Another Front Porch Kit Project

Remember this sneak from last week?  Did anyone guess what it might be?

This "Time to..." kit comes with a little white clock.  The Design Team was challenged to alter or decorate it in some way.  This is what I created - a little birdie for "Time Flies"!

I alcohol-inked the front of the clock and then used the new small leaf "movers and shapers" die to cut a bunch of "feathers" for the bird's body.  I overlapped and glued them to the sides and around the front of the clock.  

The wings are book pages handcut into wing shapes and covered with beeswax, then glued to the sides.  The head was also cut from the book text and inked.  The eye is hard to see but is a drop of black Enamel Accents from Ranger.  "Time Flies" was stamped on a strip from the border of the same page.  

And the little feet? Craft sticks are included in the kit so I cut one in half, shaped the ends and painted them with black and white stripes.  All supplies are from the kit, with the exception of the alpha stamps, inks and paints.
