i recently finished stitching the autumn whirligig design by heart in hand - these designs are super quick to stitch. over the summer i decided i wanted to frame the whirligig series in a tim holtz assemblage clock - but it took me a while to get started painting the clock. i used a set of verday paints that i've had for several years - i bought the paints a way long time ago when i saw a one of these clocks painted with them at the queen's ink in maryland. the paints were super easy to use & i let each coat dry for several days before adding to it. i've already stitched the summer whirligig & plan on switching out the design for each season. up next - winter!
