[quote author=cloudbreakchick
I think that's a compliment...   right?

I love the clock!  I want to make one!  Do you think it would be possible to make one using the record album cover, rather than the record?  

I have a guy's room that I'm decorating...   well, I'm "helping" decorate, which we all know means I'm doing it..   And I want to make him a clock!...   But I want to use the cover rather than the record itself.

Any ideas, anyone?

Hell yes its a compliment   Wink

Anyway.. You could draw faint diagonal pencil lines from corner to corner to find the middle of the record cover. Then you could stab the middle with a cake skewer or something to make a small hole, if you use a cork screw before this to make a small hole it stops the record case showing stretch marks. Then just rub out the lines and put a clock mechanism though the hole and gaffa tape it to the back: P

Amways, i had another idea today to make a calendar, I took a page that fell out an old 1940's bible (happened to be a scary revelations page) and glued it to a sheet of A4 then i put it through the printer and printed an old comic image onto it then I cut it back out. Next i am going to stick one of those little calendar books onto the front and hang it in my room.

You can see it below sorta but its a very bad photo. My cam refuses to take pictures at night and the flash is rubbish. It actually looks a lot better  Lips sealed honest! Ther another one on the right I did on a page of a school book, you can hardly see it though because of the flash back.

Much love

Okay, I really need to get my hands on some comics...  I actually tried to get some off of Ebay, but someone outbid me in the last few minutes...   boo buddy.

Yes, your ideas are absolutely fantastic.   I've just been able to come up with some candles and curtains...   no comics, though.  Have you tried the comic book wallets that someone posted on here?   They look fun!

It's late, and I've been wondering...  How I can stay awake so long and miss so much...

What tutorial did you use to make the card holder? and is that to hold credit cards? If that's the case, I would love to make me a nice one for my debit card. The envelope that it came in is all ugly now.

Please let me know.

I think that a similar effect can be achieved using any basic photo editing software and applying the same tracing method.  another quick way to do this in photoshop is to apply the 'poster edges' filter, but you do give up so control over the results.

J/A/S/O/N & others in the know-
I can't afford photoshop or any fancy programs (or anything at all, really). I have Microsoft PhotoEditor, any hints for doing cool stuff?

GREAMIE-- you are brilliant!!!!!!!!!
