This week at Out of a Hat Creations the theme is Clocks so lots of things you could chose to make if you join us in the challenge.
I bought this old clock last year at the car boot sale near to where I live. It only cost 50p and when I added a battery it worked and kept perfect time--what a surprise that was. I put it up on the wall in my craftroom until this challenge came 'out of the hat' then I thought it would be a good time to transform it.
Now is a Steampunkery Clock.
The first thing I did was cover the edge of the clock with aluminium tape then work in various inks to make it look like old metal. The wings and cog I stamped onto the tape as well using Chocolate Baroque stamps.
That done I could concentrate on the middle so I looked for the Roman numerals clock face on Google and printed it out to fit my clock. I cut a slit at the centre of the circle so that I could slip it in place-to cover the slit I added some Crafty Emblies Cogs and a rusty washer I found in the shed.
Quite a different clock now so all I need is to decorate the whole of the room in Steam Punk Style to match the clock.
Love Chrissie xx
