Tim Holtz Altered Clock

Hi everyone! Hope you're all enjoying the long weekend! Today I wanted to share an altered clock I made using the Swirlydoos May Project Kit. The ET gals did an amazing job altering theirs. I was totally inspired to get mine done! You can find their video tutorials on Swirlydoos YouTube Channel.

So, here it is
I removed the glass and painted the whole thing with gesso.Once it was dry I smothered some Glass Bead Gel in small spots for some textured. I then added another coat of Gesso. When it was dry I sprayed some Glimmermist in Vintage Pink just to give a light pink tint.

 Here is a little peek of the inside. To go with the angel wings on the outside, I placed an angel in the inside hidden among the flowers :)
Thanks so much for taking the time!!!

Can I just start off by saying...I LOVE the Prima Lyric Collection! Totally shabby chic and elegant!! I ran with the light pink and black, such a beautiful mix! I made lots of pretty layers using foam tape between each distressed paper.

Again, isn't the paper just gorgeous!?!?! Here I just did a bit more distressing around the edges. The paper has it's own pretty frame, so I just worked around it.
Swirlydoos Kits are so versatile! For my last two layouts I went with the natural colors using the Kaisercraft paper!!

This is my layout based on the monthly sketch. I usually don't scrap green because it's so hard for me. But, using the sketch and the photo as inspiration, I was able to complete this layout in less than an hour. A record for!!
Here's the awesome sketch by Begga
