Clocks

Hello fellow taggers. I hope you are all well and the weather isn't being too harsh wherever you are. 
What a cracking lot of Owl tags there were last week! And so much inspiration. 
Thank you for all your kind comments about mine, they mean a lot to me, so I do thank you very much.
I see that already there are so many amazing 'Clocks' tags this week. What a clever lot you are! 
I was struggling a little with ideas for this weeks theme until I was in a garden centre on Saturday and saw a row of Sundials - Ta-daah!! My light-bulb moment.

I added Antique Linen DI to the tag and cut out two lots of pictures. I cut out the bottom sundial so that I could add some glossy accents to it and 3D it with foam pads. I printed out the definition of a clock and stuck that in pieces across the tag. I then added a wee metal clock from my stash to the bottom with some old gold chain which I also used for the tie. 


Here is a close-up of the dictionary definition and you can see my shiny Accents. I learnt a little about Glossy Accents on Saturday at a craft demo which was held in the craft shop part of the garden centre, so of course I had to get some. 
Have a great week everyone and thanks for reading :0) *hug* x

  7. Great idea Mo - I think you will find the Glossy Accents investment was a prudent one. I love the stuff - great glue too! Love your dangling charms - reminds me of pendulums.

  8. Great tag! I like the dictionary definition and the sundials are an original take on the theme. I haven't used Glossy Accents, will have to put them on my "to do" list!
