Scrapbook Clock (SOS August Challenge)

The Scrap Our Stash Challenge for this month is anything to do with time.  As soon as I heard this I knew exactly what my project would be.  I can’t tell you how long I have had this clock and it’s just one of those projects that has remained in the box due to lack of time.  I applied the first coat of paper with Mod Podge, after that I decided to just use my ATG gun and not worry about a top coat.  After each paper I pointed through the middle hole from the back so I could locate it and then used my Finishing Tools to sand the circle/hole and make it pretty.  One of the filing tools is rounded and works wonderfully for things like this.  Now once I got the initial covering and numbers on I just didn’t know what else to do with it.  It was pretty the way it way but I really like to embellish.  Part of me wishes I had the numbers I wanted or that I had stamped them on flower shapes or something but I’m not going and you really don’t need numbers on a clock.  After a day passed with this sitting unfinished on my desk I chose to complete it with 3D paper flowers and some sparkles.  Now all I have to do is get it hung up.  It will go in my scrapbook room but it’s not easy to get to where I want it. :-)
