Several months ago, the super sweet Terri Sproul sent me a chipboard pocket watch that she designed. I finally put it together and decorated it.
It came un-assembled, in this flat package with Terri's picture in the top corner. So cute!
- The Robin's Nest Papers Black on White Damask and Black and White Holly
- The Robin's Nest Dew Drops Spring Blooms and Lily Pad
- Terri Sproul Designed Steampunk Watch
- Ranger Glossy Accents
- Glitter Markers
I gathered my papers, watch and Dew Drops and decided which papers I was use.
I picked the damask for the background of the watch, and the holly for the outside of the watch. I liked how the black was almost like a very dark grey. It helps go with the vintage feel I wanted. When the paper was attached to the watch, I sanded it for more distressing. I also fussy cut some of the actual holly to put on the outside of the watch.
I used glitter markers on the numbers, gears, hands and winding key.
I attached the layers of the watch with glossy accents. I added a brad to attach the hands of the watch. The gears, holly and dew drops were all attached with glossy accents too. I found a chain piece and thought it was the perfect finishing touch!
I LOVE how it came out!!
