If you are up-cycling a canvas, Gesso the sides to cover any existing picture. Don’t worry about the front as this will be covered by the paper. 
Cut grey board to fit onto the back of the canvas and glue into place. 
Mark the centre of the canvas by drawing diagonal lines from corner to corner. Make suitable sized hole for the clock mechanism. 

Use a 20cm x 20cm piece of milk foundation card as your decorative base. Using the Sue Wilson dies or cut by hand an 18.5cm x 18.5cm square on lilac coloured paper for back panel. Use the Milk Foundation Card to cut another square 13cm x 13cm. Make a 12.5cm x 12.5cm square using the Blowing Kisses paper making sure that the image is in the centre of the square.
Colour the edges of the foundation card and the canvas using the Decadent Grape Colour Cloud and the Smoothie. 
Arrange 3 doilies in the top left hand corner of the canvas, over lapping the edge slightly. 

Stick all the layers in place in the order that you made them and stick the topper to the base canvas. 

From the reverse and using the hole that you previously made in the base board, carefully cut through to the front with a craft knife. Take your time with this. Attach the clock mechanism as per the instructions. 

Add a length of the pink raffia across the bottom of the canvas with a small raffia bow. 
Colour some wooden hearts and a character of your choice with pencil crayons and stick on to the front. 
Trim two bunting pennants and stick in place along with 6 small adhesive dots. 
Add a suitable battery, hang and enjoy.
