Autumn colours at Sweet Lilac

Hi guys, we've got a fabby new  Sweet Lilac challenge for you today, use autumn colours, so browns, tans, oranges and like mine purples and mauve's lol,

I bought this clock to alter months ago to go in my bedroom, then the family moved in so it got put on hold, I told myself once I got my craft room and bedroom back i would alter it, so here it is lol,
I started off by adding two coats of  white gesso to the clock then when the second coat was  still tacky I added some frantage in white and aged wine mixed together, this I then heat set,
I cut a circle in some gorgeous Maja design paper - Autumn Basics NoII  sewed and distressed the edges for the clock face I also added a pearl string using a heat gun,

On the right hand side of the clock
I've used some of the gorgeous flowers from Sweet Lilac and some of the beautiful leaves they sell too,
Closer view of the  flowers and leaves, I added a charm from my stash and lightly gave it some snow tex treatment,
I added some metal numbers from live and love crafts and too these I added some snow Tex for texture, the wooden clock hands are from my stash and I added a beautiful pearl embellishment from Sweet Lilac in the middle, a few liquid pearl dots were added  on the paper here and there too,
For a little added depth to my clock I painted a wooden fence I bought at The Range with gesso and then added a script stamp from a Stempelglede stamp set,
to this I fixed a T/H photo film linking the right hand side to the left and added a couple more of the fabby flowers,
The  adorable Saturated Canary digi called puppy Luv is one of two images but i only used the girl and is coloured with my distress re-inkers and then fussy cut out, I layered her in front of the fence with 3D glue,
Closer view of frantage finish and some more of the flowers and smaller leaves from Sweet Lilac and a pearl string which I wound round the flowers and over the handle to give a softer look,
Full view again,
Hope you will join us at Sweet Lilac with your projects made using some of their gorgeous products too, talking of which I went to their shop yesterday in St Helen's, wow you want to see the new flowers and leaves they will have on the website soon,!!!!! of course i just couldn't resist getting a few lol,
