I found a Tim Holtz Assemblage clock on a recent trip, and had to buy it. It’s from the Tim Holtz Idea-ology line, and it offers so many creative possibilities! Love me a blank canvas. The back pops off, so you can add lots of creative goodies inside.
I searched Pinterest for ideas, and found a great tutorial from Christy Tomlinson on You Tube. In fact, watching the altered clock video was really what turned me on to this whole mixed media kick I’ve been on lately. She made it look so easy!
My version of the Assemblage clock features hearts, ribbons, pink, keys, washi tape and glitter – very me. It looks great in my Valentine’s Day holiday hutch, and will live in my studio year-round.
I kinda wish I’d waited until spring to do this clock project, because I think the outside would look so much better spray painted. But, that just means I get to make another one. I’d like to do a Christmas themed version.
