My Altered Journey Clock... by Guest Designer Jess B.
Hello Everyone! Jess B. here today with a fun and "TIMELY" project to share.
In my young adult age I was called "Touch-n-Go". I'd traveled constantly visiting friends and exploring their states when possible. I knew how to turn 2 weeks of vacation to 6 travels a year. I've traveled from Florida to California to Europe.
Today I'm sharing an altered clock I purchased at the neighborhood thrift shop for $2.00. I used a mini hexagon ice mold from Outset and Unity Stamp Co - Life is a journey.
I prepared Amazing Casting Resin®. I put 3 drops of Alumilite Yellow and Black Dyes® into my mixing/pouring cup, pour in Part "A" with Popsicle stick provided and then added Part "B" and started to mix until there were no more swirls.
I poured the yellow resin into the flexible ice mold and I poured the black resin on top of the rubber stamp (sorry that I did not take a picture of this process). I wasn't sure if was going to be a failure or not but it came out beautiful. I removed the resin when cured and trimmed edges with scissors while it's still a little pliable.
When I do this again, I will mask off the edges of the stamp
with painter's tape to make a clean edge.
I used patterned paper from American Crafts - Travel
and arranged my resin pieces with E-6000 adhesive.
I reassembled the clock popped in a new battery
and it now hangs on my wall in my craft room.
This fun clock will always put a smile on my face
and inspire my children to travel the world.
