Tempus Fugit..

...which, in English, means "Time Flies".  The Anything But A Card Blog challenge is to make anything but a card (naturally!) including something that has wings.  So of course, I made a clock.  With wings.
I was inspired to make this by a project in the latest Creativity magazine from Docrafts, which was based upon altering a carriage clock.  I didn't have a carriage clock to alter - so I made my own out of chipboard.  The main part lifts off so treasures can be kept inside - I'm thinking of maing a mini album to fit inside but I haven't decided yet!  Just for once I took photos so I could show you what I did - you can find them on my website here

Apart from the wings, which were cut with a Tim Holtz Alterations die, and the chipboard, which came out of a box of envelopes, the whole thing was made using items from the Chronology range from Docrafts.  I'm a Steampunk fan so this range is totally my cup of tea - I hope it's around for a while, but I'm taking no chances and I'm stocking up!

Anyway, thank you for visiting and I hope you enjoyed.  You're welcome to drop by at any time!

That is one fantastic clock there Keren. I agree, this range is amazing and you've really used it to perfection here. So impressed that you made your own clock but after your treasure chest last year nothing surprises me anymore - you seem to be able to conjure up 3D projects to knock our socks off on a regular basis now! Hugs, Jenny x

Hi Keren, I really love that Chronology range, not used my bits yet but I am so impressed that you made a carriage clock that looks like a real clock! How clever are you? The colours are amazing and I really love the wings. Hugs, Anne x
