do you like the bright colors and multiple patterns, but you can't, and that’s right! If you don’t, then take this idea and customize the colors and the patterns for what they>do likes, This decorative clock used stencils from my friends at Handmade Charlotte, and I was so happy to try them out. It’s a large selection of patterns and styles in the line, which you can see here.

Gather These Supplies
wood clock mounted and the clock part kit
FolkArt acrylic paint – Aqua, Titanium White, turquoise, and Yellow Ochre

Mod smorgasbord of Satin
Scrapbook-paper – the coordination of the
punch, or clip art to cut your arrow pattern (I used the clock is my Sizzix Big Shot)
This base that I started with. You can do this business in any craft. Make sure to set the appropriate clock-parts-kit at the same time other places for the at kits on ebay and Etsy).
I started with the painting of the center of the clock face with turquoise.
This is when the templates come into play! Tape on the front of the watch and with a dry brush technique with a stencil brush, paint your pattern.
“Dry brush” is to say, the color on the brush and go from there – and then tap, tap on the template. Not catchy to listen to? You can see this technique illustrated (with the same template!) in a video that my friend Candie here.
I completed one side of the clock, and then moved to the other side to finish matching them when I went (I'll leave the first one I painted is dry first).
Once I had completed the inner part, I painted the outside and back with several layers of Aqua. I also painted the hands of my clock kit with Yellow Ochre. Let it all dry.
While I was waiting for the paint to dry, I cut the arrows with my fabuloso Big Shot. I used the arrow die found here, but you can also use clip art to cut out your shapes as well.
were Once my arrows cut, I had decided how to organize them. Weird? Just? I went with straight.
Mod smorgasbord of the arrows down, if you’ve found it.
Then the whole watch face, a layer of Mod collection and drying. Install the clock face than you (you may have some glue) will. You have to wait 24 hours before hanging!
I love my new watch. I have a lot of white walls, so this bad boy looks perfect. What colors would you watch for your stencils?
