Altered Tim Holtz clock

Today I have a super fun project. 
This project I made for Discount Paper Crafts. 

I altered a Tim Holtz clock. Here is a rough run down of what I did. 

I started off by taking out the glass and painting the whole clock with 2 coats of Gesso. I then used some Liquitex modeling paste to create a lot of texture. I just scraped it on. I also used some Shimmerz Texturez in white. I then used a combination of Lindys Stamp Gang sprays. Gausamer gold, Clam bake beige, South shore sand, Jack frost and Cape cod coral. 
For the inside of the clock I covered the back piece with some Prima Lyric paper. I used my Prima Distress tool to distress the edges of the paper. I used some lace from my stash that I sprayed with Clam bake beige. I then used a Leaky Shed studios clock that I cut to fit inside. I used a super cute picture of my kids and I popped it up with some cardboard. I used a Prima vine that I cut up so I can get a lot of use out of it. I added some images from the paper and some Prima clock hands. I also used some Prima buttons with some twine. 
For the outside of the clock I used some more of that Prima vine and I added a sentiment that was in the Lyric  paper. I used a Prima clock and some more of the Prima clock hands. I also used a Prima flower from the engraver collection.  I added a Prima resin to the top of the clock. I also used a couple Leaky Shed studios butterflies. 

Here are some more pictures.

Here are some more pictures.

What my number means to me. 
(My journaling is clipped to the paper clip behind the picture) 
After being blessed with my son almost 7 years ago I never thought I would beable to have another child. I had many complications with my son and after I had him. After 4 years I became pregnant but I was very scared because of previous miscarriages. After 3 months I was still scared...... Once they told me I was going to have a little girl I was so ecstatic. I still did have some fear and some scares a long the way but here she is 2 years later. So beautiful, smart and funny. The time goes by so quick and I feel so blessed to have my daughter. 

Here is a list of the items I used from TPBP

Thank you so much for stopping by.

I know Father's day already...... Mother's day hasn't even passed yet. But the days go by so quick. I used the Super Dad stamp set. I used 2 of the banner die sets. The 2 smaller banners are from the Flag it Die set and the banner with the sentiment on it is from the Banner bundle set. The top layer on the main banner is from the Flag it Set as well.  I did cut some stars out with the Starry die set

The paper I used is from Teresa Collins. It is the He said She said paper. Super cute and not a normal paper pack I would pick up but I loved the mustaches and I was determined to use one in my card but it didnt work out. I used Stazon Ink to stamp the sentiment and stars.
