Hi everyone Steph Ackerman here today with a fun little altered clock. I used some awesome Susan K Weckesser papers from the Live In Color Collection and, as we are partnering with UmWow Studio this month, I used some awesome chipboard elements.
I found this clock recently in my local craft store. Because it was missing some pieces, I was able to get it on clearance and modify it as I wanted!
I first painted the wood base with Art Anthology's Copper paint, then used some of Susan K Weckesser's Live in Color papers to cover the front and sides of the clock. I wanted a little of the painted wood to show, so I cut the papers slightly smaller than the wood panels.
The floral paper was perfect to adhere along the sides of the clock. I love how the flowers appear to be growing up the sides.
An assortment of flowers was added to the bottom corner of the clock with brads and glue dots.
I used some fun chipboard elements from Umwow Studio - a Swallow which I inked and then stamped with a phrase from Grandma's Needlepoint stamp set and several banners which I inked and added amongst the flowers.

I love how it turned out and wish I had a few more to alter!
Thanks for stopping by today.
