Tracey's amazing shabby chic altered clock and a sale!

Today we've got a simply stunning project to share with you:


Tracey used our kit Tracey's Artful Adventure (which was named after her!) to alter a plain thrift store find, and turn it into this beautiful shabby chic masterpiece.

Here's what Tracey said about her process:

Today I want to share my altered alarm clock using the goodies from my Namesake kit,"Tracey's Artful Adventure", the July Scraps of Darkness kit.
I've a had a silver retro style alarm clock that I found at a thrift store, sitting dismantled on my scrap desk and awaiting inspiration. When I opened this kit full of my favorite colors and lots of wings and clocks and lace and immediately started creating!

I started by painting all the silver parts with off white chalk paint. Using the Canvas Corp.  script tissue paper from the kit, I mod-podged it over the 
clock, then did some sanding and distress inking.




The large chipboard is by Blue Fern Studios and from the kit-I used gessos and glitters from the Creativity add-on for dimension. I added beaded greenery and leftover elements from previous kits. 


Lots of BoBunny Penny Emporium die cuts and embellishments in this kit to perfectly coordinate your projects. Here I added pearls from the Creativity kit to embellish the "time flies" chipboard element. The lovely lace from the kit was wrapped and glued around the clock to add softness and cohesion.I borrowed the feathers from the July Scraps of Elegance kit and touched the flowers from the Floral Add On and other elements with gesso and light glitter.
Have something hanging around that you never got around to altering-well, get this kit and get gluing! Have a wonderful day!
I also wanted to let you know our store has had a little (did I say little? I meant BIG) makeover, and to celebrate, we're offering $10 off your purchase of $50 or more - just enter coupon code Remodel when you are checking out.  Here's a link to the store:  www.scrapsofdarkness.com -  I hope you like our new look!
