Things To Alter - SteamPunk - Time Captured

A very good morning to you all and a bit of special news from me.
If you look back to my last post you'll see me "wax lyrical" about a new crafty company on the block

"Things To Alter"

Well, I am a lucky girl, I have been asked to join the DT and am amid the company of many very talented ladies. A trip over to the challenge blog to see their work will prove my word.
My first project was made before I found out what the theme was this month. Maybe I ought to put "psychic" in my C.V. as it just happened to fit. - STEAMPUNK.

I used a number of different items....
just one of the birdcages available
two of the clock hands
some of the cogs

back view

Everything was painted first on the inside with Decoart Americana Burnt Orange paint.
The roof pieces were secured together with a bit of wire wrapping after being covered with a green crackled effect paper (got to use those scraps up)

The rest got paints applied to them (Decoart)

also a touch of gold wax on the numbers and some mica dusted onto the dragonflies

The clock fit just right into the birdcage (of course I tested it before all the work painting)
There you have it - 

Time Captured
