Something different

Good morning, today I'm showing you something I've been working on for a few days. I've long wanted to decorate a clock but I found the postage of the items needed added up to more than the clock itself. Then last week I saw a large clock for £2.99! As it's large it gave me the scope to decorate it in my style. The first backing paper I chose I made a mess of when I placed my numbers as they were not square set so I had to begin again only slower and learn from my mistakes! This paper is by K&Company by Brenda Walton. Firstly I traced the position of the original numbers on the clock then I could place my own correctly. I stuck my paper onto the clock with spray and stay to give a very even result having removed all working parts first of course. I cut my numbers with my Cameo just using the Ariel font so they were not fussy then used my traced image to help me stick them exactly. The 2 little girl fairies are from the Silhouette store. Two of the butterflies are by Bird the others from the Silhouette store. I've glittered the fairies wings and the butterflies plus a few gems. I added a larger butterfly right in the center of the hands so each time the clock ticks the butterfly flies. I'm so happy with this as it contains all my top 5 loves, my Cameo, butterflies, fairies, flowers and bling. It is of course for my tiny space.
