Iheartbooks -- Modge Podge is used to adhere things like paper or even some fabrics to other surfaces. You can buy it at most craft supply stores, or if you want a homemade version, you can take some white glue and water it down a bit. Won't produce as nice a finish as Modge Podge, but if money's tight, you do what have you to do.  Wink

it's georgeous. i love the pic, even more than i'd like girl on girl porn.... a girl on girl porn clock would just be one more thing to hide when the relatives come over!

for anyone who's interested, ikea has clocks that are $2.99 cdn that pop apart really easily and would be perfect for this project. i've used them to decorate like this, and i've bought them just to use the clockworks cause they're way cheaper than buying clockworks at the craft store.

You inspired me so much.. I went out and made one too!

Instead of a pinup mine's a margarete keane.

Mine is a cheapy wal-mart clock $3.97 and a duolicate margaret keane print that i had around:

I heart Ikea! They have such cheap stuff that is great for crafts. I bought an unfinished bookcase from them and painted it.

THEY DO!!! That's what I thought even BEFORE I read your post! I was just scrolling and saw the picture and was like, "Woah! What's with the Olsen clock?"

I LOVE your clock! I did something similar myself but I used a record I bought at a thrift store.... you see, I came home from university, lo and behold my mother replaced my art-deco style clock *eek!gasp* with a baby blue country goose style clock.. now not that I hate the goose, but a baby blue country goose clock does NOT look right  in a red room with victorian style decor with odds and ends picked up from everywhere!(such as fairies, a phone older than my mom(!!!) and enough gardengnomes to frighten small children and the elderly!) Needless to say, I put my foot down and said no country goose was staying in MY bedroom! So I headed out to the nearest thrift store and found the perfect record; a pink record cover with a b&w pic of 2 very surprised looking scotsmen in kilts with the title "The Flying Scotsmen"... you couldn't get anything more perfect than that for someone such as myself (incidentally, I own a kilt and I made a shirt that says I love Guys in Kilts!) since I want to move to Scotland when I finish school... so I made it the same way you made your clock and I'm turning the vinyl record into a bowl (once I find the instructions for that! Tongue ) I'll eventually post a pic of it on here once I get the bowl made so I can put them both up at the same time!
