Hello to all! I have some fun news today. I'm thrilled to be hosting the Frilly and Funkie challenge for my very first time! The mission is to create a project using clocks and time as your theme. The winner will earn a Guest DT spot at Frilly and Funkie, and everyone who enters will have the chance to win a $25 spending spree at The Funkie Junkie Boutique! Hop on over to visit the Frilly and Funkie Challenge Blog for all the details.
I adore vintage clocks, so I immersed myself in altering one of the Tim Holtz Ideaology Assemblage clocks. In case you have questions about the supplies I used I'll leave a full list at the bottom of this post. I'll start off by giving you a tour of my garden.
Tread carefully now, for we have entered into an extraordinary place. This hidden garden is sanctuary to many creatures, including a little bird who has chosen it as a refuge in which to nurture her young. If you peek inside you can just make out her tiny home nestled among the foliage and roses. Spend a few moments breathing in the fragrance of the blooms and relishing the feel of the cool, moss covered earth beneath your feet. Perhaps, if we are very still and very silent, we will gain the trust of the inhabitants as this gentle girl has...
I created quite a few handmade roses, leaves, and vines from gorgeous Maja papers to embellish the interior and exterior of my clock. The sweet vintage girl is a free image from Janet K. Designs. Everything seemed to fall right into place. There are many collage elements inside the clock that are not visible in the pictures. I tried to give you a better view of them but it was super hard to get the photos.
Other Supplies: Tim Holtz; Paper Stash Wallflower, Alterations Clock, and Ephemera Pack Thrift Shop. Magnolia Rose Leaf die, Impression Obsession branch die, free vintage image by Janet K. Designs, tiny plastic eggs from stash, real bird nest and natural moss. Sentiment is computer generated.
