A placemat that thinks it's a clock

This month's Altered Eclectics piece

For this project I used a "take" on a play along from PaperArtsy guest designer Darcy W, where we altered a coaster, but I decided to supersize it and use a cork table mat to make a clock.

Cork Place mat before

I sealed it with white gesso and then base coated in dark green acrylic paint, I then mixed Fresco Finish Guacamole with Kroma crackle medium and covered the whole thing, then left it all to dry, which took about 15 hours.  Once completely dry and crackled I used a combination of Indigo Blu and Graphic45 stamps to decorate.  I finished off by adding the clock mechanism and hands.
