Rock Clock...

Tuesday, March 23, 2010

This week Imaginisce and Tombow are joining forces and having a blog swap where they will be sharing ideas and creations using each others fabulous products.
How exciting it was to receive such a generous box of goodies from Tombow, full of every type of adhesive imaginiable and to top it off, a set of beautiful markers... can't wait to have a play!
So, last night I went and raided my vinyl LP collection again and thoroughly got busy creating a clock for my daughters room. She is getting to the age where pink and cutesy just aren't her thing anymore so I used the Imaginisce Live Loud collection and created a bright and funky 'ROCK CLOCK'.
And I'm very excited to say that I have found an adhesive that has done something I never imagined would be possible... I glued eyelets standing up on their little edge to the LP and they stuck!!! What did I use? Tombow's super strong bond MONO Metal Liquid Glue that adheres metal and plastic embellishments to paper... well I took it one step further and found that it glues metal embellishments to an old vinyl record!

My daughter was very excited to wake this morning and find her new 'rock clock' hanging in her room.
From farm to you...
