Getting Creative Again

Earlier this week, I finished Bent Creek's "Black Sheep."
Cute little guy, isn't he?  And I was trying to figure out what to do with him.  Then I remembered something I'd seen at the craft store when I was looking for those little Tim Holtz pocketwatches - an assemblage clock.  So the wheels started turning...
I picked some fabrics, found the cutest little jointed bear amongst my collected bits of kitsch, and got to work.  I made a pattern of the clock back with matboard, glued some fiberfill to it, and laced the stitched piece to that.
I glued the mounted piece to the clock back.  Then I lined the metal inside of the clock with fabric (that fabric is dark blue with little silver sparkles), and glued my little bear in place.  I made the bear a blanket with a contrasting fabric, and snapped the back on.  I embellished the outside of the clock with some twisted cording and beads.
And ta-da!!  Perfect for the little table in my guest room!

Decision Made

After monkeying with the shells and beads some more, I decided to take them all off... ...and I think I like it best this way.  I did add...
