My sitting room clock had a reeeeeeeeally boring frame...so I made a new one :D
I have had this clock for a good few years now... I like it because I can change the face with the seasons, but it had a really naff thin miserly plastic frame, which broke. So I was left with the frameless clock, but it still works ...
So I decided to decorate a canvas and attach the clock to it. I took the clock apart so I could use the back board as a template...
but decided it would be better to stick the board straight onto the canvas to strengthen it when I have to cut the hole for the clock spindle to pass through.
I selected a long thin canvas because the clock sits between 2 windows on a narrow wall space.
I added the words "tick tock" and the numbers 1 to 9 with chip board to give some texture.
Then stared adding layers of paint using my own stencils
and then I saw this figure...sitting on the mossy wall...
holding the infant, taking time out to tell a story to the babe...
paying no heed to the passing of time.
Was determined to show you the depth of colour used, so stood on a chair to take this pic lol
And now a few close ups.
The sun decided to come out today, so I couldn't get a pic of the clock in situe(between 2 sunny windows), but hubby likes it so I'm happy.
*is feeling the need to decorate the whole house now* :D
Enjoy :D XXX
