Rustic Altered Clock

Hi Judy here, with my inspirational project for May's rustic challenge.

Create any mixed media project incorporating inspiration from the below Moodboard

I was inspired by this rustic look and decided to create a reversed canvas on a wooden frame and use parts of an old wind up clock along with other findings from my boxes of treasures. 

This is my old clock I found at a thrift store. 

This is my completed creation.

To create my project I turned my wooden frame backwards and painted it copper brown. stamped with surface with a set of rubber stamps that were time related. Once I had the frame painted I added Patine blue antiquing solution. 

 To create the layers in my frame I used several plastic lids out of my recycling box.  I added the inside of the clock and some of the other clock piece to the design. When you move the project the clock still sometimes starts ticking. 

I added many other pieces to the frame such as a couple of butterflies, clock front from Graphic Fairy, sentiment, metals, image from Tim Holtz and other findings.

Here are some closer looks:
