I made this project for the CHA Authentique booth since I've used Authentique's 'Precious' line to make all the embellishments that decorate the clock. I wanted to use it as a frame for a photo taken at my son's first birthday photo session. I love this picture of my son--he looks just like a 'little man' in this one!
Once the gesso dried I applied a thick coat of Martha Stewart's Terra Cotta paint in White. This paint has a sand-like texture to it that I really liked. Next to give it a bit of color, I took a medium sized paint brush & randomly applied Mint Julip Pearlz from Shimmerz on it. Finally once it was all dry I applied a coat of Martha Stewart's Frost Paint which is a sort of sealant with a touch of glimmer to it. I love the effect the combination of all these mediums gave me!
With hot glue I adhered a string of mint green pearls around the front of my clock.
here if interested.
The inside of the clock is decorated with some frosty netting that I had in my stash. I believe I bought this netting around Christmas--the netting is frosty & covered in glitter--half of the glitter is still sitting on the floor of my scrap room! I scrunched up a bit of the netting & adhered it with some double sided sticky tape to the bottom of the clock. My photo is matted with papers from the 'Precious' line & I've added more spiral flowers along the bottom side of the photo to decorate it.
