hands to go round.

The numbers and edge are coloured with a dark brown copic chio pen to make them really stand out. 





I love how this came out and now have it hanging in the fire place for all to see lol!!!!  as if there isn't enough about the house already ..........!!!!
