Altered Vintage -Steampunk Clock

Hello Little Birdie friends Hilda her! Today I made an altered clock.
First I selected a cardboard house shape and a pedestal.
I started with giving them a coat of black gesso, then I applied mixed media paste with a stencil.
Once dry, I applied another coat of black gesso to cover the stencil and I started to paste all the elements with Gum Arabic. I chose two clock chipboards, and other elements like gears and metal embellishments.
Then glued some flowers and decorate with craft pellets.
Once dry, I covered the flowers and pellets with black gesso.
To finish it off, I added brown and then Passionate Plum acrylic chalk paint with dry brush technique and gave some touches of Caribbean Teal metallic paint, Antique Gold and Cooper Blaze waxes.
And that’s it! I hope you like it. I will see you soon.
Hugs
Hilda
