Mixed Media Wall Clock Art

Hello Friends,

Today I have a lovely tutorial post for you all.For this post I have used variety of products and believe me getting them all together worked like magic.This particular piece was in my mind for long,finally able to complete it,Big thanks to for getting everything under one roof.It was really easy to shop all at one click.Without taking much time let me show you the picture of final work.


Sharing few close ups and more pictures of final frame

Let me start with my tutorial for this project.I have used a cardboard sheet, Bob and Betty decoupage sheets  for this.I started by attaching them to the base cardboard with the help of Mod Podge. These sheets are just wow both by designs and textures.The craftsneed store has many more such beautiful options.

This is how it looks after attaching all paper.

Now I started doing some stencil work with modelling paste.I have used stencil from Crafters companion.I added some white acrylic to the paste to give white popped up effect on the design.

Then I have used some Mdf and Metal embellishments to adorn the piece

After that I started making some Handmade flowers on Papericious Sigma Cardstock.I have used distress ink to give the color to flowers.

After completing the flowers this is how I have arranged them on the frame.Trust me they look much more beautiful than what is looking in picture.

Here completes my frame finally.I am also planning to attach real clock machine and hands to the frame.If that works out will surely post it soon.Otherwise also my beautiful mixed media frame is ready to adorn my wall.

Hope I am able to inspire you.All material used is from

 Bob and Betty decoupage sheets -
