Woo Hoo...I am so excited about this months Club Scrap Blog Hop - Woven Strands!!! I knew exactly what I wanted to create when I saw the kit...the only question was would I actually be ABLE to make it. This months kit is very Celtic in design with lots of beautiful Celtic knots and images. The first thing that came to my mind was Gothic architecture...with led to Gothic arches and this months creation a Gothic arch clock!
And here it is!!! I made it completely from scratch. I used book board for the foundation of the clock then each piece was covered with papers from the Woven Strands kit, the embellishments on the face and side of the clock also come from the kit. The front frame and embellishments inside were stamped and embossed with gold ep.
The only extra bits were the ink and embossing powders, the clock mechanism, a hinge for the back door and the acorn nuts I used for the clock feet.
Here's a view of what the sides look like.... These blocks were cut from one of the pattern papers then matted with cardstock from the kit.
And this is the little door I put in the back of the clock so I could get to the clock mechanism to change the time/battery.
And finally the bottom - don't you love those wicked cool feet? There's a story behind those for another day... I'll have a complete tutorial on how it was made tomorrow in case you're interested in building one for yourself.
