Vintage Clock

Vintage Clock

Hello all,

Today is one of my creative days, showing you a multi media clock I have created with Robin's Nest Products.  Of Course!  I love Robin's Nest Products!
 Our clock is created from a wooden round, I have glued black and white paisley cs, and black with silver Fleur cs to the front of the round.  The edges I have painted with 2 yellow colors, first with a light yellow, then a ochre yellow to give the yellow edge depth.
 On the edge of the painted yellow edge, I glued yellow dew and tear drops, alternating each shape. I kind of looks like a great big daisy on the edge.  Also at each number (cut out by my cute daughter-in-law Tara) I added a punched Fleur de lis, punched from Honeycomb Fleur Linen Cs, and on the top of this punched Fleur is a tan colored 4mm dd.  
 Light Ale 6mm dew drops were added to the paisley cs, and a few glitter die cut daisies.  The large honeycomb cut out Fleur is cut from the honeycomb Fleur linen cs.
 I used an older Robin's Nest linen paper, Fleur in black, for the leaf on the left side, then covering it is a trio of cut out clocks, these were cut from the B&W Clock Cs.  On the Clock arm is a circle punched from the glitter black chipboard, glued on it is a Large clear dew drop, and on to of that dd is a 6mm light ale dd. 
The cut clocks add some fun texture to this  clock.  Enjoy, 

Hope you are inspired to make a vintage clock for your home!
