I knew as soon as I laid eyes on the G&P Cuckoo clock that I wanted to make it into a focal point embellishment for a scrapbook layout. I love this shape because you can go elegant and vintage, or trendy and cute. I wanted a cute vibe so I chose to cover the body of the clock with fun patterned paper. This is easy to do, I simply traced the shape onto patterned paper, cut it out, and adhered it to the clock with G&P Glastique Gloss. I also used G&P 3D Enamel Gel in Napthol Red to cover the bottom ledge of the birdhouse body.

I needed to color the rest of the pieces in order to build my clock, so I turned to the G&P 3D Enamel Gel colors Cobalt Turquoise, Leafy Green, and Napthol Red. I colored a few pieces with acrylic paint as well. After coloring the pieces, they needed to dry so I left them to set up. During that time, I kept busy by planning and beginning the rest of my layout.

When the pieces were all dry, it was time to assemble the clock. This is easily done by using G&P Glastique Gloss as an adhesive!

Now that my adorable cuckoo clock was done, I finished scrapping my layout. I think having such a bold, beautiful embellishment truly makes this page about me and my scrappy Bestie sing!

Can't get enough G&P goodness? I don't blame you one bit! Head over to my blog  Distress to Impress to see how I used the G&P Keys to make a border for heritage and vintage pages.

AWE, we look so cute and warm! And here I thought you were gonna use that on a layout telling the world how cuckoo we are.....ROFL. LOVE IT! Especially since we saw that cool solar 'rainbow' right after this. Those gels are pretty cool too. I really like the finish they have.
