Wake up,wake up everyone . . . it`s time to start creating your day!

 It`s Tracy here today with a little funky altered art project to share with you all.
This is how this little project started off -
Kind of sad, but not for long after using a little Susan K Weckesser  Live, Love, Create double sided paper for the background.
 Followed by a quick smudge of white acrylic paint to give a slight whimsical feel and a little cutting up of the beautiful Live in Colour tags.
I also added a little Stamp n Stuff clear embossing powder to add a little shine.
It`s a rather grey day here in Scotland, so I made a little sunshine to brighten my day with a stamp from
A quick forage in the garden to pick some twigs for that homegrown fence, fixed in place with Rangers Glossy Accents.
The logs are burning in the hearth and the smoke is flying out the chimney with the help of a little more Smooch . . . I loooove smooch!
Stamp out the sentiment Create Your Day and with a fine Black liner pen add a little stitching and detail to all the elements.
My attention then turned to the casing.
I popped on a coat of Tim Holtz Adirondack Alcohol ink, Sail Boat Blue using the alcohol ink applicator tool and felt.
Then I added a little Sunshine Yellow and Red Pepper alcohol ink, tapping with the applicator tool until I was happy with the result.
  To finish the clock I used a small pokey tool and made three holes on the left hand side, attached Tim Holtz Idea-ology mini gears sprockets to some rusty wire, fixed in place with a hot glue gun.
 Finishing with the sentiment
"Don`t go through life, grow through life" 
 I hope you have enjoyed my wake up,wake up project today and hopefully I have inspired you to have a go yourself!
The Christmas Love Campaign tag challenge has been extended to the 27th and if that`s not enough
 Rhona Designs also has a challenge up... woohoo!
Go check it out we would love to see what you create and sharing some love.
Till next time
