Project Challenge: CLOCK FACE

Hello there sweets, another month has flown by and here we are again with yet another 
DIY blogger challenge. If this is your first time here, let me explain what's going on. 
Each month a group of us bloggers have a different project challenge to come up with. 
This month the challenge given was  CLOCK FACE ....hmmmmm  tricky one right? 

I choose to make something fun & playful for our bonus/playroom, since we 
are just in the process of re-doing that space. Since our son is truly 
a night-owl, it seemed only perfect to make a clock with the theme 
"Night Owl" (our rabbit approved, I might add)!

I am planning on creating a gallery wall in the play room, displaying 
our little artists paintings & master pieces. So home-crafted artwork 
by Mom, should be a good addition. 

 Robbie had these little plush owls in his giant stuffed animal basket. He never 
played  with them, but man did he get mad at me once he found out I took 
them without asking and to top it off, I actually glued one to the clock... 

So here is a quick & easy "HOW TO" 
for the "Night Owl Art"

I found this round piece of wood at Home Depot, perfect shape for 
any clock project. I believe it was around 5 Dollars.

I used Varathane Wood stain as the main color. I used this same stain 
for my last Blogger Challenge project, so I didn't have to buy anything new. 
The color is "WEATHERED GRAY". I rubbed the stain on with an old cloth.

For the tracing of the different sized circles I used kitchen bowls. 
I wasn't going for perfection, since I wanted a PLAYFUL and FUN piece of art.

 I used Acrylic paint to color in the circles. It reminds me of a target shield now. 
For the numbers and letters I used stencils I had at home already. 
I used a black sharpie marker for the tracing.

I added little hooks to the sides to 
attach my rope.

And that's you can see, my numbers 
are not perfectly aligned...Neither are the circles.
All the more character, right?

So here is what my partners in crime 
came up with!!!!
