Botanical Tea... An Altered Clock...

On one particular day when I was teaching at The Art Republic, I noticed the clock we had in our studio has a torn face... Not very eye pleasing but still able to accept it to a certain extend... However, when I'm back for my another teaching session, almost half of the face was gone... Hmmm... This started to irritate me quite a bit... So... It finally reached a stage it really irks me, I decided to do something to the clock... 

The clock in the studio that I decided to alter it...

In conjunction with the Craft Hoarders Anonymous Challenge, I altered the clock using mint, chocolate and latte acrylic paints together with Graphic 45 Botanical Tea paper collection, creating a peppermint vintage look... Oh hmmmm... Minty-baked from oven... How yummy is this??

The revived altered clock...

Closer look at the details... Notice a lady having tea in the pool of roses?

The peppermint weather-look... Yummy!!

Hands of the clock... Hello Friend!!!

Oh my giddy aunt! You had me at altered clock, but then when I zoomed in to look at all the luscious details of this fabulous art piece, you gave me palpitations! The detail, the amazing fussy cutting, the awesome weathered finish and the whimsical touches (love the tea drinking lady!) just stole my heart! Absolutely fabulous, my dear! Thanks for playing along in Craft Hoarders Anonymous Challenge #3!

I saw your project at Craft Hoarders and just had to link across to take a look. WOW... this is just so fabulous. I really love your choice of papers (I love Graphic 45 and enjoy seeing what people do with it!)
Never altered a clock before but you've got my mind "ticking" over about the possibilities. Thanks for sharing your gorgeous work.

This is an amazing transformation! I love when people can take "junk" and make something wonderful out of it! In America, we are so quick to throw things away and buy new. I just love recycling and upcycling things! This turned out BEAUTIFUL! Thanks for joining us at Craft Hoarders Anonymous!

This A.M.A.Z.I.N.G. WOW! Love the transformation you gave this clock!! Don't know what it looked like before you stripped it down, but it is a work of art now! Favorite parts are the paint job and the hands, but it's all FAB!! Thanks for joining us and sharing your style at Craft Hoarders Anonymous!
