Kiddies Week kicks off!

Hello, its Karen here starting the KIDDIES WEEK for you.  I have used the lovely Fairy Castle Chalkboard to make a clock for a little girls room.

Its a good size for a wall and I know my 6yr old niece will love it!!!!  I painted the base with Fresco paints and stamped some swirls lightly as well as adding some some lightly stencilled flowers at the bottom.  The top section was smothered with texture paste.  When that was dry I painted it with more Fresco and added a clear glitter paint to add a bit of sparkle.  I painted 12 mini flowers to put the numbers on.  (the numbers have been stamped and cut out & stuck onto the flowers)  A hole in the centre of the base was made for the clock mechanism and a pretty paper circle was added.  The same paper was used to make flags for the turrets.  PLEASE NOTE - this castle DOES NOT COME WITH A CLOCK MECHANISM but they are easy to get hold of and pretty inexpensive.

Here are the pieces as they come...

Now if you have a little boy there is an option for him too :-D  There is also a Train Chalkboard which would look fabulous as a clock...

Take care out there xxx
