I love all the little clocks...such great colors and design! I think a different background would be better...maybe even just a plain color so the clocks can really shine.

Thanks, Kerry! I originally had them on a light, plain background (a buttery, pale yellow), but that didn't seem to have enough oomph. I will try a plain, dark background and see what that looks like. I really want these retro colors to pop.

I like A - lots more clocks. As well as trying a plain background, could you try using finer stripes as you would retain a bit of texture that way and not detract from the clocks.

Trying to decide between lots o' small clocks and fewer, bigger clocks. Are the small clocks too busy? What do you guys think? (Still toying with the background, also - thinking of changing it to more of a wood grain instead of stripes). Thanks!
