Altered Steampunk Clock
April DT project for Crafty Emblies
 
 I chose to alter a clock. Now this clock has gone through quite a transformation, as the original clock was only the top part and the face has been removed and replaced with a gorgeous CE wooden Roman Clock Face .
 
 
 
I added a wooden candle stick to the base to give the clock some height and, you can see the CE pocket watch, cameo and fancy cog there along with some Wild Orchid Craft Flowers, chains from my stash, Tim Holtz film strip, pen nib and light bulb from my stash as well.


. The paper is from Graphic 45, French Country, and Prima Lifetime Collection.

 

I also added another bulb from my stash to the top of the clock for even more height, along with some more gorgeous WOC aqua flowers.

 
 
 Here is a close up of more of the embellishments, the #8 is from Prima Engraver, as is the word "cherish".  the key and bird are from my stash, the hanging lantern is another Prima Piece.
 
And again, a full shot of the finished piece. The wings are also from CE, I altered them with the Prima paper and words, added chain to them and some tiny wood flowers with pearls in the centre.

 
Here you can see a close up of the  CE roman numerals which I altered slightly by covering them in foil tape, and the CE cogs and gears I used for the #10.....
