Assemblage Clock Compendium of Curiosities Challenge 10

Back with another Linda Ledbetter Compendium Challenge.  This time the sponsor is The Funkie Junkie.  The prizes for this challenge are just awesome.  There are still plenty of projects in the book if you want to join in the fun!


The little fairies are Found Relatives that I plunked in their tart tin boat.  I love using these guys.  I wasn't able to put the glass back in my clock(the tin was too big), so that allowed me to flow more flowers out of the front.
I used gesso and Distress Paint, in Bundled Sage and Forrest Moss, to cover the clock.  Once it was dry I alcohol ink to age it a bit.  The background is from the Wallflower paper.





This was super simple to make.  The fairy boat to the longest and I had already done that part earlier!
I love to alter clock and will have a Halloween one to show you shortly.  Be sure to check back!

  1. Very cool, Jess! Love how you've made little fairies from the Found Relatives. I wonder who these people are and wouldn't they be surprised to find themselves in cool art like yours.

    1. Thanks Cheryl. I love to make them into fairies. Sometimes they look so serious and a pair of wings fixes that right up!

    1. Thanks Belinda. The filling in the tin was actually a nest that I cut up and sort of squashed in there!
