Destiny and Dreams

Hello my friends I hope you are well. I am sharing a clock with you today and it is my entry to Hel's Sunday Challenge with the theme  'Dream'. Congratulations to Hels for reaching 300 blog challenges and for the fab candy prize for this weeks challenge.

I bought the clock from the local cheapie shop and I was going to just take the clock pieces out and make a frame. As the clock was sold  inside a picture I decided oh what the heck why not just cover it. So that's what I did.

Firstly I took the clock out of the picture and I used card from my stash to cover it. Then I stamped over it with one of Sheena's crackle stamps. Next I used a couple of stencils and inked through with Picked Raspberry, such a gorgeous colour, and used some paste as well. I used some flitter glue around the edge of the shape and added some flake over it. I also sprayed a few drops of golden mint shimmer in parts and inked with a bit of black soot distress ink. I made some flowers from the tattered flowers die and added some gold flakes and Victorian Velvet distress ink on the edges. The sentiment is made  from some personal  words, and edged around with black ink. I added some lace, a few ready made flowers by Hobby House, a few strands of card coloured with Walnut Stain ink and placed onto a piece of hessian. I added a vintage postcard and a little peg with a tiny flower shape on it. I also stamped a small 'Enjoy the Journey' Tim H  stamp at the bottom.

I hope you like it, take care and enjoy your weekend xxx
