Fall Clock

This clock is a lot of fun to make and would be lovely on your desk at home or work.


Here are basic instructions for this project.

1. Using the back side of a cd, be sure that the surface is clean from fingerprints.
2. Dab alcohol inks onto felt that is adhered by a velcro block. I used rust, and butterscotch from the Tim Holtz collection. Daub the entire surface of the cd. This will give a really nice marble look to the cd.
3. One tan (2.25 by 5″) and one brown to (2.5 by 5″) Adhere tan onto brown cardstock leaving a 1/4″ border on both sides. Place on top of cd. Use cd as guide and trim away the excess from the top and bottom of paper.
4. Stamp Maple Leaf Background onto tan cardstock. Paint with Twinkling H20’S, I used brown and pink. After the leaves are painted, I went over some areas of surface with pink and brown chalk to give extra dimension.
5. Next. Stamp the Maple Leaf background again onto watercolor paper. Using versafine black ink. (this ink is great for watercoloring, it will not bleed and you do not have to heat set). Once stamped, choose 8 leaves to paint in. Paint then cut out.
6. I added a layer of ultra thick embossing enamil to each leaf to give a dew drop effect to the leaves.
7. Layer the leaves to your stamped surface. You can use thin pop dots to give added dimension.
8. To finish the pane of leaves,embellish with pearl seed beads and other various beads that match. your color scheme. Once panel is complete you will need to cut a circle into center to allow for the clock piece to be assembled.
9. Last I coiled 6 pieces of 3″ copper wire into 3/4″ coils. I adhered to surface of clock face with E6000 and then placed a bead in the center of each coil. Using jewlery glue again.
