Altering Time

Another of the crafts I did when I've been off was to alter my kitchen clock.  If you remember a previous ranting post I made a while ago, I mentioned how I wanted to alter my plain, white kitchen clock:
Here is my 'offending' item, just waiting for its transformation...
I took the plastic cover off, distressed round the outside edge with Stazon ink and then stamped the gears into the centre....
..I also inked the inner rim of the clock with a permanent marker..
.
..and there you  have it!

I also added more distressing (ink) to the plastic glass front but it made the clock look more like a dirty workshop clock than a kitchen clock so I wiped it off again. 

I should point out that my house is of the old Victorian type, rather than a modern new build, so it lends itself more to the grungey messy vintage look.

While I'm on, I thought you might also like to see the finished altered bag that I have finally completed:

All I need now is a fun night out to take it to now!
Dazzle, dazzle.

See you tomorrow!
