Tim Holtz Clock Assemblage

I finally made the "time" to participate in one of the Compendium of Curiosities Challenges!  When I saw a short video of all the contributors samples on Facebook via Miss Linda Ledbetter, I just knew I had to join in the fun.

This baby was tricky to photograph for sure, so I took it outside for a decent shot.

I used some resin coated tissue paper and embossed scraps from Tim that I had on hand from another project.  Never throw away those scraps, you just never know when you may "need" them!

Here you can see how crusty and grungy I made the outside of the clock.  I used layers and layers of colors and product.  

Since it is so hard to see inside with the reflection, I took a picture of the base outside of the clock.  Lots of funTim Holtz goodies inside!

Don't forget to check out this week's sponsor The Funkie Junkie Boutique for lots of good product as well!

  9. Amazing clock, Rhea. I would love to know more details on the technique of your clock's exterior. I love how you used the industrial stickers around the clock's front. Excellent job!

  10. Rhea...Love your clock! I've never see one with Tim's borders used around the clock face and I really like that! The finish you've given to your clock exterior is wonderful!
