Haunted Assemblage Clock

Hello friends! Todays project is all about the new Halloween Idea-ology release. I love creating home decor pieces for Halloween and this years release is really inspiring! I hope you have time to play! 

The base of the project starts with an Assemblage Clock. Remove the bells + handles in one piece and remove the feet.  Paint the sides and pieces of the Assemblage Clock with Gesso to help with adhesion, then add Crackle Paste randomly rubbed over the surface and let air dry. Don't for get the face of the clock, the feet, bells and handle. Once the paste is dry it will show all the cracking, paint with Iced Spruce Distress Paint and let dry. Add Mushroom Alcohol Ink to a felt Applicator tool and ponce randomly over the surface of the clock. Draw Walnut Stain Distress Crayon in small sections over the clock and with a damp finger rub out the crayon to enhance the crackling. 

Trace the Assemblage Clock backing on your choice of paper from the Abandon Halloween Paper Stash Pad. Cut out with scissors smaller then the traced line and test to ensure it fits.This will be the foundation for the clock. The background of the clock has a little village that was die cut from the Sizzix Ghost Town Thinlits set. Ink Mica with Alchemy Alcohol Ink on an Applicator Tool and add to the windows for a little glow. Build the Haunted Halloween Ghost Town , trees and a moon using foam tape to add them to the background piece. You can add little fairy lights behind the houses as desired. 
Halloween Adornments are painted with Black Soot Distress Paint and Distress Crayon was added to enhance the letters and numbers and added to a Swivel Clasp to hang off the side of the clock. 

Line the inside of the clock with Mummy Cloth that has been died with Antique Linen Distress Ink Spray and dry flat with a heat tool. Stamp spider web image with Black Soot Archival ink then adhere to the sides with Collage Medium and let dry. 

Cut Metal Gate in half, cut to fit around the bottom and adhere with hot glue. Fussy cut a section from the group of Trick-or-Treaters, color with Distress Markers, blend out with a cotton swab, dry with a heat tool and spray with a fixative. Add a few Mask from the Sizzix Mascaraed thinlits die set and maybe a crown and wand for the princesses.
Adhere the Trick-or-Treaters in front of the gate and add moss and pumpkins and desired. 

And the wise old owl looking over the children was painted with Black Soot Distress Paint, partially dried and then rub off raised areas.  Color eye with Alchemy Pearl Alcohol Ink and paint with a tiny brush then go back and add the small dot in the center with Black Soot Distress paint. Add a little Mushroom Alcohol Ink to a cotton swab and rub on the raised areas of the owl.  Adhere Owl to the handle with Collage Medium resting the wings on the clock bells. Add a little Pumpkin with moss and a steam under the owl. Tie Mummy Cloth around the chain of the fastener. 

Adhere Hardware Heads to the face of the clock and don't forget to add a bat or two. Have fun creating your version for halloween!
