Altered Fairy Belle Clock
Featuring Wood Laser Cut Fairies from
ScottiePorkChop on Ebay
 
 
Here is a project I am very excited about! This clock was a thrift store find from a couple of weeks ago, and it has literally transformed into something fun and beautiful!  It was a very dull dark green in colour originally, and I brightened it up using some white acrylic paint, and the Prima Fairy Belle paper, some vintage lace and goodies from my stash and some amazing wood laser cut Fairies from ScottiePorkChop on Ebay!
 
This is one of my most favorite paper lines and the wood fairies fit right in perfectly with it, they really added that touch that the clock needed, and also they give a 3D effect to make things stand out more as well.  I have also used some scrabble tiles to spell out the word Fairy, and used some vintage lace to string it along the front of the clock.

 
Here you can see a close up of the clock face. The words Fly, Pixie and Pink, inside the clock are also from ScottiePorkChop http://www.ebay.ca/sch/m.html?item=121104478617&ssPageName=STRK%3AMEWNX%3AIT&_ssn=scottieporkchop&_pgn=2&_skc=50&rt=nc
I just love how the add more interest and dimension to the piece

 
I have used the original clock hands that came with the clock and just added a bit of white gesso to add that shabby look to them. Inside the clock you can see some butterflies that I cut from the paper collection to appear as though they are in flight, and the word "fly" from ScottiePorkChop fit in perfectly here!

 
This little lady is flying around the top of the clock, her colours fit in perfectly with the shades I have used on the clock.

 
Here you can see one of the lovely vintage looking Fae cuddled up to the roman numerals VI, I just love her look!


 
Here is another lovely little lady standing on top of some vintage resin shutters (from Prima) isn't she beautiful?

 
Another Gorgeous little lady!
 
 

 
Here is the top of the clock, I used a ceramic cherub and large metal key. The flowers are all from Wild Orchid Crafts 

 
And finally another full view of the clock which stands 18 inches high.
