Tag it On - Time

Hello, and welcome to another Dragons Dream Tag It On. This week, it is my turn for the theme and I have chosen the title of a book I loved so much when I read it when it came out a couple of years ago- The Time Traveller's Wife by Audrey Niffenegger. An amazing love story about a man who time travels involuntarily. When I was writing this post I found this review which tells it much better than I can!  Long gone are the days when I thought I would write novels!  It's since been made into a film, which I've not seen - I never think my favourite books convert well, I prefer to remember the story!  (EDIT. since writing this I have seen it as it was on TV at the weekend - and I think they did it quite well!)

Anyhow, I loved the book, and the theme for my tag this week, is "time" Here is my tag...


I covered a tag with paper from Tim Holtz Lost and Found paper stack, covered it with white gesso to tone it back, added some texture (viva Terra paste) painted white.   Embellishments are idea-ology pieces and a small watch face from a bag of bits bought at a show sometime.
Time flies stamp by Paperartsy.

I love that book and haven't yet seen the film for the exact same reason. There aren't many book adaptations that I get on with.

I really love your tag though, I can just imagine the texture on it.
