Precious Time for Noor! Design UK

Hi everyone. It's my last post for Noor! Design UK today as Tracy's guest and yep you guessed it, I'm running late again. The past couple of weeks have just been a hectic time, but luckily it should start calming down for me a bit next week. So as you can tell time is a precious thing to me at the moment and that leads us rather neatly into my project today.

I must admit that I was completely out of my comfort zone with this one as I don't really play with mixed media a lot. When Tracy first asked me if I fancied decorating one of the MDF clocks I thought I'd do something very steampunk inspired, but it really didn't work out. So I've been putting this one off till the end lol.
In the end I've gone for shabby chic with a bit of steampunk fusion with the addition of the gears and clock face die. I hope you like it.

I primed my clock with plenty of gesso before adding the paper, crackle glaze and gluing together.
Love that distress glitter, it's fabulous, mind you it get's everywhere lol!

I added lots of Crackle Glaze, I really like the way it adds interest here.

Adding some leaves in among your flowers really helps to break them up when you have a lot of them together, and adds extra interest.

and I finished off with a lock and key and more gesso.
Flowers, twine and pearls are from the Ribbon Girl and my stash.

I hope you like my make today, I've really enjoyed my time as a guest with Noor! Design UK, even if I have had to step out of my comfort zone at time. Thank you so much Tracy for inviting me.
