Craft Barn Alpha Challenge - C

The second letter in the Craft Barn Alpha challenge, is C.

I was going to use 'circle' but the page from my dictionary has already been torn out (I am using one I bought cheaply to use for torn book pages!!) so I decided for 'Clock'.

I painted the page with Limelight Fresco paint and die cut the Weathered Clock (Tim Holtz) from a piece of 7 Gypsies paper (decorated with clocks but I decided to paint it black so it stood out more on the dictionary page, so the pattern has been obliterated!)


I stamped the weathered clock image (I have this in various sizes!) randomly over the page and the "time is a companion" which is also by Tim Holtz on a spare piece of paper, coloured with bundled sage distress ink.

Looking forward to seeing how many different C words are used this fortnight! I may even dream up another one...

That's it, you have inspired me to have a go at this challenge - will have to catch up and do the v first though. Love the colour you have used, I'm a bit partial to lime. Crafting this afternoon it is then

Great spread of clocks. Guess I won't be looking at your page for the correct time though :-)

Fab page Helen, love the background colour. I think you made the right choice to paint your focal clock, it really makes the whole spread pop.

Well the clocks are circles... so both work. Shame both words were not on the same page.
Fab page!
