Watch Faces, Art work

I’ve been a little crafty this week, and wanted to show you my efforts.  As regular readers will know, I have been giving my living room a makeover.  I needed to have a few more pictures and artwork, but my budget has dwindled away, so the final touches need to be done with a little bit of imagination. I also wanted to add some more of the teals and turquoises that I had already added.

So I bought a couple of box frames from Debenhams, really reasonable as they are only priced between £4-5.  I went on eBay and purchased some vintage watch faces for £1.99. I copied a picture from a one of my favourite vintage craft books, and added the watch faces with transparent adhesive squares.

Here is the finished result:

Its just the pop of colour that I wanted, I just need to decided where on the wall to put it now.

Thank you for reading
