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. 

Thank you so much for stopping by.
