I had to redo the clock in my crafting room first. Nicole the knitter sent me a Doctor Who image: http://celebs.icanhascheezburger.com/2011/09/29/funny-celebrity-pictures-doctors-in-time/, that as soon as I saw it, I thought that would rock as a clock design with a little tweaking. Then I thought, hey, I know how Cafe Press works, I can create my own Doctor Who clock...because who other than a time lord should have a clock?

Then I heard my crafting room clock ticking above me and the light bulb went on above my head!!!! I'll make my own Doctor Who clock with that clock!!!! Hell, I blame Nicole for my Who addiction anyway.

Before: a simple clock with grapes on it.

The design I came up with in Photoshop first and then printed out. I can always add in a new image for #12 someday later on, if I feel like it. The background was some random wallpaper from a outer space site. I rotated it a little bit, adjusted the colors to more blues and greens, and gave it a little bit of a motion blur.

After: I repainted the out metal ring of the clock and clear coated it. Then I printed out the design I came up with and Mod Podged it onto the back piece (I removed the entire grape background). Then I used more Mod Podge to hold all those beads in place. The randomness of the colors and sizes made me think of Saturn's rings. The image is about 9.25" across.
