Altered Clock

At Eclectic Paperie the altered challenge is clocks(can you see my stress building) LOL. So here I am still working on my redo of my craft room and what do I find on a shelf in the closet? You guessed it an old kitchen clock. It must be fate. My mind was going crazy what kind of clock would I like to make ..... Bob of course said Steampunk. As you can see I vetoed that one. I thought this one would be perfect for either grand daughter but I just may keep it. I have several close ups and the before picture to arrange in blogger if possible. Then I will list my supplies. I hope you sit back and enjoy.
Krylon spray paint (coat one on the clock)
Tim Holtz White Picket Fence crackle(coat two)
Tim Holtz Weather Wood Stain(coat three) and yes I waited for all three coats to dry many late nights LOL.
Krylon Sealer(coat four)
All the flowers used are Spare Parts from Hobby Lobby
The crystals are Prima
The string of pearls are from Jo Ann's jewelry making department
The feet are drawer pulls from Hobby Lobby
The postage image is from Whimsy Stamps
For the inside
My dp is from my scrapbooking stash.
Stencils   Reverse Chicken Wire TCW  and Brick Wall Studio 490
Numbers are Spare Parts
Spelbinders die for book
Little Fairy, Toadstool and the Fairy House are from Livonia Stamps
Large fairy stamp is from a clear set and the script stamp were both purchased at Michaels
Sentiment stamp is from Great Impressions
Lace is from Jo Ann's
Inks are Tim Holtz Faded Jeans and Memento London Fog
I think that is everything.
This was really alot of fun I hope you all enjoyed the pictures. Have a great day.

Oh your altered clock is absolutely beautiful. Love the light blue color tone and LOVE the flowers. Awesome idea to add the knobs for feet. Wonderful job. Sooooo much prettier than the original version! Thank you so much for playing along with the eTeam in our challenge.

oh my, you must keep this beauty for yourself in your craft room. I remember those ivy clocks, lol.
What a beautiful job you did on this. I love each and every element you used to create this. That crackle finish may be my fave thing though along with the stenciling on the inside.
Good luck in the challenge.
Sorry I haven't been by much, just not blogging as much at the moment, sure you know how that is.
