Paris Clock

Every time I see a clock at a sale all I can think of is how fast I can put it in my cart and get it home to paint. I found this little gem for 3.00 and knew it would awesome fun.

I painted it with a dark base coat and then the antique white, then a dark glaze.  I used this Paris Subway art design by Kim Klassen and and piece of printed paper as the back round.

I liked the Paris subway are so much I decided to use it on an old roof slate that I had.  I usually paint them but this one had a hole in it from years of weathering.  So I got out the Modge Podge and several designs I printed off from "The Graphics Fairy".   The music paper is actually some vintage sheets from a book I got off the "free" blanket.  That's right it wasn't even a table it was just a blanket tossed on the grass with a paper sign that had the glorious words "Free" written on it. 
God bless those who give joy to others by sharing the things they no longer need.
