 Hello Everyone, I am here today to share an altered clock I have created using lots of Gina's Designs gorgeous pieces.  This clock is made from Paper-mâché and I have decorated it in a Shabby Chic style.  Now, unfortunately, this clock doesn't work, but that doesn't make it any less fun to have in your room!
I have used the Prima Lyric paper as the backdrop for the clock, and decorated the top with some lovely flowers and embellishments. I also fussy cut some of the images from the paper collection, as you will see in the photos.

 Inside the clock I have layered one of the Doilies from the Intricate Doily set, with a clock from the paper line, then some of Gina's clock hands. I cut up some of the Chicken Wire, then embossed and placed it around the hands of the clock.  I topped it off with a metal piece, which I  also embossed using a Shabby Pink Powder.
On the clock face itself, I added some metal numbers to finish the look.


 I have gone around the entire frame of the clock with some vintage peachy tan lace, added flowers, more fussy cut sentiments from the paper, and some metal numbers and clock face. I also used one of Gina's Birdcages, which I embossed with some Bronze embossing powder.


Above I have used some of Gina's new Texture Sheets in a Diamond pattern. I cut random shapes, distressed them and then embossed them using the same Bronze embossing powder as the birdcage. I love how it gives a fun mixed media look to the piece.
 I have also used one of Gina's new wood charms, which says Memories. I love all the new wood pieces in the store, this is just one of the gorgeous new pieces that are available.

 Here you can see the back of the clock, I have used masks and modeling paste all over the clock but you can really see it here. I decided to put a bit of paper embellishments on here just to give a more finished look to the back of the clock.


 Here I have placed one of my favorite pieces on the front of the clock to complete the Shabby chic look. I really love this chandelier, it is from the Parisian Shape set, which comes with lots of other fun pieces to play with.   I added more flowers and a charm to finish it off.
 
Thanks so much for taking the time today to look at my project.
