Mixed Media Altered Clock

Altered Clock with Butterfly and Gears

This mixed media altered clock started with a thrift store vintage clock.  Inside the clock are layers of textures and embellishments.  I textured and painted the metal clock’s outer frame with paints from Finnabair’s Prima line. Then I glued on an assortment of embellishments (gears, button, butterflies etc.). With the clock being so deep, I made layers to bring the centre piece forward. I created depth with layers of the gears and trinkets using jumbo foam dots. The focal point is a butterfly die cut, crackled, then painted and highlighted with metallic paint.

Materials Used:

  • Thrift Store Vintage Clock
  • Tim Holtz Butterfly Dies
  • Tim Holts Gears – Chipboard
  • Foam Dots –  EK tools 1/2 inch
  • Finnibair Mechanical Cogs and Gears
  • Assorted Embellishments, and Buttons
