Scrapbooking with Globecraft

Hello, it is Laura, and today I am using one of the Painting Surfaces from Globecraft on my scrapbook page. I chose the lovely Cuckoo Clock.

Since most of you probably know how to set up a scrapbook page, and you wouldn't have the same photos as me anyway, I am going to focus on how I decorated the clock for this page. I have included ALL the products for the page in the materials list.


1)  Run a little Glastique around the top of the clock. You will be using it as an adhesive.

2)  Place the wood grain paper over the clock and rub down with your fingers. If you have a brayer, you could use it instead.

3)  Flip the project over, place on self healing mat and trim around the edges with your craft knife.

4)  Use the tip of the knife to remove paper from the holes. You can place it into the paper and spin it to remove the excess.  

5)  Repeat steps 1-3 with the eaves area, all the leaves and the acorns. Be aware of what direction the wood grain is going in so that it look the way you like it.

6)  Use sponge brush to apply the white paint over the clock face. Let dry.

7)  Use the Distress Ink and the blender to distress the edges of all of the papered pieces and the clock face.

8)  Cut some scalloped shapes from the brown card stock and distress the edges as above.

9)  Use Glastique on the edge of the roof.

10)  Place the scalloped edge of your shape so that it hangs over the side of the roof.

11)  Cut against the straight side.
12)  Continue steps 10 and 11 until the roof is complete.
13)  Cut wedges out of scalloped shapes and Glastique, to hanging pieces.  Start at the bottom.

14)  Continue to Glastique the scalloped wedges, overlapping them from the bottom up until both pieces are full.  Let dry.

15)  Flip over. You will notice that the brown card stock goes over the edge. Trim this with your craft knife.

16)  Distress the brown pieces.
17)  Cut a circle from the black card stock that is slightly larger than the clock face.
18)  Adhere clock face to the black card stock with Glastique.
19 )  Cover the small door with Glastiqued black card stock.
20)  Use Embossing Powder Adhesive on the clock hands, cover with Vintage Black Embossing Powder and heat set.  Make two layers.
21)  Use Embossing Powder Adhesive and Victorian Bronze on the pendulum. Create one layer.
22)  For a second layer on the pendulum, use the Vintage Gold Embossing Powder. I used two different colors to create more interest.
23)  Use Glastique to adhere the black backed clock face into position. The small holes should line up.
24)  Use Glastique to adhere the small door. The bottom should just cover the slat on the backing.
25)  Adhere clock to the paper.
26)  Place pendulum in place and adhere. The hole in the top of the pendulum should line up with the center hole on the bottom of the clock.
27)  Use the Big Bite to create a hole through the two pieces and into the background paper.
28)  Place brad through hole.
29)  Line up the dangling pieces under the two additional holes on the bottom of the clock.
30)  Adhere dangling pieces in place.
31)  Use the Big Bite to create holes in the paper under the dangle holes.
32)  Measure chain slightly longer than the distance between the dangle hole and the clock hole.
33)  Put a brad through the end of the chain and into the hole on the clock.

34)  Place the other end into the hole on the dangle and adhere to the back of the page.

35)  Your clock should look roughly like the picture below before you add the details.

36)  Use Glastique to adhere the detail pieces to the clock.

Thanks for stopping by today. I have a different project on my personal blog at, so stop by and take a look. Until next time, goodbye!
