Time... for Paperartsy

The new theme at Paperartsy is "Time" and I have had the week off work on holiday - been out a couple of days as you may have seen, but today was a recover and rest (i.e. laze about) at home day...

I decided to have a play in my journal, with one of the new Paperartsy Hot Pick plates, that just happens to have a clock face in the collage.

I really liked Keren's use of pastels in her clean and simple card, and whilst this is nothing like that, I did use my portfoleo pastels to colour my images!
I stamped the large collage image from HP1507 on the journal page, over the smudged background (the results of the cleaning of some cut and dry foam previously)

the eagle eyed of you might spot some scissor lines..
I cut round the edges of the image, and stamped it again on the page below, allowing just part of it to show behind the top one.

 on the spare piece of paper, I stamped the tulip again and cut it out, to layer it behind the top one before sticking the two pages together; once I'd coloured the images with my portfoleo pastels.

I added a few swipes of paint on a dry piece of cut and dry foam, round the edge of the "bottom" page to bring this into the top page.


for the words, I used the text from Lin's ELB22 "every day is a blessing, every hour is a dream, every minute is a possibility"
