Time...

Hope you're all having a good Sunday. I have been (am still) glued to the tennis for the Australian Open final - what a fabulous match! They've been playing over 5 hours and I'm exhausted just watching.... looks like it won't be Nadal's day though...

Anyhow, I started these pages in my journal yesterday during the football and finished it off today..
Covered the pages with the clock page from Tim's Lost and Found stack - embedded some natural hemp into the page and painted over it  - inked, stencilled and stamped over the pages.



Used a mixture of distress inks & Paperartsy Fresco paints.

The little clocks (also from the Lost and Found stack) are covered in crackle accents glue but you can't see it very well.

I did have trouble photographing this, even in the daylight.

You know, this one really speaks to me. Where we have lost so many people over the last 5 or 6 years time does become ever so much more important doesn't it? Much more aware of it.
