Basic Grey Transparency Clock

This was another really fun clock to make but hard to capture in a photo. I actually have this hanging in a window and it looks great with the sun shining through it. I used a window frame from Walnut Hollow (clock mechanism too) and backed it with an old BG transparency. I had to drill the hole for the clock hands and also had to use the circle of cardstock for two reasons - one, to hide the clock mechanism in the back, and two, to make the hands visible when the sun's shining! The flowers are from Prima and the flower centers are actually flat beads from Halcraft. Another thing you can't tell from the photograph is that I mixed in a gel medium and sponged the paint on - it has a pretty dimensional look to it in person.
