Steampunk Cuck-owl clock

Hi you all. It's a very cold, windy and frosty evening, not how I would like it to be! Roll on spring!

Today I made a steampunk cuckooowl clock for the challenge at SanDee and Amelie's Steampunk blog.
I managed to resist the temptation to put a real clock-work into it, as I think if any more clocks start ticking in my kitchen I will really go round the twist! I used a cardboard box, covered with some coordinating DCWV papers, and trimmed with washi measuring tape, to measure the hours. I added lots of clockwork and other parts from an old clock, some flowers inside, a rusty owl'face, and a clock with a top hat throning on top. There is another owl holding an hour-glass, can you see it? 

I had fun making it, got very sticky, and never burnt any fingers with the hot glue gun, so that's something!




Have a good day you all, take care,  and keep warm - or cool, as the case may be! And thanks a lot for coming by!

  4. I really love your playful take on the Cuckowl Clock Challenge, Valerie!

    So glad you didn't burn your fingers and had lots of fun! The owl with the hour glass immediately caught my eye and I like all the clock parts and awesome details (for example the corner embellishment or the birdie on top of the clock).

    Thank you very much for joining us at SanDee&amelie's Steampunk challenges!

    Hugs,

  16. Amazing detail in this clock! As you may know, here in the USA most of us change time twice a year...so I try to keep the clocks to a minimum.
