Balance with anything but a card

 Hello blogger friends!
There is a brand new challenge that goes live today at Anything But a Card.
The challenge is BALANCE....
I gotta tell you that I struggled coming up with what to do with this challenge.
I mean how do you translate an action into an art piece?
Can you see what I created?
Yep, I altered a little alarm clock.
I did it in a steampunk style,
I think that a clock is the perfect thing to represent balance.
The precise ways that the mechanism has to work, the trust that we all put in
our clocks everyday keep us in balance as well!
Plus I got to use some of the new product that I snagged at after Christmas sales!
(The cogs, and plaque) 
Here is a close up of the little piece of dictionary paper with balance that I added
to the face of the clock, along with the lacy doily, the painted 5,
and the cogs around the 7 and 8.  
Finally at the base of the clock I added this plaque.
I hope you'll hop over to the new challenge at Anything But a Card,
get that imagination running, there are endless possibilities.
