Keeping Time With the "Rhythm" of LifeFebruary 9th, 2009 in projects
I started with several ideas on what to do for the challenge, which means I scrapped several attempts to make something good out of the rolls of paper. Anyway, when I decided to do something with the old clock that I took apart, I wasn't sure what I was going to put back in there until I found the big pocketwatch at the swap meet last Sunday, then things started falling into place. I first painted the wooden box with a milk paint called Olde Parchment, glued the paper from the rolls inside the box, and then mounted a block of old molding from the back and a hook on top of that to hold the clock. I used the ends of the rolls with round earring parts glued on top for finials for the top of the box, added a cute little vintage pull and a piece of junk that I don't know what it is , to hold an old photo. The words to my song semed to be a rousing patriotic ditty that made little sense to me, but were added down the side of the box for the graphic effect.
After you make it, show it off to other members in the Member Junk area.
