The clock came from the Poundland Mothers Day range, Marc spotted it on the website and said it would be perfect for altering.
After that I just doodled basic flower and leaf shapes straight onto the clock using Promarker pens, then outlining and adding detail to them in black, as well as filling in any gaps, before applying a couple of coats of quick drying glossy varnish.
When the varnish was dry I couldn’t help myself by just outlining the design again in white using a white Pilot Super Colour pen before a couple more coats of varnish with a little ultra fine iridescent glitter added for a fairy lustre effect.
And finally ……. small, very sparkly flat backed gems round the dial ….. done and dusted and now sitting in one of the partitions of my what not shelf on my desk.
I just wish I had bought a couple more of these clocks ….. because now I can think of lots of other ways to decorate them ….. I am thinking way ahead to Christmas …. and can just see one painted with a blue sky, stars, glittery snow and a couple of cute snowmen standing at the bottom …… !
