An altered clock for Xyron, Core'dinations and Petaloo blog hop....a tutorial



At times it is a lot more economical to buy a finished product and then alter it to suit your taste. Like this clock I altered for the Xyron, Core'dinations and Petaloo blog hop.


It was a pretty clock to begin with but it needed some texture don't you think? *winks*


I cut some Core'dinations cardstock and then used the Core'dinations Sand It tool.


Then I added some pretty Petaloo Fancy Trim and adhered them with Xyron/Teresa Collins Clear Hold Adhesive.


For the pendulum, I adhered a piece of DCWV patterned paper with Xyron/teresa Collins Clear Hold Adhesive.


The edges were outlined with a black Sharpie and a white pen. Then I added Petaloo blooms from the Penny Lane Garden Collection.


Next I coloured some American Crafts thickers with a black Sharpie and outlined with a white pen. These were then glued to the clock using Xyron/Teresa Collins Clear Hold Adhesive.


There you have it...a really simple altered clock that anybody can try at home. What do you think?

Don't forget to comment on the Xyron, Core'dinations and Petaloo blogs for your chance to win some goodies! :)

I love your clock idea. I have a very boring clock. You have really inspired me to change that and make it pretty and if I ever get tired of it I can change it to a different paper.
