Altered Rustic Clock

Part of the September Kit at Flying Unicorn includes a Tim Holtz Clock
as Guest Designer I decided to alter this clock by creating a very rusty /grunge look 
I had such fun, with lots of layers of Gesso, Viva croco Crackle, clear rock candy/ crackle paint  and distress stain /ink  .
I hung a metal key with various other metal elements, on the side of the clock .
'TIME' 
 I found the quote on Pinterest.
'Time'
is a friend, a healer, a maker of dreams
and every moment it holds in its hands 
is filled with new beginnings.




thanks for looking at my work and for leaving me some love 

bye for now
big hugz from Heather xox
