Spending my TIME wisely :)

Something fun :)  Endless possibilities!  I tend to lean toward the fantastic.  I think this would be perfect in a child's bedroom.

The lettering is metal colored with turquoise Sharpie and then covered with copper colored glitter.  I thought this made it look like a patina.  Very little coloring was done to the images stamped in blue, fussy cut and popped up before adhering. The original clock face was removed and photocopied to quality cardstock. 

The bottom stamping is the result of several stamps overlapped with a paper masking technique. This way I could control the curvature of the horizon line & limit the look of repetition ;)

The background stamp, Paisley Background, and Fairyland, images are all from Stampin' Up! 

I like the serene feeling of the subtle coloring and the depth that the pop dot adhesive also gives it. 

A little hard to see, but bright blue and deep blue jewels adorn the outside of the clock's frame, & shimmering glue
dots the floral landscape! The coloring was done with gel pens!

Hope you enjoyed.  Spend your time wisely !! (ha! ha! I'm so clever sometimes!!)
