My Clock!!!

Right O, now you must promise not to laugh. This is my clock!!

I finished it this afternoon. Instead of photos in the two squares, before joining the two pieces together, I decoupaged two pictures in both squares from 6 x 6 Webster's Pages, added rubons then Mod Podged over it all a few times then put the top layer on. After that I decorated to my heart's content. lol I used 6 x 6 Webster's Pages for the front too with an extra butterfly decoupaged on with a couple of rubon butterflies as well. The back of the clock is covered with 6 x 6 Webster's Pages too. It's a fact of life that I'm not a painter. Just ask my friends and my OH. I was only allowed to paint inside the pantry when we were building this house. When he saw what I'd done, I was excused from any more painting. pmsl

I'm not happy with what I used to attach the lace but it's too late now. Will know better next time. The saying under the clock face says "Blessed are those who can laugh at themselves, for they shall never cease to be amused". This describes me quite accurately I thought.
In the "Be Unique" square is a little egg timer charm which is so cute. A cluster of punched butterflies in the clock corner finished it off with punched branch leaves, pearls, roses, buds, gardenia and hat pin.
I'll be posting cards next, no more Off the Page projects for a while.

Why would we laugh - this is gorgeous!!!! The painting part is pretty funny though! My DH can't believe I can make such a mess when I paint a room - but can paint precise details when I folk art - must be some dastardly scheme of mine NOT to be allowed near a 4L paint pot - LOL
