    DIRECTIONS:

    1. Take apart the Assemblage clock and paint all surfaces, first layer with the golden yellow. Allow to dry and then paint the next layer with the purple/burgundy.
    2. Sand between layers or after both layers have been painted to give it a distressed look.
    3. Lightly paint again any areas where sanding may have gone down to the silver and allow it to dry.
    4. To make the design so that it is not so deep into the clock, cut two pieces of foamcore in a 2-1/2" circle and glue the two pieces together.
    5. Cut another piece of foamcore the size of the opening of the clock. This will be the surface for the design of the face of the clock.
    6. Glue this layer to the 2-stacked foamcore piece.
    7. On the surface, design the layout using the paper stack of Lost & Found and the embellishments.
    8. Glue all layers and embellishments in place.
    9. Reassemble the clock without the glass, inserting the stack of foamcore with the top piece designed.
    10. Using the stack of Ideology Lost & Found to create cards, select one piece for the base of your card.
    11. Decide the size of the card and lightly score the fold with the X-Acto® knife so that it folds nicely.
    12. Apply embellishments and alcohol inks to the surface to create a theme or to give it an aged look. Glue items on the cardstock with E6000 glue. Allow to dry before use.
