WOYWW 202 – still the clock


Hello all you WOYWWers!

I am still working on my clock, although I did actually make a little more progress on it yesterday after my post.  Not a lot, but a little. I wanted the clock to be bigger, so I cut a large circle from black cardstock and attached it to the back of the clock, with the original backing circle of chipboard behind that. And I want to add some numbers to it.


I simply printed out a guide from the internet and centred the clock face on it.  Then I could mark the placement of the circles.




As you can see in the first photo, I used the scraps from the backing prints to punch the number circles, and then cut the numbers with the Cricut – North Point, one of my all time fave fonts. And the gear in from another font (Lombax, I think) and that adds a little interest to the centre. So not TOO much left to do to finish it up.  I think I would make another one of these.  It was fun.  Now I need to shop and hop around the WOYWW desks then off to ice skating with DD.  Busy day, fer sure!
