I'm adding my clock to this month's Mixed Media Monthly Challenge #20- Time Flies. Although it's definitely not as mixed-media-y as I usually get, I think that it still fits the bill since I altered the clock with paint and added a variety of different elements like glittered chipboard and sequins. If for some reason it doesn't qualify, I totally understand. I was sort of on the fence about whether or not it's truly mixed media. :)
I could kick myself for not taking before photos of the clock! Ugh. It's always cooler to see the transformation of an altered piece and I'm so sorry that I forgot. Suffice it to say, my little clock is very happy with her makeover! This project was so much fun! First thing I did was paint the outside of the clock...light pink....then metallic grey...finally, it ended up being this sky blue spray paint from Krylon. the circle frame, chipboard paper clip and metal base of the light bulb were painted in gold with Viva 3D Stamp Paint. If you happened to notice, the inside of the clock face has been turned into a shaker with yummy sequins from Verve and Doodlebug that coordinate great with this So Much Happiness 12x12 patterned paper--so I guess that makes this a shaker clock--see, told ya it was fun, hehe!Life In Color Fundamentals Cardstock Stickers from Simple Stories are nice and sturdy, so they make for really great embellishments. I played around with arranging everything and inked all edges in chalky white ink, then popped some of the stickers with 3D dots. Along with the stickers, I added a wee bit of cheesecloth, the gold arrow, domino and glass light bulb from my own stash to the front of the clock in a sort of messy layers until I was satisfied.
