CC3C - Challenge 10 - Assemblage Clock


Apologies for the very dodgy photo but it's late and just realised that tomorrow is the deadline for the latest Compendium of Curiosities Challenge.

I chose the theme 'Secret Garden' for my clock - the door at the back is ajar, inviting the curious to step inside....

I altered the outside of the clock with tissue decoupage and Distress Paints, finished with Treasure Gold. I was going for a kind of aged copper look. Here is an 'in progress' pic of the side.


The Funkie Junkie Boutique is back to sponsor Challenge 10, and lovely owner Linda Coughlin has a fabulous $25 shopping spree to one very lucky CC3Cer! Plus the chosen art gets goodies from Tim and Mario!

Hope you like my take on the challenge :)
Katy
