Altered clock

I love going to Thrift stores and find things I can make new again.  Last week I found this clock and had to have it

Snowflake Clock 

1)  Take Clock apart 

2)  Remove Clock hand and clock face 

3)  Spray using your Ebrush and Spectrum Noir BT7 on the outside of the glass - leaving the center clear.


4)  Spray center of glass with a Light color I used Spectrum Noir TB3 with my Ebrush 
5)  Add clock face and hand back on.  Love the way this turn out
6)  on the Front piece of glass I spray using the Dark Spectrum noir BT7 around the outside and then add snowflake stickers 

7)  The side of the clock is metal, and I spray that with my Ebrush (it's is amazing what you can do with your EBRUSH)  using Spectum Noir BT7
8)  Finish by putting your clock back together and enjoy.  I can't wait to display this at Christmas Time at my house.  

Thanks for enjoy my project

Blog Hop around the World

Last week I was apart of TWO blog post - and both of them featured me as the one they would like me to answer these four questions.  I am not good at this part, but here I go...

1) What am I working on: This is a hard on for me to answer, I always have something new going on, most of the time, something I have never tried before. I love to think out of the box in off the page. But presently I have the new Chemeleon Pens on my desk, so I have been playing with them alot

2) How does my work differ from others of its genre?
 I like to play with many different medium.  I am love to teach other

3) Why do I create what I do?
 It's a need... I need to create and I need more to teach other how to create

4) How does my creating process work? I'm a Thinker.... I think Think Think, then I create and pray they my project come out like it did in my head...LOL......
