moon clock


The theme at one powerful hour this week is "the Moon" I knew straightaway what image I was going to use, but I slept on the ideas of what I was going to do with it. I think sleeping became my inspiration. I then made this this morning, well within the hour.
I decided to alter a CD, mostly because there was one sitting on my desk, but also because, it echoed the moon idea with being round. I then decided to turn it into a clock, as it had a real "time for bed" feel about it, and I have had this clock mechanism sitting around for ages.
I am also entering this for Theme thursday's pink theme, and This thursday it's all about's Art from your heart theme, as I have used a page from my absolute favourite childhood book, The Enchanted Wood.

The collage image and all stamps are by Inka
