Altered Halloween Clock

Time for another great challenge over at Creative Artiste this month. 

Our theme is always
"Anything Mixed Media Goes"
Please make sure you use multiple mediums on your  projects.

 I have made an altered Halloween clock.  I used an old clock that I took this body out of the clock and  made a collage of from some paper napkins I had in my stash along with other Halloween papers for my stash.

This is the napkin I used for the main part of the collage.

Additional views

I used crackling paste,texture paste and an antiquing solution to give the clock an antique look. 

I added leaves to the outside of the clock and added a Wink of Stella and glitter to the collage for sparkle. 

Thank you for stopping by and have a creative week.  Remember to stop by our challenge blog to be inspired by our creative design team. 
Hope you will join in the challenge this month.
