Hey everyone! Happy Monday! I hope you all had a great weekend. We definitely had a good one celebrating Mother’s Day. It was good to enjoy the warm day outside bbq-ing. So for those that have been in my studio, they had seen my old clock that was given to my by my Sissy, at least 15 years ago. It was for my old scrap room and it was made of resin. It had the phrase “Time 2 Craft” on it and the face of the clock had all kinds of scissors, ribbon, glue, etc, all commemorating crafting. Well….it fell of the wall a couple of weeks ago and literally exploded into a bunch of pieces. I was heartbroken to say the least. So, rather then just buy any old clock to replace it, I knew I was going to have to create one. Larry, my husband, had just finished making one for his wood working shop, aka the garage, and had an extra circle of wood laying there…so, like any good crafter, I knew that was my prize! lol
I painted the entire front with white acrylic paint. Since I have several other decor pieces on the walls with this piece of DSP, it was only natural to use it again. I cut out a 6″ circle with my Cricut to add to the center of the clock. Over the white paint, I added some Robin Egg’s Blue paint by Craft Smart that is a shade darker then the walls in my studio. Once that was dry, I added some Mod Podge to the DSP, then laid it in the center of the clock and added more over the entire top of the clock. To give is some bling, while the Mod Podge was wet, I sprinkled on some of the retiring Dazzling Diamonds glitter. Once that was dry, I cut out the words in a navy blue vinyl with my Cricut and added them to the clock. The clock mechanism came with gold looking numbers, but they just didn’t look right nor would they stick to the clock now that I had glitter on it. So I cut out the numbers in the same vinyl. I added some more Mod Podge over the numbers to seal them in and sprinkled on some more glitter.
Then this morning my husband added the clock mechanism and hung it on the wall! I absolutely love it! It may not be perfectly centered, but it looks really cute to me!! What do you think? And what a great way to use up that DSP!!!
Thank you for stopping by and I hope you’ll come back tomorrow for another CASE-ing Tuesday.
