Tag Tuesday - Clocks

I knew straight away what I wanted to achieve this week.  So here it is.............

My Tagfather Clock!!

It works too and I still have the strap of the watch to use on another project - waste not want not!  I had fun using the Ranger Metal Tape and alcohol and of course Tim's ideology too.  Watch from Derby and Silver metal flower from my pal Jo which she bought all the way from Singapore!

I coloured the pearl topper with alcohol ink and the faux enamelling was achieved with the same.

My pretty pendulum is an ideology charm with a couple of silver bells as counter weights.

Wanted to keep that tag shape and I think it has given my clock a slight Art Deco feel to it.  I really enjoyed embossing this metal foil product.  It makes me want to invest in some of the specialist tools out there.

Last photo - I really must learn how to make one of those wonderful photo montages for occasions like this!


  1. Wow, what a stunning piece! I agree, it's very Art Deco looking, I really love it.

  2. I came here fora nosey at your desk (WOYWW) before heading to Tag Tuesday and find this beauty! This is CRAZY gorgeous Helen! Completely loving it. :0) x

  3. wow, that is some serious metal tag altering, it looks absolutely fantastic. Having made my first metal tag this week, I can now see what this can lead to! Thanks for the amazing inspiration.

    Looking forward to seeing your new tripod set up too, I also struggle with this (space is precious enough without a tripod to add to it!).
    Thanks for visiting my desk already

  4. I absolutely love this clock!!! Awesome!

  5. This is just unbelievable and amazing.Must be the best tag I have ever seen.

    Love Chrissie xx

  6. Neet #5 here - Helen this is fantastic! So realistic, I love how you have adapted the various elements (thinking watch and ideology charm here especially). Who would have thought to use a watch face? I wouldn't!
    You should have kept this under wraps and sent it off to a magazine.
    Would you mind if I copied your idea and gave you credit for it, obviously, I would love to do something like this?

    Hugs xx

  7. Wow such a creative clock and a fantastic design. I love the techniques and colours, really cool.
