Clocks


Hi everybody,  'Clocks'  is a theme I like. I started making a tag, and before I knew what had happened, my tag had turned into a clock, which is now ticking away merrily on my kitchen wall. I now have a whole battery of clocks there. (No pun intended!) I cut a tag using TH's Cabinet card day, embossed it in a TH texture fade folder, distressed it, and then mounted it onto an old calendar page, which I cut just a tiny bit bigger than the cabinet card to give it a frame. Then I added one of my 1€ clockworks,  a hanger, some wings and a quote,and that was it!



And I wanted to show another clock tag I made recently,also with a working clock, although it was not made especially for today:




Thanks for looking, and for all the nice comments left in the last weeks! Have a good week!
Valerie

  10. I love both clock tags Valerie - I love those miniature clock mechanisms - I have never seen them so small - that is why I went out and bought a watch to use for my tag! Where did you get them from? Love the quote - so true!

  12. Helen, I got the clocks from the 1€ shop here, they were very horrible little kitchen clocks, so I bought a supply to take apart and put into other things.
