The Witching Hour Clock

Back with another altered clock and this is a big one!  You can't really tell from the picture, but this clock is about 5 times the size of your average alarm clock.
Halloween is fast approaching and I love creating for this time of year.

The clock was spray painted using a graphite color.  The background paper is from Graphic 45.  The medallion in the middle is from Michael's, as is the hat on top.  There are some sparkly flourishes from Prima too.

I can't wait to decorate the house for Halloween.
I am entering this into a couple challenges:
Vintage Journey with a Flourish challenge
Eclectic Paperie Fall Challenge
Our Creative Corner Autumnal Inspiration Challenge- I was inspired by the gorgeous green leaves that are echoed in the berries on the hat.  The close ups of the wood look like the background on the witchy medallion.  The berries remind me of the color of the background paper.
What have you been crafting?

  3. Such a fab way to showcase the G45 paper, you've done a great turn on the "bewitching hour." I say, if it's on sale in the stores then it's time to decorate--why wait?
