Today I am sharing a tutorial on how I made my craft’s room wall clock!
Check it out in the photo just above my crafting area.
It’s so colorful and i just love those butterflies instead of numbers. You can use whatever you like instead of a flower – butterflies combination and it can be as big or small as you like… the possibilities are endless!
I used a butterfly from the Sizzix and Hero Arts set, because it comes with a matching die. I would’t want to cut 12 stamped butterflies by hand. however if you don’t hava a matching die for the stamp you choose, you can cut out your images while watching TV.
I used my Cuttlebug to cut out 12 butterflies.
And then used my stamp-a-ma-jig to stamp the butterflies.
Here are the butterflies all ready to be colored:
I did some quick copic coloring, just usig a couple of markers on each butterfly.
Then I stamped a big flower twice, cut it out and colored with my copics. I placed one flower on top of the other for extra dimension. Notice the hole in the middle of the flower. I made the hole with my exacto knife.
The flower (or whatever you choose as a middle image) has to be big enough to cover the clock mechanism.
Here you can see the clock mechanism… you can find it at any DIY shop and it’s very cheap. To tell you the truth mine is recycled ( I took it out from this IKEA wall clock that didn’t like any more).
Removed the clock hands just by pulling them out. I then added a couple of glue dots on the mechanism.
I sticked the flower on the mechanism making sure the white part sticks out in the middle, add I put back the clock hands.
I arranged the butterflies on my craft surface trying to decide how far away I want them to be and the order of the colors.
And then I sticked everything on the wall using foam dimensionals.
