Craft Barn Alpha Challenge - T is for....

.... Time-zone

Luckily my dictionary had more T  words to choose from that Y's in the last challenge!!

I remembered while I was flicking a stamp from B-Line Designs that I've not used in a while (don't I always say that?!)  and off I went..

 I painted my page with Irish Cream Fresco paint by Paperartsy. Stamped the world map and the time-zone stamp on tissue paper and glued it to the dictionary. They did get very wrinkly...!










The destinations are from the Tim Holtz Papillon set, I just cut out the city names.
 Stamped various clocks and drew some times on them by hand.  I seem to have LOTS of clock/watches stamps....

Lovely word choice and page! The clocks stand out really well. I love images of clocks, even though time passes way too fast these days! Julie Ann xx

Great page - and good to see time-zone and not just time. LOVE that time-zone stamp, it looks great on tissue paper. I bet it looks great on micropore tape too (DIY washi tape). MMx
