An upcycled clock



Barely-there-project

Hello there friends! Today's share is an upcycled clock for LESSology Challenge #20: Barely there. It's our last challenge for the year and the winner gets PaperMade Bakery's November kit! My upcycled glass clock features a photo of the nephews at the playground. Notice how "fake" the smiles are? That's what I get when I "force" them to pose...*LOL*


I cut a cardboard to fit the opening and then went a little crazy with the mediums and paints. You may notice that I don't really follow the "rules" when using boy photos...pink flowers? Go for it! *winks*


Here is the clock before the transformation. The clock "died" after fifteen years...

Supplies: Glass clock, Daler Rowney acrylic paints, Golden mediums, PearlEx, blooms.
