Time Brings All Things To Pass

Hi everyone!!!

I am back home after an amazing crafty weekend with friends. As sad as I was to leave and come home, it is nice to be back with the family and get back into a routine.

I didn't get a lot done at the retreat because I spend too much time talking and laughing, but I did manage to get a few things made while I was there.

I brought a Tim Holtz assemblage clock along with me and decided to play around with it and I have to say that I LOVE this clock!! I made a time themed one with spring colours and I like how it turned out.

Time Brings All Things To Pass
(the glass front made it a little difficult to photograph, so hopefully it looks okay)


A little info about the clock

- The inside of the clock is really deep. I adhered patterned paper circles over cardstock circles and then stacked them with foam adhesive (a lot of foam adhesive which earned me the award of the 'thickest' project at retreat lol!!) inside the clock to help bring the focal circle closer to the glass front.

- The biggest butterfly is adhered with a stack of foam adhesive layered on top of one another to make it look like its 'flying' inside the clock.

- All of the diecut pieces (leaves, sentiment banner, etc.) were cut out with patterned paper and thick cardstock and layered on top of one another for some dimension.

- the sentiment is from the Technique Tuesday 'Dear Time' stamp set. It is a perfect sentiment set for a clock project. ;-)

Now that I have made this one, I want to get a bunch more!! It comes apart super easy and there are so many great things you could do with it. It would make an awesome home decor gift for any holiday from Christmas to Easter. Or even a wedding or a baby themed clock! The possibilities are endless!!

If anyone has made one of these clocks, I would love to see it!!

Thanks so much for stopping by! I'll be back later this week to share a couple of cards I made this past weekend. ;-)
