Try it on Tuesday has time for everyone

Still doing scheduled posts and sending apologies for not commenting on you projects but time is still not on my side unfortunately

Hi All and a warm welcome to Jumbled Crafts where today is the start of a new challenge at Try it on Tuesday. Thank you for visiting my blog and I hope you will join in the challenge.

The theme for the next two weeks is Time/Clocks so lots of things you can do for this challenge. If you can't think of anything then just visit TIOT and see what our wonderful team have made to inspire you. We would like to know a little about how you made your project as it so good to see everyone's ideas.

One of my friends collects pocket watches old and new. Sometimes they get broken or don't work so they end up in my craft stash. He loves to see what I make from them. I took this one apart and used the face and the workings as a separate piece from the case. The case has a picture of Marie Antoinette with lace and pearls with flowers. The clock face has pearls around the edge with a flower and lace in the centre. I used my glue gun to join them together. I added ribbon to the top to hang it up and a tassel to the bottom decorated with flowers.

This is another picture of it against a white wall.

Have a great day and don't forget to join us at the challenge.

Tag Tuesday have Steam Punk this time so maybe some of your projects, if they are tags with clocks, will fit in with both challenges

 This one is mixed media with printed digital background and cut out butterfly and metal embellishments
This one is digital.

Love Chrissie xx

  4. I love all three pieces you created for this post. I really LOVE the clock face with Marie. I can't believe your friend just GIVES you these old pocket watches. What a great friend, because you can't begin to imagine how expensive non-working ones are at thrift stores and auctions here in the states. Needless to say, I adore it, as well as the steampunk tags.

  5. Gorgeous projects Chrissie. I love how you altered the pocket watch, it looks awesome against both the backgrounds in your photos.
    The Steampunk pieces are also fantastic, its been a great post to read today.
