And I am entering this project on the Craft Hoarders Anonymous Challenge Blog: Challenge #21-Celebrate the Season.
I began my project with their rustic wood ledge. It is quite rough, but instead of sanding it, I covered it with a good, thick coat of white gesso. I wanted to maintain the texture without getting splinters.
Clock Die Cuts together for extra thickness.
Put clock parts together and adhere wooden snowflake clock onto box at the top, just above the two dowels. Adhere glittered snowflake to pendulum, and three rusty metal snowflakes to inside box.
Clock Die Cuts, cover with Versamark ink, and heat emboss with a rust embossing powder. The photo shows the one on the left "rusted".
Another look from the front and side! I really love how this turned out.
