Below are the photos, as promised, and a short description as to the contents of the photos.
This is the almost full frontal view of the clock.
Here is the view of it in its entirety.
This is the top of the clock, with butterfly wings, attached to a vintage button, around the hole for the cuckoo bird. A little below the base of the wings, you can see the bird. There is a book corner attached to the peak of the clock for a finshed look and the front of the roof has been painted with crackle paint, then distressed with walnut ink.
This is a collection of peacock, pheasant and other bird feathers, under a gear and metal copper flower that I made. Tiny, very downy feathers peak out from behind the metal flower which is sitting on a gear shape, which has been sprayed with copper glimmer mist.
This is a view through the square hole in the front of the clock which reveals the metal laden front cover of the album housed inside the clock. It has metal keyholes, chains, keys, clock face, and other metal embellishments on its cover.
Toward the base of the clock, you'll see four clocks, complete with moving hands for adornment.
Here's a shot of the album that was "hiding" inside the clock, sitting next to the clock itself
The exposed cover of the album. There are numerous tags inside the coin envelope tucked inside the mini that have ball chain attached to them - adding to the "heavy metal" ambiance of Steampunk.
All of the pages, coin envelopes, and both covers are attached by two 3" jump rings, again to stay with the metal theme. Each of the holes that punched for binding the pages together, have eyelets attached to reinforce the pages/covers because of the metal rings. They are various colors depending on the patterned papers that were covering each page.
Now, we start looking at the pages of the inside of the album itself. This is inside the front cover. Tags are tucked into the pocket created by a tag that was adhered to the inside.
Yet another pocket with a tag.
Next page has a pocket with tag, and the flap that lifts up can also be home to a journaling block or photo, with or without a mat. Same with the patterned paper on the right. All of the following pages have a great deal of space for placing photos where ever and when ever you want them. Every section has multiple tags used for the same purpose(s).
Flap that lifts up revealing more space for photos.
Two more spaces and a double sided tag in the pocket.
On the left, you'll see a coin envelope, that has been distressed, which holds 1-2 tags for photos/journaling. There is patterned paper on each side of each coin envelope. On this album, I cut the flap off and punched a finger pull for easy removal of the tags. These are the tags that the ball chains are connected to.
Double page layout for photos/journaling and a pocket with double sided tag.
Left side, flap to hold photos/journaling, flips up to expose two more areas for photos/journaling, and a pocket with double sided tag, again for photos/journaling. Right side is a coin envelope, both sides covered with patterned paper and contains two tags, one with ball chain attached.
A view of the pages described above, only now the flap on the left has been lifted.
Back side of previous coin envelope, and next page with slash pocket and space for tags.
Lifting the previous right flap reveals a pocket with 2 large spaces for photos/journaling and a double sided tag.
Next set of two pages - described below.
Lifting the previous left flap, reveals the pocket, double spaces for photos/journaling, and double sided tag. The right side finds another coin envelope.
Back side of previous coin envelope and right side has a V-shaped pocket for tag holding.
Lifting up the previous V-shaped pocket page, reveals double spaces for photos/journaling and a double sided tag, also for photos/journaling.
Next two pages, described below.
Lift left flap, and the double areas contain space for photos/journaling and the large, double sided tag also can be used for photos/journaling. The right side reveals another coin envelope.
Back side of coin, right side has tag mounted to create a pocket for more tags.
Flap up and double sided space for photos/journaling and double sided tag.
Left, the last section which reiterates what all the other pages were designed to hold.
More two page spreads.
More two page spreads.

Left side of clock open where album slides in.
Rights side opening where album sits, showing that the coin envelope chains dangle outside the opening to add to the metal look of the Steampunk.
Well, that's it for the clock and album. I'd love to know what you think. Please post a comment if you have the time, I'd love to hear from you.
Till next time - Sharon
