Wallflower Assemblage clock.

Happy Friday..
Ok I will admit it, yes I have an obsession with the Tim Holtz Wallflower Paper stash..
 I just cant get enough of it!! so that got me thinking... hmm how about a wallflower inspired assemblage clock.. sure, why not!!

 I started off by altering my clock base with distress paint.... sigh  I just love the colour and patina it gives with the shiny metallic base of the clock..
Then came the  hard part, choosing what to put on the background of my clock.... which papers to you know how hard this was, once I decided to add in the cute little bird, I was right, and it all sort of fell into place. I then added in some remnant rubs, a distress ink reinker coloured woodlands tree with a sprinkle of rock candy distress glitter.( these just make me smile!!)   and a couple of fussy cut butterflies to finished of my background. I cut some of the bristles off the back of the woodlands tree to flatten it  and kept these aside to add in later.  
Now came the fun part... filling the inside with all sort of goodies and bits and pieces.. I die cut some glassine paper and a piece of the wallflower paper with the Tim Holtz Tattered floral die ( using the two smallest flowers)  and made some flowers to add into my clock. Then came the cute little fussy cut bird, he just makes me smile as well! I also added in some of the pieces I had cut off the back of my woodlands tree. I then refitted the back, and I was done with the inside of my clock.
The final touches consisted of a bit of crinkle ribbon coloured with pumice stone and antique linen distress re inker.. along with some trinkets and baubles.. and I was done!
