Don't Be Such a CRAB

Well its almost Christmas and I wanted to get mybrother and his wife a gift but I was at a loss when searching for the perfect gift.  I just so happened to be bringing a huge stickle order to this artist that painted this crab and I just knew when I saw this print it would be a great gift for them, as they live on the coast in Galveston.  Actually they live 2 blocks from the beach, you can hear the water from their palapas.  I imagine it must be a wonderful place to live.

 I went to Hobby Lobby and bought the clock and took it all apart. I was nervous about taking the clock hands and pieces off but had to do it!  I hand cut the artwork out and mod podged it to the center of the clock.  I added liquid pearls and stickles to the crab.  I then used my favorite technique that I used with my beach kit to make the sand and I put sand at the bottom on the clock along with some super cool shells I had.
I hope that Troy and Michelle love this as much as I loved making it!  Merry Christmas!
