Clock Tower Workshop

It's Friday already! And it's been such a fun week of visiting the Club Scrap Retreat Workshops.

Along with it all, I've had a blast creating and instructing the Clock Tower Workshop at this years retreat, so as a follow up from last Friday's Blog, today I'm posting more about the decorating I did on many of them.

I enjoyed adorning the Large/Tall option of the tower in several different ways. On many, the first thing I did was rub acrylic paint onto the outside of the project to add color. I used the baby wipe technique as shown in this previous blog. It works like a charm!

From left to right:

Use same color acrylic paint & Club Scrap stencils to add interest .

Create a Grandfather Clock look by cutting away a 1-1/2" x 6-3/4" section from the front matte board wall. Use the two support pieces already included in the kit to serve as shelves. Fill up with fun miniature items.

Move the clock location by punching a new hole, and have the clock face serve as an "O" in the word LOVE, or you could use JOY on the shorter kit version.

Above are a couple of the medium sized clock towers that we did in class, simply rub paint onto the exterior and completely change the look!

Don't forget that the clock faces on that innovative cutapart sheet are alterable. I added a little ink for an aged look and rubber stamped on the one shown above.

This is a favorite of mine . . . an altered clock tower project. I used the small clock tower and cut a nook into an old dictionary for a drawer. The old dictionary, now complete with pull drawer, makes a cute base for the Clock Tower.

The nook cut away to make room for a pull drawer.
The drawer I made to fit inside.
As always, I'm hoping you enjoy this project as much as I do! 

I feel it's:
Happy project assemblage this weekend. I hope you have a great TIME!
