new year, new challenge. Paperartsy and Tando

I haven't done much crafting due to Christmas and having a crafty room sort out. But after attending the bramford crop and completing a scrapbooking page (now that's good for me) I have felt inspired to craft
So on to the new challenge. Paperartsy do a weekly challenge and this weeks artist is Clare Lloyd who has a fantastic blog, with tutorials and stunning, inspirational work
Her first challenge was an altered wooden spool and this is my take on her challenge
I have used fresco paints, paperartsy ding dong and JOFY leaf stamps, wire, paper roses, metal clock hands and a chipboard cog
 
 this  is the side view of my piece as you can see I have used an American crafts round ribbon spool as my base for my clock bird and that is fixed to the spool with the use of wire and a couple of black buttons
