Well into double figures, what fun! This challenge is the Assemblage Clock. This was nearly the challenge too far as I didn't have a clock and when I ordered one they said the delivery date may be the end of September, however I managed to find one else where so I will have another one to do later....YAY!
Any excuse to buy more stash, I've even had to go to a certain Swedish store for more storage solutions. You can only put up with so many avalanches when you open a cupboard door!!!!
Hey Ho to work, Having just had my daughter Caitlins' 18th birthday I had lots of Alice in Wonderland stash spread over the workspace, (well I say space, think 12inches by 12 inches) so I thought rabbit holes, as you do, and this is what I came up with.
I prepared the clock using IndgoBlu English Cottage acrylic paint using brown for the outside of the clock case and bright red for the bells on the top. I then painted white spots onto the bells and...instant toadstools (for the caterpillar of course).
I didn't paint the handle as I covered it with ribbons and the small playing cards, the Queen of Hearts of course. The grass is some green card stock that I over inked with evergreen boughs distress ink and stuck to the front of the clock.
The decoupage sheets were from House of Zandra, the inside panel is Alice with the bottle saying Drink Me and the White Rabbit is on the outside.
To finish the project I added some roses made using the Tim Holtz tattered flower garland die and printed a banner, edged it with a little evergreen bough distress ink and attached it at a jaunty angle.
So far about half of the projects that I have made for the various challenges my daughter has said she is taking to University to decorate her room with, this will be one of them!
Many thanks to The Funkie Junkie for sponsoring this challenge and of course to the excellent Curiosity Crew for all their crafty inspirations. This has been a great challenge!
