Shabby Chic Altered Clock - Photo Tutorial

I altered this clock for a DT call for Lavish Laces on You Tube.

This is how the clock looked to begin with.

I took the clock apart, and sanded it, then painted it with white acrylic paint & Linen paint.

I tore strips of the Prima Fairy Rhymes paper and adhered them with Mod Podge, to give a textured effect.

I used a sponge brush to add white acrylic to the clock face, to give a shabby look.

I sprayed the entire clock with my homemade spray paint in red & pearl to give a pink effect.

I embellished the clock with WOC flowers & lace, & other embellishments from my stash.

I had a lot of fun altering this clock, and hope to do another one soon, but maybe more grungy!

Have a lovely day, & please let me know what you think!
