I just love altering stuff.....
making something cheap and tacky look special.
I took the clock to pieces, removed the glass & clockface,
sanded the plastic so the glue had a rough surface to stick to.
I found some old designer paper in my stash that was nice, neutral and quite vintage looking.
I cut the pieces to size to fit all the sides, the clockface and photo appeture,
then stamped all over using memento ink with a french text stamp.
I then adhered the paper to all the sides and front.....
sanded the edges for a really neat finish, then inked lightly.
I made a new clockface,stamped, inked, numbers added with a metallic pen....
i also re-coloured the hands.
In the photo side i stamped a lovely face, (coloured her lightly with promarkers..)key and text....
then made some roses out of the paper off cuts.
I think this clock looks so much nicer now.... hope you do too.
