Pinterest Craft Day 6

We had a light turnout at our last craft day. But that doesn't matter - we still have fun no matter the numbers. We had decided that we would do a "book clock" at this meeting. Sadly, the one lady who really wanted to do it was unable to come at the last minute. 

Joyce came up with an interesting novel she found at the thrift store. It has a center medallion in embossed gold on the front, and a dot in the exact center of the book. This gave her a perfect place to drill for the clock face. And the swirls of the medallion are placed just right to look like 3:00, 6:00, 9:00, and 12:00. She had some difficulty cutting layers and layers of pages to make a spot to bury the clock works. And then more difficulty to get the clock to keep time, but all turned out well in the end.

Adie decided to begin working on a shadowbox that she had percolating in her brain for several years. She already had the black shadowbox. All she needed to do was pull out her childhood mementos and find a few yardsticks. She arranged her mementos on the shadowbox background, and then she cut the yardsticks to form dividers between her elements.  A few nails, a few shots of black spray paint, and a few straight pins to hold it all in place. Ready to hang!
Sorry about the poor quality photo; it is verrrry hard to photograph through glass.
