This stunning clock was created by Ingrid Gooyer; a very talented lady with so much to share. Be sure to pop on over to her blog Ingrid’s Place for more inspiration. You will be so happy you took the time to do so!
Here is a full tutorial on how to make this absolutely divine clock.
The empty clock first gets a coat of Gesso.
Tear up some bits and pieces from the paper collection you want to use.
Randomly take the paper pieces and glue them onto the clock using Mod Podge.
Be sure to also glue paper pieces into the inside of the clock.
Using collections that coordinate together will make this such a fun masterpiece.
Paper clocks cut from patterned paper can be a fun extra touch to any project, and especially to this one.
Randomly add the paper clocks to the project.
Make some flowers for your clock using the flower die from Spellbinders.
These pretty flowers were made with a punch. Punch them three times and add a brad. Crumble them up and shape a flower.
Roll some of the pattern paper to use as an extra embellishment.
When the clock is dry it is ready to embellish.
Add in paper flowers and tuck in some white mesh in between the flowers.
Add some lace to one of the bells and also around the base of the clock.
Look into your jewelry box and find an old piece of jewelry to add to the clock. This is a piece of an old bracelet.
Add a favorite tulle flower to the side of the clock.
Add some fun chipboard pieces from the Dusty Attic, such as a key, butterfly, and a flourish.
Here is your final result!
I hope you have been inspired to create something that has been lying around and turn it into a beautiful masterpiece you will cherish and love.
