Altered Time....

Wouldn't it be great to alter time to fit the things you want to accomplish?!! There never seems to be enough time in the day to do all those things I plan to do. Time is the theme for MMM this week, and I have chosen to share a clock which I have altered. I created this piece at the last crop I attended, hosted by Scrapbook Sisters, this was the class that they held during the day.

We were provided with an MDF clock base, a selection of cardstock and patterened papers and the rest was up to your imagination! I chose to use cream cardstock as the backing for mine on which I stamped a selection of images in Timber Brown Stazon. On top this I created a smaller square of brown cardstock and patterned papers I cut and tore into a pattern, I extended the swirls onto the background by using watercolour pencils and fineline pen.


To complete I added some stamped birds from one of the new Prima ranges and hand drew the larger version. These were added with foam pads to raise off the surface - careful to still allow the clock hands to move around!
