Assemblage clock -CC3C challenge 10

I know I keep saying it, but this Tim Holtz Challenge with the Compendium of Curiosities 3
Is just so much fun to do. This time it's no. 10 , Assemblage clock . To join in it's here:-

Also there are great prizes. ! A box of goodies from Tim Holtz & his manager Mario.
This prize is for the curiosity teams choice. There are also honourable mention badges to be won !
Plus .... This time the Funkie junkie boutique are giving a $25 gift voucher :-)

Here without further ado is my clock. I knew what I was going to do even before this
One was announced , I wanted to make a family heirloom that hopefully will be
Brought out and cherished for years !

     I added some little lights behind the tree and Santa as he was all dark in there! 
Hubby Drilled some holes in the back for them 

Here are some close ups of details

 This is the box to go and buy for this challenge . You must buy your own book to
See what Tim Holtz does with his one :-)

I cut out a card circle to fit into the back of the clock , to decorate inside

I took the clock apart to paint it with gesso, easier than getting paint all over the glass!

I pained my circle of card with ice blue fresco paint.
I added a Santa idea-ology sticker 
I then made sparkly snow with lots of Wendy Vecchi embossing 
Paste and glitter , blue & white.

See below where I carried on with the 'snow' & glitter. On the clock pieces 
& a die cut fence too


  1. Wow! Love this snowy scene... the gate and the snowflakes and icicles... so many terrific details. Thanks so much for joining us at CC3C, Janna!

  2. Ohhhhhh! I just love your little Santa scene with all the snow! The fence looks like the real deal, too! It's all so pretty! What type of lights are you using? I think mine (not nearly done yet) might look a little better with some lighting, but everything I've tried is too bright for the scene, and the lantern is out of the question from a design standpoint. I absolutely love your clock and the way you led us through the steps you took. Great job!

  3. Janna...THIS IS ABSOLUTELY PRECIOUS! I LOVE IT! I love the frosty, glistening snow and icicles. I can almost feel that winter sting in the air when looking at this! I LOVE your idea of adding the lights to the background by drilling the holes. That is my ONLY complaint about the clocks is how dark they can be on the inside once you snap that back on. You've conquered that! Love your little snow covered fence on the front with the word band. Darling! Love your vintage Santa in the interior. Love the white bottle brush tree and the glistening moonlight in the winter sky. Your photograph hanging on the exterior of the clock in the little oval frame is darling! This will definitely be a family heirloom! GREAT JOB!! Thanks so much for sharing such a special piece with all of us at CC3C. <3 Candy
