Hello ladies, when I saw this picket fence clock I was super excited to alter this. I gave the fence a weathered paint look with a crackle technique. I painted the slates with 2 coats of flat black paint, then added my crackle medium. Once it was dried I added vintage ivory acrylic paint and then added black distress ink to all the edges.
I added a birdcage, which I manipulated to give it some dimension. I pained it with snow tex for more dimension and added a very small flower to the top. I also inked it slightly with black distress ink.
The clock face I used Prima paper along with the base of the fence. The numbers on the clock I painted with black ink, then used my finger to added gesso to make the numbers pop. I also added gesso to the clock hands to make them stand out more.
The flourish details I inked with 2 different distress inks, Crushed Olive and Forest Moss. Then again using my finger to add gesso for dimension. I then added several flowers from my stash to finish it off.
I just love the way this came out! Thanks for stopping and have a crafty day!
